Hey all you 33rd Dems, let’s show our spirit at the Burien 4th of July Parade this Saturday! While 2009 is not a huge election year, we still have important races and issues that need our support and enthusiasm; County Executive, County Assessor, Port Commission, local races, as well as critical issues facing our state and nation; like Health Care, Education, the Environment, etc.
Sooo, on Saturday, July 4th, we will be lining up with the 34th and 11th Dems, Senator Keiser, Reps Upthegrove and Orwall, and our endorsed candidates to celebrate this great country.
So, meet up with us on 8th Ave SW between 149th and 151st (just east of Ambaum Blvd) starting at 2:30 pm. The parade begins at 3:30, follows a circuit route and ends up back about where we will be parked. Immediately after the parade, Dave Upthegrove’s family is graciously hosting their annual barbeque at their family home on Lake Burien (1808 SW 156th) where the beer and soda will be icy, and the hamburgers and veggie burgers hot and juicy. This is always a fun time to meet and greet fellow dems, candidates, and our electeds.
Now, for the details: Parking is available at the Municipal lot at 634 SW 151st, as well as the mish-mash of lots that serve several small business buildings. Please be considerate and don’t park immediately adjacent to a business that is open that day.
I will have 33rd t-shirts, hats, and signs supporting various issues. Please plan to wear the shirts and hats at future events — and I will bring the signs back to those future events, as well. You are also welcome to carry signs for your favorite candidate (provided by said candidate!).
Let’s show the City of Burien and our fellow Dems what an enthusiastic crowd we can be. So, suit up and show up before the fireworks blow up!!
