The Barack Obama campaign in Keene will be running canvasses every weekend from now until November out of the Keene office at 305 Park Avenue.

This office is located across from Dube's Tire on Park Ave.

There will be two canvass shifts:
When: Saturdays, at 10:00 am and another at 1:30 pm
Sundays, 12 noon.
Where to meet:
305 Park Avenue

We are attempting to identify all voters in an effort to more effectively target our message to voters.

We are also running phonebanks from the office all day, every day. Barack Obama and John McCain are currently polling at a dead heat in New Hampshire; every personal contact with undecided voters in this state is crucial to our victory.

We need as much as help as we can get!

Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering! My contact information is listed below.

Cheshire County Democrats Book Club

Hello Everyone,

We had a good meeting last week. Everyone enjoyed Three Cups of Tea. It was a good read, full of insights about the Pakistani people, and very inspiring.. There were nine of us at the meeting., so a good turnout for a good book. Panera's turned out to be too loud for the meeting, so we are going else where next month.

For May, we are reading Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World, by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Tracy Kidder. In the NY Times Sunday Book Review, Abraham Verghese said, "Mountains Beyond Mountains is inspiring, disturbing, daring and completely absorbing. It will rattle our complacency; it will prick our conscience." Sounds like just the kind of book we like. Dr. Farmer's work takes him to Haiti, Peru and Cuba, a part of the world that we haven't read much about.

We will meet on Wednesday, May 7th, 6:30 PM at the Food Court at Colony Mill Marketplace. Kay has checked with management at the Food Court and we are welcome and under no obligation to buy anything.

Come and join us as we read our way around the world. I hope to see you there.

New Hampshire State Democratic Platform

There has only been one e-mailed comment thus far from Cheshire County regarding the 2008 Platform.
