Idaho County Democrats

Saturday, Sept. 22, is the date and the Cottonwood Community Hall is the place for a “Soup Line Dinner” and a chance to meet top of the ticket candidates. The theme of this midterm election year dinner, formerly known as the Greencreek dinner, is “The Party of Roosevelt.”

The location is new this year — the Cottonwood Community Hall on King Street, across from Wolftrack Brewing. Festivities will begin at 4 p.m., with a social hour at the Wolftrack Tasting Den, 505 King Street. The Guilty Bystanders will entertain.

Social hour continues a step across King Street to the hall and runs from 5:30 p.m. until dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. Keynote speaker, Rebecca Cleveland-Schroeder, District 4A candidate and party activist, will speak at 7 p.m.

Cleveland-Schroeder was born in Grangeville and raised in Kooskia. She now lives in Coeur d’Alene with her husband and son.

Her website reads, “I am running because I am compelled to stand up for Idahoans that feel neglected by our elected officials. I am compelled to stand up for my child and for yours. I am compelled to stand up for Idahoans that struggle to access healthcare and higher education.”

Cristina McNeil, candidate for U.S. Congress, and Jill Humble, candidate for Idaho Secretary of State, will also attend and update and answer questions about their campaigns. A silent auction and raffle for an Ernie Jennings gong will round out the night.

Call Janice Inghram at 208-983-0616 to reserve a ticket or pay at the door.
