Greetings Members, Supporters, and Friends of the West Seattle Democratic Women!
Summer is in full swing, and our next meeting will be an evening event, so if our daytime meetings conflict with your work schedules (or even if you come to the daytime meetings), we cordially invite you to make WSDW part of your summer by attending this meeting/social gathering! Since the specialty action work that our organization is currently focused on is Climate Change and Global Warming, this program will consist of the screening of CHASING ICE. This screening aligns with the work that our AEC (Awareness, Education, Climate Action) Committee has been immersed in for the past year-and-a-half; CHASING ICE is a beautifully shot, multiple-award-winning (including from Seattle Int’l Film Festival), critically and popularly acclaimed film that documents how global warming is impacting the planet. Here is the official trailer:
We meet at the West Seattle Golf Course on Thursday, July 27th.
There will not be a Pre-Meeting Discussion led by Theresa McCormick on this evening.
There will not be a Postcard-Writing Campaign on this evening.
Registration begins at 6:00 pm with dinner service beginning at 6:15pm.
CHASING ICE screens at 6:30 pm and runs 75 minutes.
There will be a short discussion after the film, with input from our AEC Committee members as well as from some of our legislators and representatives who would be able to offer some perspective on specific actions we can take to combat the effects of global warming.
Meeting will adjourn no later than 8:30 pm.
Dinner is $15 for WSDW members and $20 for non-members; if you do not want to order dinner, the room charge (which includes dessert and coffee/tea only) is $7.50
If you are involved with an organization, social network, church, or other group with a membership, please spread the word far and wide about this event by forwarding this invitation to any and all of your networks! We are expecting a good turnout and, additionally, I have invited quite a few of our legislators, representatives as well as those seeking office, so that attendees can have the opportunity to find out more about their platforms and the relevant work they are doing in support of the environment!
Please RSVP to me directly by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to indicate if you want to order dinner or just have dessert & coffee/tea. Since we have to arrange the number of food orders with the Golf Course in advance, I must have your RSVP no later than end-of-day, Monday, July 24th to guarantee your meal reservation.
