After Postcards we stayed for a Progressive Alliance Dinner at the Inconceivable Cafe located in Sanctuary Brewing. It was a fun evening full of fellowship, good conversation, and good food.

The weather was lovely for the approximately twenty participants in our October Silent Vigil for Immigration Reform in front of the Historic Courthouse on Main Street. It is an interesting experience to witness the reactions of passers-by as they read our signs supportng DACA young people and promoting humane and compassionate immigration reform. Although we have some “thumbs down” from people as they pass, the majority of reactions are positive. People shout,“Thank you!” and wave and we participants thank them back. It is a half-hour of high energy for a very worthwhile cause.

On very short notice a rally was organized along 6th Ave. E between King and Main in Hendersonville.   The impetus was the Impeachment Inquiry that the US House of Representatives has begun.   About 20 of us wanted to show our support for the House’s action. Overall there were a lot more thumbs up and honks agreeing with our signs, than thumbs down, nasty comments or extra revving of large pickups.  Both pros and cons are getting more passionate.   Be sure to show your commitment to democracy whenever and however you can.
