Join the Livingston County Democrats for some fun fall activities

The Livingston County Democratic Party has a full slate of events set for this fall to help them raise some much needed funds and for people who hold similar views to get together, talk and enjoy each other’s company while having some fun.

“An Evening at the Opera house” is set for 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Howell Opera House. The after-work gathering will feature food and beverages, and a donation will be accepted at the door. It’s worth the price of admission just to see what the Livingston Arts Council has done with the opera house built in 1880 at the corner of Grand River Avenue and Walnut Street. (Update-the date has ben changed to Sept. 12, and the the Tree Town Quintet has been booked to play jazz.)

On Sept. 9 a small handful of the party faithful get together to clean the section of M-59 they have adopted of trash. Everyone is more than welcome, and the motto for all of our volunteer activities is “many hands make light work.” Meet at 8 a.m. at the Ironwood Golf Course, 6900 E. Highland Rd. Howell, located between Howell and Hartland.

On Sept. 22 join the party members for a bus trip to Casino Windsor for some fun and gamming. The trip will cost $20, and it includes $15 in coupons from the casino.

The fun continues the next day from noon to 4 p.m. on Sept. 23 at a fall “Brat-Fest” at the Huron Meadows Metropark in Brighton Township. A $10 donation is suggested for individuals and $25 for a family, and you only need to bring your own beverages, including beer and wine. The 1,540-acre park features a golf course, fishing, boat rentals, trails and other amenities. RSVP is required.

The fall activities conclude with an evening of music, dancing and refreshments at 7 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Whispering Pines Golf Club, 2500 Whispering Pines Dr. in Pinckney. Mark Brewer, chair of the Michigan Democratic Party, will be the special guest.
