On Tuesday, August 20, 13 volunteers braved the hailstorm and torrential rain to gather in the upstairs room at Mr. Henry's and write a stack of postcards to voters in Virginia supporting the candidacy of Sheila Bynum-Coleman (the Democratic challenger for VA HD-66).
We enjoyed good food, good conversation, and tasty adult beverages, too.
We estimate that we wrote about 150 postcards in just over an hour. We would've done more, but we ran out of postcards (we won't make that mistake again).
(That is still an impressive amount of postcards.)
On Thursday, August 22, Elizabeth Engel, our second VP, had the opportunity to attend a fundraiser for Ms. Bynum-Coleman in a private home in Near Northeast and present the Ward 6 Dems postcards directly to the candidate.
(She was pretty excited, and not just because they also raised a lot of money that night.)
