The Flathead Democratic Women meet the 4th Monday of every month.
Jessy will speak about the need for food assistance in the Valley -- 400 individuals are served through the North Valley Food Bank pantry and 1 in 3 are under the age of 18. In addition, the North Valley Food Bank supplements programs in Eureka, Browning, and Salvation Army-Kalispell. They also provided roughly 5,000 meals this year through the Summer Meal Program to children in Columbia Falls, Hungry Horse, Martin City, and Coram. Looking to the future, Jessy will also share the vision the Food Bank has for ways it can provide even greater assistance.
This month's meeting will feature a platform presentation on the International Relations planks of the Montana and National Democratic platforms. The talk will be given by Col. Scott Wheeler (Ret.), Vietnam veteran, former professor of US History at West Point, military historian and author, and in retirement a presenter at NATO leadership trainings. Scott has also been a candidate for House District 6 in the Flathead; has served as our Central Committee chairman; and also as Treasurer for the Montana State Democratic Party.
