Join Greater Tehachapi Democrats at the Democratic BBQ Picnic at Aviator Park at the Tehachapi Airport on Saturday, Aug. 5, from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

The political environment indicates an extremely favorable outcome for Democrats in 2018. Local Democrats have a realistic chance of seeing Democrat Robert Owen, who is running for Congress, win the election for the U.S. House of Representatives. For further information, see RobertOwenforCongress.com.

The picnic is pet- and child-friendly. Barbecue chicken and tri-tip roast will be provided. The picnic is potluck-style. Email Ginny Tunks at vtunks@earthlink.net to RSVP and let her know what side dish, beverage or dessert you’d like to bring. Also, please bring a folding chair.

To reach the park, enter the airport off Green Street at the open gate.

This event is hosted by The Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club. To sign up for e-news from the Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club, go to tehachapidems.org.

Ginny Tunks is the president of the Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club.
