Chair Marcee Stone-Vekich's Message for December, 2014
I don't believe there are any people I know whose lives have not been touched in some way by mental illness. Whether it's personal, a family member, co-worker or friend; we all see the effects of untreated mental illness. The most insidious part of it is that the future is forever changed and the damage is exponential. We know this and yet can't calculate the toll on our society. The loss of life, creativity and knowledge, the cost to us as a nation is more than mere dollars. The 34th District Democrats the last few years have donated to the Navos Toy Drive during the holidays. It's a small gesture but we also do this so you're aware of the work that they do in our community. Please go to their website and learn more about their work. www.navos.org.
So in the spirit of the season, please bring an unwrapped gift for a Navos family. If you did not pick up a gift tag at our November meeting, contact Joy Pakulak (206.380-5448), or go to www.navos.org to donate or shop online. Special thanks to Joy who is coordinating our efforts to support Navos, an organization that benefits the most vulnerable in our community.
Our annual holiday party is Wednesday, December 10, 6:30 PM at the Hall at Fauntleroy. All members and their guests (partners, spouses, children, & parents) are welcome to attend. This is a party so there are no speeches or asks, just fun! Entertainment is the Elliott Brothers Jazz trio.
Please bring a potluck side dish or dessert or two to share, along with any special dietary restricted foods your family may require. The District provides hams, turkey, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
We'll present our 2014 Membership awards and a very special Lifetime Achievement award. (There's still time to nominate someone on our recognition page here.).
Stay tuned for our 2015 membership drive now with the added capability of contributing monthly.
Thank you for your involvement and support of the 34th Legislative District Democrats.
