Democrats Abroad Victoria - 4th of July Pub Night

Victoria Democrats Abroad Chapter

Invite you to our

Red, White &Brew!

Independence Day Celebration and Voter Registration

Friday, July 4th, 2014

5 PM - 10 PM


     Penny Farthing Pub

     2228 Oak Bay Avenue

     No host bar / No minors please


     Seating limited to 60. 

     To guarantee your place email us: [masked] 

      before Canada Day, July 1

     Include your name and the number in your party.

Bring your camera and wear your most patriotic clothes for a personal photo-op with Barack and Michelle (well, life-size 2-dimensional cut outs). 

And we’re also offering a Raffle Prize!  We have two copies of the Democrats Abroad 50th Anniversary Commemorative Album.  Published by the DA, this wonderful book highlights the history of Democrats Abroad from its founding to present day; 72 pages, 50 years of history, chock full of photos and in full color.

All proceeds go to funding our Get Out The Vote effort in 2014.  Raffle tickets are $5.00 each.  Chances are our event will sell out – which means you’ll have a 1 in 30 chance to win!


Members of your Executive Committee will be available to help you register to vote for the all-important 2014 Mid-Term Elections this November.  So even if you can’t join us for the pub evening, you’re welcomed to drop in and let us help you request your absentee ballot.


Some of you have expressed an interest in helping out at our events. Here’s your chance: 

·  We need a Photographer to bring a camera and document our event for the Democrats Abroad webpage.

·  We also need an experienced Sound Person to keep track of the music, or even better, put together a mix of upbeat Americana folk, rock, pop and instrumentals for the evening. 

Email [masked], with July 4th Volunteer in the subject line.

The evening should be fun and joyful. The upcoming Mid-Term election is crucial to our democracy.  But let’s enjoy the 4th of July as the uniquely American celebration it is!

Hope you can join us!

Your 4th of July Planning Committee,

Diana Shnider

    So sorry to bail; just back from a trip and picked up a bug while I was away.

    Sorry you and the family can't make it Peter. Perhaps some other time, or maybe a lunch. I'm still waiting for you to come trick or treating in my neighborhood!
