The Volusia County Democratic Party plans a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to commemorate the grand opening of the party's new office in Downtown DeLand.
The event will take place at 6 p.m. today, Wednesday, April 17, upstairs in the historic Conrad Building at 112 W. New York Ave., Suite 212. Wine and cheese will be served.
“The Volusia County Democratic Party is poised to engage new members in the elections process, educate our community about the Democratic Party’s platform, and excel at electing Democrats from local to national levels,” said Volusia County Democratic Party Chairman Vonzelle Johnson. “Our new office will be open year-round to serve as a hub for administration, research, meetings, trainings, outreach, and many other critical functions that help us win elections.”
The ribbon-cutting, which is open to the public, will feature many local elected officials and other community leaders. Attendees are encouraged to bring friends and family to commemorate the occasion.
Parking will be available along New York Avenue and Woodland Boulevard, as well as on the Artisan Alley courtyard behind the Conrad Building and in several public parking lots within one block from the office.
“To our knowledge, this is the first time in our county’s history that any political organization has opened a permanent office in Volusia County,” Kevin Winchell, the party’s treasurer, said. “It represents a major investment in our party's future here in Volusia County.”
RSVPs are requested by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the party’s office at (386) 624-6921. People who cannot attend the event but who wish to make a contribution can make a secure donation online at www.volusiademocraticparty.org or by sending a check (payable to “Volusia County Democratic Party”) to PO Box 771, DeLand, FL 32721.
