2019 Recap and A Look Ahead to 2020

Democratic Women of Catawba County

P.O. Box 1201

Conover, NC 28613

Dear Dem Women, Jan. 2, 2020

What a year! Democratic Women of Catawba County stayed very busy fundraising for 2020 candidates. This letter will recap those events as well as take a look ahead into 2020.

While preparing this letter, I took a look back at previous yearly recap letters written by former DWCC President Lynn Dorfman. The 2016 letter stood out as she stated, “We've come quite a way from eight founding members in March 2014 to 38 active and engaged members today.” Such a true statement! DWCC has grown to approximately 70 members in 2019. Let’s continue to spread the word and grow our membership this year. Dues are paid once a year and start over each January. You can pay 2020 dues online at and use the “Become a Member” link.

Do you remember how you felt on the evening of November 8, 2016? It’s been three years and a LOT has happened. THIS IS OUR TIME. THIS IS OUR YEAR. Let’s put forth the effort to do all we can to elect Democrats at the local, state, and federal levels. There will be numerous opportunities to volunteer to work at DWCC and CCDP events, on candidate campaigns, writing Letters to the Editor as well as to voters, working the polls, knocking on doors, etc. WE CAN DO IT!
