Join Us for our annual Dinner Celebration....Help us Honor John Reed
Kennedy Legacy Dinner 2023

In addition to getting to mingle and connect with old friends and political compatriots, we will be honoring John Reed, a longtime member who passed earlier this year (obit). The General Membership of CIDC unanimously voted to name the Community Service Award in his honor. Jeni Wheeler will be presented with the first John L. Reed Community Service Award for her work in the foundation of the Family Table Collaborative in Yarmouth, John's own town. The collaborative has played an important role in the past few years in providing for food security on the Cape.

The annual Democrat of the Year award will be presented to Carla Cooper of Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard for her work in coordinating the exemplary voter turnout on the Island. We will also hear and celebrate our successes of last fall's campaign and hear the future work that lays ahead with new leadership here on the cape and in Boston. 
The dinner will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at the Resort and Conference Center (35 Scudder Ave., Hyannis).

Check in for the dinner will begin at 5:30 with the VIP Reception and Cocktail with elected officials at 6:00. The buffet dinner will begin at 6:30.
We are excited to build on the great success of last year's dinner and the amazing results on the Cape and Islands during last year's 2022 mid-term elections. We need your help to keep the momentum going by participating in this year's dinner and the ongoing work to support electing our Democratic Candidates on the Cape and Islands.
