August 7 is the day to head to Morehead City for the Carteret County Young Dems and 3rd Congressional District Summer Rally and Picnic in the Park featuring Senator Kay Hagan and a whole slate of elected officials and candidates. Enjoy music by the Last Chance Wrangler's Band, mingle with friends and rub elbows with North Carolina's political elite...just kidding here. Seriously, Morehead City is beautiful this time of year and this is a great way to end your summer.
You can see the Facebook event here. The rally and picnic are free, but you can always donate to the Carteret County Young Dems, NCDP 3rd Congressional District, Carteret County Democratic Party, or your favorite candidate as a show of appreciation.
From the event page:
The rally will be held at Jaycee Park, South 9th Street, on the Morehead City waterfront. The rally begins at 5:30 and goes until dark. There are a few benches and swings but guests are asked to bring blankets and fold-up chairs for the grassy area.
The grills will be in full swing cooking delicious hot dogs with all the fixings, and of course, there will be chips, soft drinks/water and the Carteret County Democratic Women. are providing desserts!
