WELCOME to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY of CARROLL COUNTY, AR!
We'll be kicking off our 2021 activities at an open-air event: The Arkansas State Chili Cookoff! Come see us this Saturday the 24th at the Holiday Island Golf Club, where we'll be serving up our Tutu Good Chili for judges and attendees.
Although seeing our Tutu Team in action is a good reason to attend - we just want to SEE everyone and catch up! We'll also have voter registration forms available.
The tasting portion of the event runs from 12:30 - 4 pm, but vendors and other booths will be open from 10 - 4. A craft fair and flea market is planned by the organizers, with food and beverages available.
Listen for the dance music and hop, swing, leap, or sashay over to our booth!
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.
