The newly organized Silver Dems will meet at 5 p.m. at the Navarro Democratic Party HQ at 416A W. Third Street (one block West of Court House). We will be socializing and munching from plates that you bring so be generous with the sweet treats and wear your best smile. We will soon be approving by-laws and electing officers and committees so your leadership skills will be needed. Come and join the Party! The group’s main purpose is to discuss and protect issues important to folks over 50 years young and educate ourselves on benefits from the government and civilian organizations that are available and earned by Senior Citizens and Veterans.
