Club Presidents Message

October 2021

My Fellow Democrats,

In the fall of 2019, the Democratic Club of Hot Springs Village initiated a series of “Blue Plate Specials,” lunch hour discussion groups held at local restaurants. We had covered the topics of gun violence, immigration and climate change when Covid put an end to our in-person luncheons. Last month, I re-started the discussion group via Zoom in a lively question and answer meeting with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Chris Jones.

I would like your advice as we go forward with this valuable means of airing our opinions and learning valuable new information about issues of importance to us. First, are you ready to start meeting in-person? Second, what is the topic you would most like for us to address in our next discussion?

Thank you for your help in restoring the Blue Plate Specials!!

The Democratic Club of Hot Springs Village provides activities to benefit the Democratic Party, as well as fellowship among members and guests. Quarterly meetings – usually held in January, April, July and October – combine social interaction with interesting programs featuring candidates or experts on various issues of national or local interest.

An annual “FunRaiser” is usually held in June to raise funds for club activities and local candidates.

A quarterly newsletter, full of timely information, editorial pieces and club news, as well as occasional e-blasts, keep members informed of news and activities.
