Hello Friends–

We so enjoyed Mayors Kathleen Mulcahy, Peter Sartorius, and Jesse Warren last month that we’re Zooming once again on Saturday morning, August 1, 10:00–11:00, but this time with Skyler Johnson.

Mr. Johnson, one of the four Democratic candidates in the recent primary for NYS Senate, will speak on Lessons Learned: Reflections from a Newcomer to Politics.

While not victorious in achieving the Senate seat, ­– congratulations to Laura Ahearn – for Skyler, like senatorial candidates Tommy John Schiavoni and Valerie Cartright, being on the slate is sufficient cause for celebration.

Skyler was one of the younger candidates on the ballot in June. On August 1, hear the 20-year-old reflect on his experiences in the political limelight and what the future holds for him.

To register for the meeting to receive the Zoom link, please email Joy Flynn at shdemclub@gmail.com or call 631-470-6121. Only those pre-registered may participate in the meeting.

Congratulations are also due to Dr. Nancy Goroff, our newly elected Democratic District I Congressional candidate. I’m sure you’ll join me in thanking the other Democratic primary candidates in the race, Perry Gershon and Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming, for representing the East End so professionally during this powerhouse of a campaign.

Black Lives Matter. Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor hosted a webinar on June 22, 2020, titled Racial Injustice moderated by Rabbi Dan Geffin with guests Unitarian Universalist Reverend Kimberly Q. Johnson and Dr. James “Love” Banks. Click here to hear this very important and informative talk.

On Monday, July 27, the Temple had the second in this series sponsored by their Social Justice Committee, titled History of the Black Community on the East End. A recording will be available shortly for those who missed it.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 12, at 10:00 AM for a Club breakfast meeting with Nancy Goroff. It may be on Zoom or it may be socially distanced at a restaurant outdoors, but we’ll all learn from Dr. Goroff how to beat Lee Zeldin!

There is no charge for our virtual breakfasts but the Club continues delivering weekly supplies to the families and organizations we are supporting during the pandemic. Your donations are always welcome at www.shdemclub.com.

See you on August 1 with Skyler Johnson!

Joy Flynn, Club President
