Have we Got A Summer for YOU!

The hot Arizona Summer is just around the corner and so are three excellent programs for Sun City. Mark your calendars for every first Thursday (6pm at Fairway) as each program promises to be relevant to our goals and very informational.

May is Spring Fling BUT no tickets may be sold at the door. Regretfully, we have to order the amount of food that covers our pre-purchase ticket holders. We will miss you at this event if you could not make it. See you at coffee or at the other wonderful meetings this summer!


Bill Bercu from LD21 will talk with us on how we can maximize our efforts. There are many overlaps in membership and support efforts with LD21. Yet, each group has parameters within the other may not operate. Let's learn how to work together efficiently.

Bill Bercu will bring his extensive abilities and knowledge to the table at this meeting.

Learn how to help each other towards common goals of getting Democrats on the ballot and electing them!


Author Jeff Gibbs, "Planning and Development in the Desert SW," who lives locally will bring his extensive Climate Change knowledge to our group.

Jeff Gibbs has a highly regarded background in regional planning and is a regular contributor to the Arizona Republic on the subject. His book is for sale on


Americans NEED the Arts. Bernadette Mills, the Executive Director of the West Valley Arts Council, will draw the direct line from supporting the arts to the economic development of an area and a country.

Arts are just one of the many programs that the Republicans are planning on cutting. We know that the arts are important and this program will place specific facts and figures for our use on the subject.


ICE CREAM SOCIAL is in our Fall Program Schedule!

Hostesses and snacks are ALWAYS welcome. Please contact the men and women in the kitchen at the meetings and ask how YOU may help.

Calling Good Democrats

We are beginning the process of choosing the candidates for office in the Sun City Democratic Club. The names of those nominated will be voted on in November, which sounds like a long time away. The problem is that we need to have names to recommend by September. So, if you are interested in holding an office in the club or want to serve on one of the committees, please let Shirley McAllister know. She is chair of the nominating committee. I hope several people will let me know how they would like to help our growing and exciting club.

Coffee & Networking

The Sun City Democrats network EVERY Monday at the Starbucks on 99th Avenue and Bell beginning at 9am.

This is where you will learn about various RESIST groups, busses to rallies, and all other things of interest to a Sun City Democrat.

See you there!

Spring Fling is our May Meeting.... YOU MUST HAVE PRE-PURCHASED TICKETS. See you Thursday, May 4th at 6pm at Fairway.
