Fall Breakfast! 2 Weeks till Elections & More!

Greetings from Patrick (& Kate)
Dear Democrats, 

As October draws to a close, many town and ward committees are hosting annual fall breakfasts and other autumn-themed events to raise funds for their work, celebrate the efforts of activists, and hear from elected officials. These events are a great way for Democrats to come together before or after the election to strategize, strengthen relationships, and build new connections! 

Check the Dispatch to see if any committees near you are hosting breakfasts, and, if not, consider hosting your own! Be sure to send any events to events@massdems.org so we can promote them in the dispatch! 

And with November just around the corner, remember there are only TWO weekends left until the municipal elections on November 5th! Now is the time to find a way to help a Democrat win on the 5th! Check here to see some of the critical races where Democrats could use your help! http://bit.ly/2qirszM 

Have a great weekend! 

Sincerely, 

Patrick Coyne 
Communications Manager, Massachusetts Democratic Party

If you have events that you would like to include in our weekly Dispatch, please email us at events@massdems.org by Thursday at 5:00 pm so we can include in our Friday email.
