The annual Chaffee County Democrats Barbecue and Fundraiser will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at Poncha Springs Town Hall and Chipeta Park, 330 Burnett Ave., Poncha Springs. A suggested donation of $25 will be collected at the event, so there’s no need to purchase tickets, just show up and have a great time!
In addition to homemade barbecue and a sundae bar, enjoy music by Blue Recluse Trio, a talented local blues-rock band featuring the amazing vocals of Shawntel Royale. We will also have door prizes, a raffle, and beer and wine. (A vegetarian meal option will also be available.)
Special guests for the event include Lt. Governor Donna Lynne; Sen. Kerry Donovan; gubernatorial candidates Noel Ginsburg and Carey Kennedy; attorney general candidates Joe Salazar, Michael Dougherty and Brad Levin; U.S. Senate candidate Dustin Leitzel; state treasurer candidate Steve Lebsock; District 5 congressional candidate Betty Field; Chaffee County Commissioner Keith Baker; Chaffee County Clerk Lori Mitchell; Salida City Councilwoman Cheryl Brown-Kovacic; and Salida City Council candidates Dan Shore and Harald Kasper.
This is a family-friendly event, and kids will be able to play in Chipeta Park. A limited number of chairs are available, so please bring camp chairs or lawn chairs if you have them. There’s plenty of parking, and afterward, you’re practically at the fairgrounds where you can enjoy the final weekend of the Chaffee County Fair and Rodeo. So join us in Poncha Springs for a great time Saturday, July 29!
