Picnic in the Park!​

Despite the rainy forecast, sunshine prevailed at our picnic in the park which was a huge success with more than 80 people attending! There was a lot of socializing, which was the main goal!

Guest Speaker David Pepper talked about his latest book, Saving Democracy. He stressed that it is important to have candidates in every race to challenge Republicans. After his talk, David Pepper took questions from the group, and then also signed copies of his book for those who bought them.

Pepper also invited Dr. Amy Acton, former Director of the Ohio Department of Health, and she mingled with the crowd before giving a brief talk.

Peg introduced each of the following:
