The Knox County Democratic Committee will continue its custom of meeting on the second Tuesday of the month on Oct. 8.

At 6 p.m. there will be a potluck supper for those who wish to bring something to share. A microwave is available. The business meeting will begin at 7 p.m., and it is open to all Democrats registered to vote in Knox County. The meeting will adjourn by 9 p.m.

Among other preparations for the 2014 election season, members will elect two Knox Democrats to represent Knox County on the committee that will write the Democratic Platform to be adopted at the Democratic State Convention next spring. Any Democrats interested in being part of the Platform Committee should make their interest known to the chairman and plan to attend the Oct. 8 meeting. In coming months, the county committee will set aside time at monthly meetings for discussion of platform issues.

The Knox County Democrats meet at Stella Maris House, 148 Broadway in Rockland at the intersection with Route 1. Stella Maris has on-site parking and is accessible to the handicapped. For more information, please contact Chairman Adrian Humphreys at 763-4691 or or visit
