Gathering Reminder

Hi Gang,

This week we get to welcome new member Andrei to our group. Andrei actually came looking for us about a month ago but not knowing that we were all out on the patio, and seeing the back room empty, left. We're certainly glad he found us last week and look forward to seeing him again in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Andrei!

The Democratic National Convention begins Monday. It should be interesting Tuesday to take in a bit of viewing.

Hi Gang,

Another week, one more new member! This is fun! This week we welcome Jim to our group. It was great meeting him last week, and we look forward to having him with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Jim!

Diane and Cass will be going to the DL National conference in Philadelphia the weekend of July 29th. Do you have any suggestions, questions, or comments you would like them to bring up at the business meeting? Now is the time to have your voice heard on the National level so don't be shy.

For those of us living in school district 2, Boiling Springs, there will be a referendum on the November ballot asking us to approve a $120 million dollar loan to build a new high school. As we understand, no new taxes will be assessed, the loan will be paid out over 25 years with the expected increase in tax revenue over the term. We hope to have our Boiling Springs folk with us so we can talk about this.

Time to wrap our thoughts and hands around a pint or two, it's been another not so great week.

Hi Gang,

It's time to think about good things. A few weeks ago Daniel ask us if we could help in a community project in which he's involved. The City of Spartanburg has received a grant to install art projects within the city. Daniel wanted to know if we as a group could help for a couple of hours in hanging one of the cool things planned to light up our city. The initial response from those at the gathering that night was positive. It will happen some time in August, and we all requested a weekend day. This would be a good thing, we can bring our banner to get our name out there, we won't be too far from a pub, so beer is definitely an option, and we can be a part of what will turn out to be a great event. Hopefully Daniel can attend Tuesday with more details.

Deb is thinking about planning a "Meet Your Neighbors" gathering, possibly at Cleveland Park. A cook out and community event with invites going out to our law enforcement personnel and community at large. This will also be a good thing. Deb will fill us in on what her plans are for this next time she's with us and we'll see how we can help.

Gathering Reminder/ROAD TRIP!

Hi Gang,

First off please accept our apology for the several previous reminders. Still having a situation with the not so new now laptop.

So you have read about welcoming our new members, so no reason to go over that again. But good that they were welcomed twice!

The Nu-Way will be closed Tuesday and that's where the road trip comes in. Dan and Nicole have offered to open their home, yard, and pool for a DL Gathering/Fourth of July Party on July 4th, Monday. Bring a swimsuit, towel, a side dish to share, anything you would like to drink or grill, and musical instruments to make merry. Fireworks welcome, kid friendly. In case of inclement weather, everyone out of the pool!!

To RSVP and get directions, email Nicole: Nicole@ThatVoiceWorks.com or phone 864-266-9806.

Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers MONDAY July 4th at 4:00 PM at Dan and Nicole's. Put on your happy face on and join us!

Hi Gang,

It's quite often that we have the opportunity to welcome a new member to our group. This week is a wonderful rare occasion in that we get to welcome three new people to this Tuesday thing we have going on!! Carrie, Dan, and Nicole joined us last week. It was great to have them with us and get to know them. We're looking forward to having them with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Carrie, Dan, and Nicole!

The United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union causing a bit of a financial hiccup. Now the voters are saying that they voted for the exit thinking that it would never pass; they want a redo. Pay attention people, never throw your vote away.

The House Democrats staged a sit-in in Congress last week. There were some fine words spoken on the actual floor of Congress, can we get some legislation now?

Deb Morrow is back from The People's Summit in Chicago and will be joining us Tuesday to fill us in on what the Summit was all about. We're certain her comments will be interesting and informative, a can't miss opportunity. Welcome back Deb!
