September Cass Dems Meeting

Brainstorming and strategy session to implement our 2020 campaign plan. Bring your ideas!

Also, bring SHOES! Please comb through your closets and bring all your new or gently worn shoes to the meeting. What is gently worn? Anything that doesn't have holes where it shouldn't have. Bring your boxes and bags..you can only wear one pair at a time anyway!

See you Thursday night, the 26th!

Crossroads UMC is collecting shoes; funds received from the shoes will go to fund their Back Snack program for Gladden Elementary in Belton. The shoes will go to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries so they can have the income to feed and school their families.
