General Membership Meeting
Will this be our last virtual meeting? We don't know, but for this month, please join in from the comfort of your home or favorite spot outdoors - it's a ZOOM meeting! (Look to the right for the information.)
Note that it's a slightly different time, as we were accommodating the schedule of our guest speaker. It's 7:00 pm. If you're not familiar with Zoom meetings, allow yourself a little extra time to get logged in. You can even visit the meeting's web address ahead of time, just to make sure you have everything set up on your computer or phone. No one will be there, but it will be like showing up at a physical meeting site a day ahead - just to make sure you have the address right, and give yourself enough time to drive there!
Now - the agenda! We'll be covering the minutes from our last meeting - you can view those here:
If you missed the January meeting, we encourage you to check these out in advance to gain a quick review of DPCC news and views.
Our guest speaker: We are delighted to host Jacob Kaufman, the Political Director for our Democratic Party of Arkansas.
Jacob is an Arkansas native with a background rooted in journalism, primarily covering Arkansas politics. He worked for five years at Arkansas's flagship public radio station and provided reporting to National Public Radio, PBS, BBC Radio, and Arkansas's own Nashville News.
Jacob will provide a wrap-up of legislation actions, as well as a preview of new phone banking capabilities.
We are looking forward to hearing his message and ideas for how we as a party can work with our local candidates to move Arkansas forward.
If you're really missing the sight of your fellow DPCC members and our smiling faces, please make plans to drop by the Chili Cookoff in Holiday Island on SATURDAY APRIL THE 24TH. It will be an OUTDOOR event, where we will be masked up and serving chili - and in it to win it! 🌶More info on that in a separate post!
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.
