The Orion Area Democratic Club (OADC) has a booth (canopy) at the Independence Twp “Festival of Fun” from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on July 4th at Clintonwood Park (Clarkston). Please volunteer if you can help.

We will be joined by volunteers from the Oakland County Democratic Party and the North Oakland Democratic Club, who will help us with voter ID, Club/Party visibility and attracting new members.

The OADC canopy will be centrally located between the Tennis Courts and the Volleyball Courts. [Map]

The annual festival will feature a softball tournament, an arts and craft show, vendor booths (like ours), a K-9 Frisbee competition, live bands, children’s activities and fireworks (dusk). There will be a number of food concessions from local restaurants and caterers.

If you can help, please email me ( ) and let me know your preference (morning, afternoon, or hours available. I have some vendor parking passes ($5.00 value) but we would need to make arrangements prior to your arrival. Overflow parking will be at Clarkston High School ( 6093 Flemings Lake Rd Clarkston) and there will be a shuttle bus between Clintonwood Park and CHS.

If you can’t help, come anyway and drop by our booth.
