Dems film night set for June 7


“A joyous experience  that appeals to our better natures!”

We're so pleased that for this year's annual Movie Night fund-raiser your Benzie Democrats are presenting a memorable evening of food, drink, soul music, and the first-ever local showing of the joyous, new Aretha Franklin movie, “Amazing Grace”—an epic film rescued from 1972, that as its title song says, really was “lost, but now is found."

Since its release last month, the reviews have been nothing less than incandescent...but if you love Aretha's singing like we do, that's kinda a no-brainer!

It all happens at The Garden Theater
Friday, June 7, starting at 5:30 p.m.

We'll have more information soon, but wanted to get this on your dance card right away. Tell your friends, and start making plans for a fine night of good food, good people, good times, and soulful inspiration—all benefiting your Benzie Dems!

Join Us May 18

Dan Scripps is coming to town!


We've got a fine meeting all lined up for this Saturday, May 18, at 9:30 a.m., at Headquarters!

There will be coffee; there will be home-baked goods; there will be warm reunions with some of our favorite snow birds, just spotted flying back into town for another fine Benzie summer.
But we've also got Dan Scripps coming our way, and he's bringing some really good news. Our once-upon-a-time, wonderful state representative, tireless advocate for Michigan's water, and founder of the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council, has a truly awesome new title: Michigan Public Service Commissioner!

Like, WOW! That means he's one of just three people overseeing regulation of Michigan's utilities--especially our electricity providers, who are key to combatting climate change.
