The Democratic Women’s Study Club of Long Beach will be hosting their 83rd Annual Great American Picnic on Saturday, August 8 at noon at Wardlow Park. Each year, this event attracts a large number of elected officials and guests from Long Beach and surrounding cities.
“Our annual picnic is a great opportunity for Democrats, both men and women, from all areas, ages and backgrounds to come together to discuss like-minded issues and celebrate the work we’ve done over the past year,” said club President Herlinda Chico. “Next year will be an important election year and it is vital that we continue to engage voters.”
Hot dogs and hamburgers will be generously donated and grilled by Long Beach Firefighters, Local 372.
The Great American Picnic also serves as an opportunity to recognize an outstanding Democrat. This year we will surprise a long-time labor and party leader with a lifetime membership. Entry into the BBQ is $5 for non-members and $5 suggested donation for members. The cost of the BBQ will be waived for those who join or renew their membership for $20 or have a financial hardship.
The Democratic Women’s Study Club of Long Beach is the oldest chartered Democratic Club west of the Mississippi, founded more than 80 years ago in Long Beach. For information about the picnic or the club, please contact Herlinda Chico at 562.652.5600 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
