Go to our Facebook Page: San Francisco District 11 Democratic Club to view photos.
Our Club just completed the first ever Voter Registration effort at the 25th Annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic sponsored by the Mission Terrace Improvement Association and Roxie Market. To add to the festivities, we also provided photos with Uncle Sam throughout the park. As usual, Roxie Market generously donated an entire picnic BBQ lunch to everyone at the park and a cake to celebrate the United States' 238th Birthday. The Mission Terrace Improvement Association volunteers ran a smooth operation and made sure everyone was fed to satisfaction and the remains were properly divided between waste recycling and compost bins. The SFFD were there with the hook and ladder truck and performed an amazing flag raising ceremony. The classic cars were all there as well. Since this is the 25th event a lot of the logistics have all been worked out, only the weather didn't accommodate and Karl the Fog was out in full force, as is usual in July here. You can tell this party was all locals as everyone was bundled up in their winter coats. All the photos are posted on our Facebook Page, tag yourself and like our page while you are at it.
