WELCOME to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY of CARROLL COUNTY, AR!
Drinks With Dems
Eureka Live Patio
35 N. Main
Mark your calendar for an evening of drinks and conversation with like-minded folks! Drinks with Dems is planned for Thursday, October 14, 5-7pm, on the patio of Eureka Live, 35 North Main, Eureka Springs.
Your $20 admission ticket will provide financial support for Democratic candidates, one drink of your choice, and one ticket for the evening's $100 raffle (must be present to win). The Eureka Live bar and patio grill will be open for your purchase of additional drinks and munchies.
All Carroll County Democrats are invited to attend. Bring your friends, and help us expand the county party.
As Democrats, we are concerned with everyone's health, plus we have a challenge opportunity! A member of Carroll County Democrats will contribute $1 for every Covid vaccination card, or photo of Covid vaccination card, shown at the entrance to Drinks with Dems. Help us earn that challenge!
Democratic Volunteers Help with COVID Vaccinations
Smith Drugs, ECHO Clinic, and volunteers from the Democratic Party of Carroll County have teamed up to help in the delivery of the COVID 19 Moderna vaccine here in Carroll County.
Under the direction of Suzie Bell and Dr. Dan Bell, the group has delivered over 1,370 first shots of the vaccine to those who have signed up through Smith Drugs in Eureka Springs. The group has been delivering between 200 and 400 shots per week.
Now with the eligibility criteria being expanded, it is expected that the workload will also expand.
A drive-through venue and a large team of volunteers on the telephone and administrating the shots have provided this effort a lead in Carroll County. Of the current 4,053 first-time shots provided in Carroll County, this group of volunteers has stepped up and provided over 1/3 of the county shots. There are 5 other venues that also provide COVID vaccinations throughout the county.
We are not celebrating yet, as Carroll County is behind (only 18% of the county has received a first shot) some of the leading counties in Arkansas that have over a 25% first vaccination rate. With the continued efforts of this team, we will continue to provide the needed community support.
Kudos to all of the volunteers, staff, and personnel who have made this a continuing success. Another example of Democrats are working hard to ensure the health of all of Carroll county.
