Progressive Cheverly Monthly Forums

Thursday, September 6 -- Join us as we resume our monthly forums. The November elections are just two months away. If you are distressed about the current state of affairs following the 2016 Presidential election, change will not occur on its own. It requires the dedicated efforts - large and small - of many, many people. Come learn how you can help as we focus on electoral changes. We will be discussing various options for direct involvement. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be provided. 7:00 pm, Hoyer Education Center (cafeteria), 2300 Belleview Ave. (Parking Available), Cheverly
