2020 Noriega Virtual Picnic and Celebration of Ric Swain
- This event has passed.
Every year, the Jefferson County Democratic Party Labor Advisory Committee hosts the Noriega Picnic. This is the annual picnic where we honor someone that has worked to advance the causes of Labor. The committee this year selected our Labor Brother Ric Swain as our Friend of Labor Award Recipient. As many of you know we lost Ric this year and we could not think of anyone more deserving than Ric to receive this award. Ric was a retired member of UFCW Local 7 and one of the members that was instrumental in starting our Labor Advisory Committee several years ago. Ric worked tirelessly over the years to get Labor friendly, Democratic Candidates elected in Jefferson County.
However, because of Safer-At-Home restrictions, this year we have chosen to take the Noriega Picnic online to make it a celebration in honor of Ric’s contributions to Jefferson County. We encourage you all to put together your picnic lunch and join us for a Zoom based gathering as we present the Friend of Labor Award to Ric’s family.
The zoom picnic celebration will start at 12:00 Noon on June 14, 2020 where a small group will be broadcasting the award presentation from Anderson Park. You can register for the picnic through this act blue link. This annual picnic is the 2nd largest fund raiser for the Jeffco Dems each year, so we encourage you to contribute to help support our efforts to elect labor friendly Democratic Candidates.
