The Democratic Club of North Florida’s 16th annual old fashioned picnic and political rally is 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., Saturday, July 16, in the air-conditioned comfort of the Lake Ella American Legion Post, Tallahassee, and will feature a delicious BBQ meal ($10) and drinks, plenty of socializing, old fashioned political stump speeches by candidates and a silent auction. The Hot Tamale duo are returning to provide the entertainment. Star Swain, the woman who gained national attention when she sang the National Anthem at the Lincoln Memorial will sing the National Anthem at the picnic. After the barbeque dinner, Democrats seeking office will each give their 3-minute stump speech.
