Red Hook Celebrates Hardscrabble Day

Dozens of Democrats March Proudly in Parade

Red Hook Democrats came together in an unprecedented show of solidarity on Hardscrabble Day 2008 with over 60 people walking and riding in the parade. Special thanks to local artist David Levine for his wonderful float and to Norman Greig for providing and driving the tractor.

Walking with us was Democratic Assembly candidate Anne Rubin who also greeted visitors near our table. Democratic State Senate candidate Ken Dow also visited us.

At our table in front of Merritt Books, we gave away free water and had a large selection of stickers featuring local and national candidates and issues. A big thank you to Lorelei Sharkey for providing the facepainting at our special edition double table in front of Merritt Books and to all the other volunteers who helped man our table and assemble and disassemble the materials.

All-in-all the day was a great success.
