Democrats to Feature Candidates on the Woodstock Square after Memorial Day Parade

The leaves are full on the trees in the Woodstock Square now, but this is the place Democratic Party candidates will be campaigning mid-day on Memorial Day after that town’s parade.

The Democratic Party of McHenry County will hold a meet and greet for its candidates in the Woodstock Square immediately after the Woodstock Memorial Day Parade on May 31 at approximately noon.

Here’s what the McHenry County Democratic Party McHenry Fiesta Days Parade contingent looked like in 2008.

The event is open to anyone interested in joining us and learning more about the Democratic Party.

The City’s annual Memorial Day Ceremonies will take place in the Park in the Square at 10 AM on Monday, May 31st.

The Ceremony will be immediately followed by the annual Memorial Day Parade which will proceed around the Square, up West Jackson Street, and then back down West Judd Street, to disband at the Throop Street parking lot.

The Parade is set to start about 11.

  1. Cal,

    Please stop calling the LIBERAL party the Democratic Party. They in NO WAY are

    democratic. The should be called the Democrat, no ic, Party.

    Thank you,


  2. It’s too bad intollerance is so great amongst some, that they feel the Democracy is limited to their own views. Democrats believe that government can be a force for improvement in our towns, counties, states, nation and the world.
    Without government to check the excesses of corportations and individuals we would be left to the whim of those in our society who would wreak havoc upon it, in short sighted pursuit of their own temporary gain.
    As John Adams once noted, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary” We need some government to prevent the excesses by individuals and corporations need to be regulated so that they do not create massive oil spills due to neglegence or wrecklessness. It would, afterall, be better if we prevent problems before they occur, wouldn’t it? Too little government is just as bad as too much.
    Political discource really needs to be more respectful. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have all the answers. Let’s stop name calling, and respect people with different concerns and perspectives than we have. We are all Americans, and we all have the right to advocate for what we believe in.
    Our government was founded upon compromise, and we need to stop seeing compromise as a dirty word.

  3. Looks like the Woodstock square needs to have some light cast upon it. The Democrats will do their best today after the Parade!

  4. Due to inclement weather the Woodstock Memorial Day Ceremonies and Parade has been canceled. The Democrats have also decided to cancel the post parade meet and greet scheduled for after the parade for safety reasons.
    We’d like to acknowledge and thank all those who came out to participate with us, and with other organizations in the parade and Ceremonies. Hail and lightening were not part of the bargain.
    Yet, no storm can temper the dedication and honor that all of our people feel and owe to the men and women who serve and have served our nation today and in the past.
    God Bless the Men and Women of the Armed Services.
