It’s Picnic Time

You don’t want to miss this year’s picnic on Sunday, July 14. We have changed the time to 4-7 PM with the hope that it will be cooler than mid-day. The picnic is being sponsored by Columbia Democratic Club, Ellicott City & Western Howard Democratic Club and Young Democrats of Howard County. It will be at Alpha Ridge Park, Pavilion 1 (11685 Old Frederick Rd, Marriottsville, MD 21104). Senators Katie Fry Hester (District 9) and Clarence Lam (District 12) will be our speakers.

The clubs will supply the meats (burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers), rolls, condiments, paper products & water. Please bring a side or dessert to share and drinks for yourself & your family. We need volunteers to set up, clean up, grill and work the check in table. We could also use another Charcoal grill if you have a portable one that you don’t mind letting us use for the day. The pavilion is not that big so please bring your own chairs or blankets to sit on. To RSVP & volunteer please complete the Google form. Your RSVP will help us purchase the right amount of food.

I look forward to seeing everyone on July 14, if not before at the Howard County PRIDE celebration on Saturday, June 29 or Senator Fry Hester’s Happy Hour on Tuesday, July 9 (see below for details).

Happy Summer!



Sounds like a fun event…but Marriottsville seems like an odd location for this event. I do not think I have been to Alpha Ridge Park before for an event…so looking forward to seeing how this works out for the various clubs.
