2015 -- DWCUP'S 75th Anniversary Year!
by Donna Dennis, President
DWCUP, the oldest established women's democratic club in the country, will celebrate its birthday on September 8, 2015 -- and we are as vibrant and vital as ever!
Our January 2015 membership meeting featured USF's political science Professor Susan MacManus, who gave us her take on political trends in Florida. Read this overview of Prof. MacManus' positions and background -- it has a terrific photograph and details why she is such an exciting speaker on politics. Two interesting tidbits were the increasing number of voters registered as independents and that younger voters find appealing candidates who break glass ceilings (do I hear "Hillary"?).
Our club is busy preparing for Tally Days, when all clubs embraced by the Democratic Women's Club of Florida (DWCF) send members to Tallahassee to speak to our legislators. This March event was founded by our own lifetime member and former DWCF president Janet Goen.
We are also preparing for 2016, not just for the presidential elections but for the DWCF state convention which will be held in our county in September, 2016 -- that effort is headed by our own Mary Freeman. Exciting plans are afoot!
Please join us for our February meeting to be held on Monday, February 23 at 11:30am. Note that the meeting location is 2165 Sunnydale Blvd, Suite M, Clearwater. The green arrow marks the location -- it is just west of Belcher, which is identified as Route 501 (click on the map to enlarge it).
Please park in the Queen's Pizza parking lot on Belcher on the north side of Sunnydale Blvd. We will carpool attendees over to the Sunnydale meeting location. We thank CWA 3179 the use of your space! All are welcome. We have great speakers and are great lunch companions. Lunch is $5.
