ZOOM TUTORIAL MEETING
JUST FOR DEMS
THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 10:30 AM
Last week we had our first Democratic Club SOB virtual meeting. We were very pleased with the outcome. Our speaker was able to make an uninterrupted presentation and club members were able to ask questions and fully participate in the meeting. We believe this is our best option to meet under current circumstances.
Some people did have trouble accessing the meeting. Recognizing this is new technology for most of us, we want to work with our members to remove barriers for as many people as possible. These options are available for you.
Jolyn Bowler (email@example.com) is our Zoom expert and she is more than willing to give you individual help to set up Zoom and answer your questions. Please send her an email and note it is in reference to the SoB meeting in the subject line.
We have scheduled up a Zoom Tutorial on Thursday, June 4, at 10:00 am. This is an open forum for those new to Zoom. Jolyn will walk you through Zoom functions. You will be able to see how Zoom meetings work and ask questions. There is no fee to attend but, for security reasons, you must register. Click the button below to register now.
VIRTUAL SPEAKER LUNCHEON

COVID-19: FACTS, ASPIRATIONS AND PREDICTING THE FUTURE
Patrick Snowman, MD
Join us for the Democratic Club SOB Virtual Speaker Luncheon on June 9th. We have decided to use Zoom for our monthly luncheon meetings. This way we will be able to see and hear our presenter and then open the "floor" for questions.
There is no charge, but you must register for security reasons. Click on the button below to register. The day before the meeting you will receive an email containing the link that will give you access to the meeting.
Patrick Snowman, MD will briefly summarize the current facts about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes (COVID-19). This objective data will be compared with aspirations and assumptions. Computer models that attempt to predict the future rely on both types of information and feed directly into decisions about healthcare delivery and guidance on social behavior and safely re-opening our society.

The SOB Democratic Club will not open a local campaign office until we have a Democratic Candidate for President. Until then, we encourage you to contact the campaigns for Jaime Harrison, for the US Senate and Joe Cunningham for US House for volunteer opportunities.
DINING WITH DEMS
WE NEED HOSTS!
We need to start fundraising now for 2020! Dining With Dems is a lot of fun and a very important piece of our fundraising. You can help by volunteering to host a Dining With Dems event at your home. If you are interested, please contact Sally Nicastre at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We would really love to host some of these events in Bluffton. If you are one of our Bluffton supporters, we hope you will consider volunteering.
The Beaufort County Politics page includes maps of all relevant electoral districts in Beaufort County as well as a list of all incumbents in most elected positions in the County.
Several months before each election, the League of Women Voters website, VOTE411.COM, assembles excellent information about all candidates in national and local elections. You can compare the candidates' positions on a variety of issues and build a personalized sample ballot.
LOWCOUNTRY LIBERALS SUMMIT
The Democratic Club SOB is a member of the Lowcountry Liberals Summit, a coalition of fourteen local liberal organizations. It is a way for liberal-leaning organizations to meet, get to know one another personally, exchange ideas and seek ways to be involved in mutual areas of interest, activities and action. This summit group has significantly enhanced communication, information sharing and cooperative efforts for action, protests, elections, issues awareness and other outcomes.
One of the many benefits is a combined calendar of events of all liberal events in the area. To see this calendar, go to lowcountryliberals.com
