We'll See You There-Strafford County Democratic Picnic, Sunday August 26th


            Strafford County Democrats will gather at Millennium Park in Somersworth from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 26, for the party’s annual family picnic, chair Joe Cicirelli has announced. The park is located at 99 Stackpole Rd., between High St. and Green.

            Congressional candidate and former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter will head the list of speakers, Cicirelli said. “This is a 'don't miss' event with candidates and Democrats from throughout Strafford County and statewide rallying in advance of the 2012 election.  Enthusiasm and activity has never been greater and turnout is expected to be high. We invite our friends and neighbors from other counties to join the festivities.”

            Democratic candidates for governor, executive council, state senate, state representative, and county offices have all been invited and will be on hand to speak with constituents.

            In addition to the traditional fare of hamburgers, veggie burgers,  hot dogs, home-made  salads and dessert favorites, this year’s picnic will feature gluten-free and vegan choices.

            The shady park has a large comfortable pavilion, appealing playground equipment, and grassy lawns. It is handicapped accessible.

            Tickets for the event are $12.50 for adults and $25 for families. Sponsors at $50 for two persons will be acknowledged, as well as benefactors at $25 per person.  Reservations can be made by calling Carole Appel, picnic committee chair, 749-7344.
