Each year the city of Oak Ridge hosts the “Secret City Festival” at the civic center and surrounding area. This year it took place on Friday June 12th and Saturday June 13th. This is a celebration of the rich history of the town dating back to World War Two. In addition to war reenactments and concerts, there are many booths set up by a cornucopia of organizations.
The Anderson County Democratic Party joined in the celebration and set up a booth at the Secret City festival. It was manned both days, all day, by volunteers with the party. At our booth we had buttons and bumper stickers for sale, candy for the children, information about Democratic Party values, and an opportunity to register to vote. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the party and look for ways to get involved. Indeed, we did have many people stop by and ask about us. Some of these folks even wanted to get to know us better while staying involved. As such, they signed up for our email mailing list to learn about the happenings of the party.
It was a great, successful couple of days! We have much work ahead of us. That’s why it’s so good we have such dedicated people in Anderson County to help move the values of the Democratic Party forward on the local level. Keep up the good work everyone!
