The next monthly gathering of the Hanover Democratic Men's Forum will be held on Wednesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm at the home of Rick Lux, 11253 Silverstone Drive, Mechanicsville 23116.  These Democratic Men's Forums provide an opportunity for Hanover Democratic men to meet, socialize, talk politics and hear interesting speakers.  The host and Chair of these Democratic Men's Forums, Nelson Vaughan, says hors-d'oeuvres will be served.

This month's speaker will be Ola Hawkins a member of the Hanover County School Board.  Ms. Hawkins is a native of Richmond, attended college in New York and Virginia and is, I believe the only member of the school board with any hands-on educational experience.  Come and learn how our children and grandchildren are being educated to be viable members of our society, what issues they have faced and what issues they will face in the future.  Come prepared with questions/issues.  We are hoping also to be joined by a representative of the Vangie Williams for Congress campaign and the coordinated Kaine/Williams campaign who will give us updates on their campaigns.

The purpose of these monthly Men's Forums is to socialize, invigorate, educate and elect Democrats and is a great opportunity to get to know like-minded Democratic men in a way that you just can't in other venues in this predominantly Republican county.  The monthly Saturday morning committee meetings are great but you don't have the opportunity to talk and to get to know one another on a more social level.  It also gives those who can't attend the Saturday morning meetings a chance to get involved.  So please join us on Wednesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm.  Don't miss this opportunity to socialize and mobilize. 

RSVP to Nelson Vaughan at or call the cell phone and text messages 201.826.7093; home 804.496.6217.

If you are a woman and receive this, please send to your favorite Democratic male relative, neighbor or friend.
