Well, the election is over....finally all of the votes in Florida are counted and the final tally shows that we lost the House, but, not as bad as it could have been. We gained seats in the Senate which hasn't happened in a long time. This is not what we wanted, but, certainly it isn't the worst.
Where do we go from here? Well, raising money for the 29 Palm Marine children is a great start. We did just that at our November Fundraiser. The vendor's wares were hard to pass up; and was great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done. Raffle tickets sold like hotcakes with all of the great prizes and the Silent Auction was a success. Our thanks go out to everyone who helped put this together. The Pavilion at Indian Wells Gold Resort was decorated in a festive holiday setting. And, the icing on the cake was the crooning of Gerald Colucci, who enjoyed singing to a group of people on the RIGHT side.
Things are already heating up for 2020 now that the midterms have passed. It will be interesting as the Democratic hopefuls are plentiful. Many different factions of that party will be clashing to see who the victor will be....from Kamala Harris to Spartacus and Bernie, Uncle Joe, and Warren to Hilary....won't it be fun to watch!!
All we can do is to continue to follow our hearts and values and not give up the fight.
Mary Carter, President
