Holiday dinner and fundraiser a success

We thank all our dedicated, concerned Christian County Democrats (as well as our friends in Greene County and other nearby counties) for joining us at our annual Christmas Party.

Jim Kabell did a great job of lifting our spirits and engaging us in the future fight. The Cattywampus Band had the room tapping their feet, and our Fremont Hills dinner was a pleasure. Tony Smith accepted the Litton Award for his service to the Christian County Democrats—both the Central Committee and the Democrat Club. Matt Patterson helped us make a bundle of money on our baskets, pies, and other auctioned items.

This event is a fundraiser for the Central Committee, so we are glad we can start off this year with adequate funds And did we mention the fun had by all? Coming together in such difficult times was exhilarating.
