The Ghosts of Tonkin

August 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin resolution and the start of the Vietnam War.  On the heels of their sold-out performances of Border Songs, Bellingham TheatreWorks presents The Ghosts of Tonkin.  Written by Steve Lyons and directed by Mark Kuntz, this award-winning play dramatizes the behind-the-scenes story of how seemingly well-intentioned public officials brought about one of the most devastating episodes in the history of the United States: The Vietnam War.

By purchasing tickets online and entering the password code DEM and clicking "See available Tickets", the Whatcom Democrats will receive half of the ticket proceeds! 

Post-play discussion moderated by Joe Teehan on Friday and Janet Marino on Saturday.

Thank You Parade Helpers!

Having 34 people in the Ski to Sea Parade happened because of the efforts of many people. We would like to thank all of the office staff and the PCOs that called Democrats in their precincts to ask people to join us in the parade. Every phone call was very important! We shared a booth with DFA (Democracy for America) at the Ski to Sea Festival on Sunday thanks to the generosity of Chuck Robinson of Village Books and Hue Beattie, who arranged it.
