1) Greetings from the Chair:
As we celebrate love this month, I can’t tell you enough how much I love being a SOUTH COUNTY DEMOCRAT! Beginning last month, our committees have been working hard with moving the club forward. We have an irreplaceable group of dedicated and eager volunteers within our club, that are awesome! It has been amazing to see all the creativity and work getting done! Make sure you attend this month’s meeting, to hear all the wonderful things they have been working on.
As a club, we have decided to host a St. Pat’s Party on Friday, March 15th. The success of this event will really depend on our memberships selling pre-sale tickets. I’m hoping that everyone can at least sell three tickets to the event. Tickets will be available at the February meeting. Come and let’s enjoy a fun filled atmosphere with our fellow democrats!
Powerpoint presentation on fracking: I will begin a discussion at our February meeting with a short Powerpoint presentation about what fraking is and why it is so important to the State of Michigan. Please attend to learn more. We are still working on getting guest speakers to our club. I’m hoping after the state convention, we will have better luck.
On a different note, because we had such a great turn-out at our last meeting, we will hold February’s meeting in the larger room with the microphone set-up. Please don’t forget that our social potluck begins at 6:00 PM and the business meeting at 7:00 PM. See you there!
February’s Raffle Prizes include:
Don’t forget if you bring a possible new member for SCDC, you and your friend will each receive a bonus raffle ticket. The more friends you bring, the more raffle tickets you earn. (PLEASE NOTE: Free bonus raffle tickets given only for someone who’s name we do not have on the SCDC roster.)

The Last Straw: Shell's Rig Runs Aground in Alaska
On January 3, A Shell oil rig loaded with over 150,000 gallons of petroleum products grounded on an island off the coast of Alaska. This is the latest in a series of incidents proving that Shell Oil can't be trusted to drill in America's Arctic.
Tell President Obama to immediately cancel Shell's drilling permits before it's too late:

"The Dow hit 14,000. It hasn't been that high since 2007, heading toward an all-time high. Just think of how big it would be if Obama wasn't such a socialist." –Bill Maher
"In an interview last week, Obama said he loves to shoot skeet up at Camp David. Republicans said if he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of it? Why have we not seen photos of it? Yes, because nothing would ease the Republican mind more than a photo of the black president with a gun." –Bill Maher
"This is the first day of Black History Month; or as Republicans call it, February." –Bill Maher
