2017 Barbecue and Fundraiser
If you weren’t able to attend the Chaffee County Democrats Barbecue, we had a great turnout – standing room only! Elaine Allemang provided a spread of excellent barbecue and sides. More than a dozen elected officials and candidates for office at the local, state and federal level attended. The talented members of Blue Recluse Trio provided great music. And we raised some much-needed funds to support democratic candidates and values in upcoming elections while having a great time! The energy was palpable and positive. Go Dems!
