FEDDs "Gather" Virtually for a Happy Hour

April 15th - 6:30 pm on Gather!

Hey, FEDDs near & far - things are heavy these days... Join us to blow off some steam and have a laugh with friends virtually this Thursday!

We're using a virtual event app to "Gather" at a "bar" in cyberspace.

 

Watch this Gather Happy Hour: Pre-Party Explainer created by our very own superman, Chris Meuse.

Here's a Gather cheat sheet to help you.                                          33-second first-time user video tutorial for gather 

When you're ready to join on Thursday, click the Gather Event Link

Then click the Didn't launch? Click here. Or continue in your browser link.

We'll each have an avatar representing us and can visit with friends in different rooms. Even if this makes no sense, join us, if you can on Thursday and we'll giggle our way around and figure it out together.

It's fun to try new things, especially over a cocktail with friends (even if we're online!).

Time for some silly fun, FEDDs!!

FEDDs Lit Stick Social - Sunday April 18th

Where - 9821 Estacado Dr., Dallas, TX 75228-3666
When -  Sunday at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

It's that time again: Lit Sticking Time!!

Join us in Getting Out the Vote (GOTV) for the Dallas Municipal Elections!

This past year, it has become apparent how crucial it is to have strong leadership at the local level (and, well, at the Federal level too - can we get a fist bump for Joe and Kamala?). Our elected officials impact our lives every day - and our safety during crises. Help us ensure everyone gets out to vote in the May 1 election so we have the leadership we need in place. (Early voting is April 19th-27th.)

Join us Sunday, April 18th, for a fun social. Come anytime between 10:00 am - 12:00 pm to FEDD headquarters
(9821 Estacado Dr.) to pick up your turf map and lit sticks (stickies).
You can schedule your turf walk(s) at your convenience.

Email one of our coordinators, based on the area of Dallas you want to Lit Stick:

  • Mike Nelson - Northern FEDDs area (north of the lake, with precincts like 1005, 1044, 2060, 2064, etc.)

  • Mary Leyendecker - Central FEDDs area (west of the lake, with precincts like 1016, 2039, 2072, etc.)

  • Jane Griffin - FEDDs Southern area (east of the lake, with precincts like 1045,1079, 1081, 2065, etc.)

Check the Lit Stick Precincts Map with this link.

Early voting starts April 19th. Until then, we are "lit sticking" the FEDDs area and beyond! If you cannot make it Saturday/Sunday, we are likely holding another lit-stick launch social next weekend on April 17 or 18th. 

 

If weekends don't work for you, email Kristy, Mary, or your precinct organizer for porch pick up of turfs and stickies at anytime. They are ready now!

 

Come grab your turf(s) and 'stickies', have a donut, then head off to lit stick on your own schedule. 

This is a COVID-safe, outdoor, and in-person event. Masks required and please keep some distance.
