What Are You Doing Tomorrow?
Got plans for tomorrow? What, you don’t? Well boy do I have a rockin good time for you!
Heck, even if you do have plans, once you see this itinerary of Young Dem events and activities, you will surely break your plans for a fun filled day of electioneering and partying
So this is how the day will go....
11am - 1pm - Canvassing with the Young Dems of Atlanta up in District 48 for Jan Hackney There are 3 things you need to know about canvassing. They are:
1) Canvassing doesn’t suck, in fact its kind of fun! I know you are looking at that statement, and you don’t believe me. But its really true. For a long time I was one of those "Ugh, canvassing.....I don’t think so". I used every excuse I could come up with to get out of it....and then I ran out of excuses. After two weekends of canvassing, I'm sold. Canvassing doesn’t suck. Its pretty neat to go out and talk to people. Plus the weather is supposed to be gorgeous tomorrow. Spend a couple of hours out in the sunshine!
2) You get a super awesome beer glass and some beer in it at our Business meetings. Beer Glass - awesome! Beer in Glass - EVEN MORE AWESOME
3) How do you get there? You saw points one and two. You are on board. Here are the details for canvassing:
