Lake Dems Labor (Day Weekend) of Love
Buffalo Grove Days Parade: Lake Dems, Vernon Township Dems, Wheeling Township Dems, our elected Democratic officials, and volunteers joined in the fun at the parade.
Zion Labor Day Parade: A little heat and humidity could never stop Lake Dems, our elected Democratic officials, and volunteers from joining the community of Zion to celebrate the contributions of Labor.

Lake Dems is grateful for our many active volunteers.
Matt Lowry, Chair of Fremont Township Dems, has worked hard to elect Democrats for years.
