Demo­cratic Club has new meet­ing lo­ca­tion

Record Observer - - News -

GRA­SONVILLE — Due to in­creased at­ten­dance, the Queen Anne’s County Demo­cratic Club has moved its meet­ing lo­ca­tion to the Gra­sonville Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, 5601 Main Street in Gra­sonville.

The next meet­ing will be held March 2 at 6:30 p.m.; re­fres­ments will be served. The speaker will be Dr. Frank Al­duino, pro­fes­sor of his­tory, win­ner of the NISOD Teach­ing Ex­cel­lence Award, and mem­ber of the Demo­cratic Club.

Al­duino teaches his­tory and po­lit­i­cal science at Anne Arun­del Com­mu­nity Col­lege. He has pub­lished ar­ti­cles on the role of Ital­ian Amer­i­cans dur­ing the Pro­hi­bi­tion Era in Florida, and par­tic­i­pated in the New York His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s “Ital­ians of New York: Five Cen­turies of Strug­gle and Achieve­ment.” In 2007, his ac­count of Ital­ian Amer­i­cans in the Civil War was pub­lished as “Sons of Garibaldi in Blue and Gray: Ital­ians in the Amer­i­can Civil War.” Al­duino’s ac­count of the tri­als of one eth­nic group en­ter­ing the United States dur­ing a time of great stress could hold lessons on the chal­lenges of im­mi­grants in our life­time.

The QA Demo­cratic Club urges res­i­dents to work with them to build a vis­i­ble and ro­bust Demo­cratic party in Queen Anne’s County.
