PRESENT OUR FIRST “BACK TO REAL LIFE” LUNCHEON

Saturday afternoon, August 7

12:00 – 1:30 pm at Marina Jacks

Reservations are Required. Please RSVP Below
https://rsvpaug7.app.rsvpify.com/

Join these two dynamic organizations – and like-minded Democratic friends and neighbors -- when we come back together in person since the COVID social distancing rules have been relaxed for this special co-hosted event.

Hear from local Democratic leaders and our featured speaker, retired petroleum engineer turned environmental activist Bob Paredi to discuss the present and the future of oil drilling in the Gulf: what’s been learned, what’s been done, and what still needs to be done to prevent a devastating accident such as Deepwater Horizon from ever happening again.

A student of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Paredi received his engineering degree from UC Berkeley and spent much of his career among the oil derricks of Venezuela. He traveled the world on behalf of his employer, EXXON-Mobil, but then became an outspoken activist and author, studying lobbying and policy priorities of the oil and gas industries.

Reservations and entrée selection must be made no later than Tuesday, August 3. Please let us know if you are a member of the Democratic Club or the Environmental Caucus.

If you have any issues making your reservation through this link, please leave a message at[masked] or send an e-mail to [masked]

Yours in Blue & Green

Covid Conscious Homeschool Play Dates Manasota

Online event

This is ongoing. Posted here just cuz it had to go somewhere.

Hi folks - this a a group of moms who are organizing events and playdates. Parents organized on the Left Leaning, Liberal and Progressive Facebook group. This may be a grassroots answer for your kids and you. It's just forming so nothing established yet. After answering questions and joining you can suggest some safe gatherings if you wish.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/341138117626557/

From the page:
This group was created for COVID conscious homeschoolers to connect during this trying season.

Many of us endured homeschooling alone, and are hoping to connect with other families who can relate.
This group is not a co-op, so no membership fees or class tuition. Just play dates for our kids and families to connect with others who are taking this pandemic seriously.
