We are at the Central WA State Fair this week! Come see us at our booth in the SunDome, on the east side (closest to the rides). Take a selfie with Daisy the Democratic Donkey! We also have buttons, t-shirts, magnets, and candidate literature available.
The Fair is one of our important fundraisers every year that helps us sustain our operations through the fall and winter months. It’s also a great way to be present and visible in the community, share information about our candidates, register voters, and let people know that yes, there ARE Democrats in Yakima!
Fair hours are from noon-10pm Monday-Thursday, noon-11pm on Friday, 11am-11pm on Saturday, and 11am-9pm on Sunday.
Hope to see you there!

Due to the Fair, our September regular meeting will be postponed to NEXT Monday Oct. 3rd at 6pm. We will be in person at the office and on Zoom.
Our office is also closed this week so that we can staff our fair booth. If you need candidate signs, please reply to this email or call 509-452-7197 to make an appointment. We will be back to regular office hours next week.

Your financial support is needed
Like many of our fellow Americans, the Yakima Democrats are basically living “paycheck to paycheck.” Since we are entirely supported by donations, that paycheck is YOU!
We are still in need of about 20 monthly donors at $20 a month to be able to pay our rent, utilities, and other bills. These include things like a Zoom subscription, PO Box fees, and ActBlue fees.
Thank you to everyone who has already made a one time or recurring donation. We are here because of YOU! We just need a few more folks pitching in to close the gap.
Click here to donate via ActBlue, or mail a check to Yakima Democrats, PO Box 121, Yakima WA 98907.
Thank you as always, and we hope to see you at the Fair and upcoming events!
