• Attend a State of the Union Watch Party

    On Tuesday, people across the nation will come together to watch President Obama’s third State of the Union speech. If you haven’t signed up to attend a watch party, make sure to do so soon

    In Saint Charles, Ben C. has signed up to host a watch party at Rookies All American Pub and Grill because he wanted to show others how easy it was to get involved in their community.

    “Before I started to volunteer, I had no clue how I could possibly help the President’s campaign. Political campaigns seemed like something far off and hard to get involved with. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Just by checking BarackObama.com for volunteer opportunities I found myself in my hometown working with others to help re-elect the President. I realized that if I had no clue about the opportunities to organize in my hometown, then there must be many others just like me out there. By throwing this party I hope to show people that no matter how big politics may seem anyone can make a big difference by getting involved in their own community.”

    Sign up to attend Ben’s party.

    Arnetta S., a volunteer in Hazel Crest, signed up to host a State of the Union watch party because she wanted people in her community to come together to watch President Obama speak about the outstanding things he has accomplished.

    “We as a community need to know what great plans President Obama has for 2012. I hope to get people in my community energized about this campaign and ready to volunteer to become a part of this awesome re-election campaign.”
