    Forum 3 Cafe in Stuttgart, Germany

    "Resistance Summer" Chapter Meeting in Stuttgart

    "If I had eight hours to chop down a tree,
     I’d spend six sharpening my axe."

    - attributed to Abraham Lincoln 

     Our discussion topic of the evening:

    "The Citizen's Toolkit"

    It's not axes we need to sharpen, but now is the time to sharpen those tools of democracy so that we can use them in our fight to win back Washington.

    • What are these tools?
    • What can a citizen do?
    • What can our own DA Stuttgart Chapter do?
    • What are each of us prepared to do?

    Join us in this important discussion and help to decide how we as a chapter can get from where we are now to where we want to be.

    AND

    Since one of our sharpest tools is communication, we will also be participating in a new DNC-inspired world-wide initiative:

    "The Resistance Summer Postcard Action."

    Every single Democrat, in the US and around the globe, is being encouraged to contact legislators over the entire summer on a variety of topics.

    We will provide postcards and address lists of our legislators.
    For a small stamp donation, we will even mail them for you!

    Please do try to join us for snacks, discussion of strategies, and the chance to whip off a few hot postcards to Washington!

    An RSVP would be appreciated

    Eppelheim Grillhütte in Eppelheim, Germany

    Independence Day BBQ

    Independence Day BBQ

     

    Our annual Independence Day BBQ is around the corner! Instead of our usual First Friday meeting, we are meeting on Sunday July 9th at 12:00 at the Grillhütte in Eppelheim . Please join us for a fun afternoon and some interesting activities.

     

    We will have a reading of the Declaration of Independence, one of Angie’s famous Pub Quizzes, and sharing of a few short history-related stories to get us in the mood. In addition, we will have brand new resistence-themed postcards so we can write to our U.S. Representatives about an important issue or several issues if you want (I will have all the contact addresses there). And Finally, get a resistence T-Shirt fresh off the press! Money from T-Shirt purchases will be considered a donation to our chapter. The Grillhütte has a sandbox and plenty of room for kids to play in, so bring the family. There is also an inside area and a covered area in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. And, importantly, there are bathrooms.

     

    Please RSVP me (nancy.schimkat@englishmatters.de) so that we have an idea how many people are coming.

     

    Also, we need to wipe everything down at the end, so if some of you can stay for 20 minutes at the end and help with clean-up, it would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you can do this.

     

    Where: Eppelheim Grillhütte (Am Sportplatz in Eppelheim) Bus 22 from Bismarckplatz will get you 1 Kilometer from the Grillplatz. Let me know if you need a shuttle from there and I’ll give you my mobile number.

     

    When: 12:00

     

    What to bring: Bring a dish to share (eg. salad, dessert), your favorite beverages, and something for the grill. It would be nice if you bring your own dishes, but paper plates and some plastic utensils and cups will be provided as needed.
