MoveOn Whidbey and Island County Democrats invite interested progressives to socialize and share thoughts about 9/11.
The informal party is from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11.
“It’s sort of a no-agenda gathering,” said organizer and MoveOn member Carolyn Tamler.
Attendees are invited to bring a finger food to share and a beverage to drink. Organizers also recommend bringing a blanket and a chair for the lawn at a private home in Langley. Musicians who want to sing a peaceful song are encouraged to bring their guitars and perform.
Anyone may attend, whether or not they are members of either group. Tamler said the hosts would like to know how many guests to expect and prepare for, and asks attendees to RSVP by emailing her at email@example.com or calling her at 222-6820.
Tamler said 20 guests replied by Wednesday. One MoveOn member said she wants more people at the event.
“I’m hoping for as many participants as possible,” said Carol Krez.
Though the event has no structured speakers or itinerary, Krez highlighted Marshall Goldberg as another interesting MoveOn member. Goldberg is also a listed local contact for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a group that petitions for an independent investigation of the World Trade Center destruction.
