Gerrymander Bash

The LWVODC Redistricting Reform Team is hosting a Gerrymander Bash, Saturday afternoon November 16, 2019,  at the Chapel Hill Community Center, 120 S. Estes Drive.   It will be a fun, family-oriented, open-house style event filled with children’s activities, entertainment, education and food [think gerrymandered pizza ... why do you have more pepperoni than I do?].  

Our plan is to set up stations around the gym and allow the community to participate in several activities.  Films/presentations and food will be in an adjacent smaller room. We have the venue from 1:00-5:00 to allow for time to setup before and tear down afterwards.  The activities will run from 2:00-4:00.

Planning has been underway ... we still need help especially in two areas:  (1) Operation of the various Children’s Activities [Fishing, Bean Bag Toss, etc.]   (2) Spreading the Word to your neighborhood, friends etc. 

We need your help!  Please sign-up to work on one or more of the teams to handle preparation for and operation of the event.
