Attendance at our annual Eaton County Democrats in Action dinner was up by 50% compared to last year, reflecting the increased interest in political affairs across the country. We were delighted by the response to our appeal from party members; county, state and federal office-holders; and supporting organizations.

Attendees enjoyed chatting with and hearing speeches from Angela Witwer, candidate for MI House of Representatives; Kelly Rossman-McKinney, candidate for MI Senate; and Gretchen Driskell, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives.

Many thanks go to our Dinner Committee, chaired by Amy Robinson and ably assisted by Sa-rah Ferguson, Christine Walker and Linda Appling. Jacky Tennis generously shared her institu-tional memory. Bob Robinson, the Eaton County Treasurer, did a superb job as master of ceremonies.

A big thanks to all who worked so hard to make this event such a great success, and, of course, to all who attended and donated to the cause! THANK YOU!
