Herb Green Event 2017

On April 29, 2017 we held our annual Herb Green picnic. The purpose of this event is to honor the late Herb Green who was an influential Gwinnett Democrat and labor leader.   We always have great food, a good speaker and we give out the Herb Green Award to one of the volunteers.  We abide by Herb Green’s wishes that this event should be free an open to all.

This year Democratic Party of Georgia First Vice Chair Nikema Williams joined us and gave a great speech.  Our dedicated volunteer, Claudette Forbes won the Herb Green award.

In addition to great food, we always have an auction to raise money for the party.  Folks bring or buy items to be sold.  This year, State Representative Dewey McClain was our auction MC and he did a wonderful job.

Enjoy the photos below of all the great Democrats who attended the event.
