Coffee is brewing!
TBA in January 2019
All Democratic Women are Welcome!
All Democratic Women are invited to join us in January as we begin our seventh year of the Hanover Democratic Women's CoffeeCaucus. Because of the busy holidays, there won't be a December Coffee, but Information about the January Coffee will be coming in the new year.
Our Coffee Caucus is a growing group of Democratic women of all ages who meet monthly, sometimes in the day and sometimes in the evening, at the homes of volunteer hostesses at different locations around the county. Our goal is to enable as many women as possible to get to know one another so that we can better work together. We have no formal memberships or dues.
For more information, please contact Diane Neergaard at email@example.com,or 804-304-1951.
Because of the holidays, we are not having a Men's Forum in December, but hope to see you at the December HDC Meeting on Saturday morning December 8 at 10:00 am at the Ashland Coffee and Tea. The Men's Forums will resume again in January.
Do have a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Joyous Holiday Season!
