This Wednesday at DL

Are you ready for this Wednesday? What's so special about this Wednesday? First, it's the last Wednesday before our Drinking Liberally 7 year anniversary party and the last DL before the Primary. So there will be much to talk about and much to plan.

Have you decided who you will vote for in the Primary? If so, are you advocating for your candidate? Come to DL to push, lobby and stand out for your favorite. After the election, whoever gets in, then hold them to their campaign promises.

Democracy does not end with our vote, it is where it begins. Don't forget that and have them stay the course.

See you all this Wednesday at DL, 72 Main St., Milford , MA, anytime from 6:30 on or until the Turtle runs out of your favorite beverage, and your mother calls you home.

You're Chapter Leaders,
Christine, Karen, Kate, and Jay

There a chance for a Milford bus option.

MILFORD OPTION:
If people in the Milford area want their own bus, they need to register for the Worcester bus (1-day trip) AND INDICATE IN THE BLANK SPACE AVAILABLE THAT THEY WANT TO LEAVE FROM ANOTHER LOCATION, IN THIS CASE, MILFORD.

There are 47 seats on the coach bus. They ALL must be filled in order to have the bus depart from Milford; otherwise, the bus will depart from Worcester's Union Station. Once the seats are filled, Better Future Project (the nonprofit that supports 350MA) will arrange for a departure location in Milford and inform everyone on the list.

Sign up here to register for and pay for the bus ticket:

Highlights from DL

We had a great turnout at DL. Joe Hall, candidate for State Rep. for Bellingham, parts of Uxbridge, Millville and Blackstone, stopped by. Kate Donaghue came to spend time with us as well as the usual suspects.
