Windsor County Democrats to hold bi-annual pasta and politics dinner in Hartland

Saturday, Oct. 13, 5 p.m.—HARTLAND—The Windsor County Democrats Committee will hold its popular Pasta and Politics dinner at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at Damon Hall in Hartland. Special invited guests include: Sen. Patrick Leahy, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Peter Welch, candidate for governor Christine Hallquist, Secretary of State Jim Condos, Treasurer Beth Pearce, Auditor Doug Hoffer, Attorney General TJ Donovan, candidates for Windsor Senate District – Sen. Alison Clarkson, Sen. Dick McCormack, Sen. Alice Nitka – and many Windsor County House candidates.

Nothing can whet one’s appetite for politics like homemade pasta. Democrats throughout Windsor County will gather the bounty from their gardens and area farmers’ markets to make a festive community dinner in support of Vermont Democrat candidates. Homemade dishes such as lasagna, penne pasta, and spaghetti will be served along with sumptuous fresh salads and bread, followed by dessert, all provided by volunteers from the Windsor County Democratic Committee. Suggested donation is $15.

The Stringfield Springers will play their stellar brand of music. Plus, a 50/50 raffle will be held in which 50 percent of the proceeds goes to the winner and 50 percent goes to the committee which supports candidates. The event is a great chance to see and learn more about the 2018 Democrat candidates (and many currently elected officials) running for office this November.
