ACDC Celebrates November's "Support Our Troops" First Friday
A Reflection by PA Democratic Party Veterans Caucus Vice-Chairman, Moriah Adams
November is the month of Veterans Day and of the holiday of Thanksgiving, which is why this month's First Friday was so appropriately dedicated as "Support Our Troops" and why we as the Adams County Democrats went all out to collect thank you messages, money, and other items needed for those we are honoring, doing all we can with recognition that no one can ever do enough to adequately thank those who have made and are still making such sacrifices for our country.
Democrats of Adams County made it very clear that we support and appreciate those whose lives have involved military service. This is why we had people write personal messages of gratitude and captured them to share with Adams County veterans. This is why we are participating with the Goin' Postal project, collecting money and items to have sent to troops. This is why we are collecting items specific for veterans of all genders who need them to be sent to VA facilities in Pennsylvania. This is why we celebrated this First Friday and will be humbly celebrating Veterans Day on November 11th.

Here's a wholehearted thank you! - To our military service members, veterans, and families.
Tom Wolf Elected Governor
A message from our State Party Chairman, Jim Burn
Tonight, Pennsylvania made the historic decision to change the direction of this Commonwealth.
For the past 4 years, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and many across the State worked tirelessly to call attention to the direction that Governor Corbett was taking the Commonwealth.
Tonight's victory for Tom Wolf is a culmination of those efforts and a testimonial to Mr. Wolf's message, leadership and ability to move our State in a direction that is beneficial to all Pennsylvanians.
Congratulations to all of you for your work and to our next Governor, Tom Wolf.
