We sent some of our members down to Norfolk this weekend to participate in the annual convention. We were able to meet other Virginia Democrats, hear amazing speakers and elected Joseph Dennie as our Southside Regional Caucus Chair.
Today at our meeting we hosted Deena Sharuk. She is a lawyer at the legal aid justice center in Charlottesville and it was great to be able to hear about recent changes to immigration law from her!
Many of our members got dressed up in order to attend the annual Restoration Ball. It is a formal ball put on, and all proceeds benefit the Charlottesville Community. We had a blast.
Today we volunteered with Challah for Hunger to help make the dough for their weekly challah sale! It was hard work, but lots of fun!
