Reminder: Annual Women’s Luncheon & MDP Legacy Dinner April 30th.

I would like to invite you to join Democratic Women from across Michigan on April 30, 2016, 11:30 AM at the COBO Conference Center for the 30th Annual Women’s Luncheon. We are honored this year to award our Eleanor Roosevelt award to Justice Marilyn Kelly an outstanding Michigan citizen, who has served the Democrat Party and the Michigan Supreme Court with distinction and honor.

Justice Kelly has been a member of the Michigan Democratic Party for over fifty years.  The Party in convention has nominated her six times.  She was elected and has served a total of twenty-five years in office on the State Board of Education, the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court and the Wayne State Board of Governors.

At present, Justice Kelly is serving an eight-year term on the Wayne State Board.  She is also teaching at the Wayne Law School as its Distinguished Jurist in Residence.  She has created a class there in “Access to Justice” aimed at encouraging students upon graduation to serve those not able to afford legal help.  In addition, Justice Kelly has established a scholarship for students committed to working in public service law on graduation.

Come and hear Justice Kelly and other motivating speakers as we prepare to take back the State House and gear up for the Presidential election. We need your support to make this a great Luncheon. Limited seats, so get your tickets as soon as possible. Donation $50.

Democratically yours,

Virgie M Rollins, Luncheon Chair 313 892 6199
