Drinking Liberally Addison May 31

Drinking Liberally Addison will be meeting Tuesday May 31st at The Londoner.

We had planned to switch to 4th Tuesdays, but with the extra Tuesday in the month, the calendar and event invites got thrown off. So we'll stick with the special 5th!

Drinking Liberally Addison April 26

DL Addison will not be meeting tonight. Instead we have moved our meeting this month to April 26th at 5:30pm at The Londoner. Please join us for some post primary liberal chat.

We're also putting out a call to one or more of our regular attendees to become a chapter host! John has been the founding host of the Addison chapter for almost 11 years, and we have had some other co-hosts along the way. But we have not had any in a few years.

To become a host, you merely need to be willing to be involved with as much involvement as you want to put into it. It could be that you just make sure you or the other host is able to attend our monthly meeting. It could be that you help send these emails or admin our Facebook page and group. It could be you help set up special movie nights, debate watch parties, etc. And as a host, you can attend an annual weekend conference with hosts from around the country to socialize and share best practices (this year is in Philadelphia!)

What you won't do as a host? Don't endorse political candidates with the Living Liberally name (we are not a PAC so we can not). And in general, don't be *that* guy(or gal). You all know *that* guy and you don't like him/her.

Just be awesome. Inquire within if you want to be an awesome co-host.

Drinking Liberally Addison Tuesday 6:30

*Note the special start time of 6:30pm, although you are always welcome to get there early
