The LDCC’s Family Cookout has been a fun, successful, and growing event over the years. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know elected officials and candidates for office while spending time with friends, family, neighbors, and fellow Democrats.

Traditional cookout fare of hot dogs, hamburgers, and various salads will be served. The Lynn Democratic City Committee again will hold its annual dessert contest, with prizes awarded for the best homemade desserts.

In addition, and as part of the its ongoing Community Service Initiative, the LDCC is pleased to announce that it will be collecting donations of non- perishable food items for its Annual Food Drive. Cookout attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods, pasta, etc. that will be donated to a local Food Pantry. For those who prefer to make monetary contributions, checks made payable to My Brother’s Table will be gratefully accepted.

Donation for the Family Cookout is $15 per person or $25 per family. For more information, please contact LDCC Chair Agnes Ricko at 781-599-9347.
