Time: 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM

We would like to invite you to attend an organizational/training meeting for SOD volunteer staff on Saturday morning May 20th from 9:30-11 am at the Hubert and Grace Harris Senior Center, 325 Perry Street (Opelika Road), Auburn, AL 36830. This meeting is open to the general public and we encourage you to bring family, friends, neighbors and business colleagues who may also be interested in getting involved. SOD is a nonpartisan, grassroots initiative comprised of Lee County citizens who share a common belief that the citizen holds the highest office in our representative democratic republic and it is the responsibility of each citizen to be informed about and actively engaged in civic life. Our first public event, Civic Saturday, held on March 4th at the Southside Center for the Arts in Opelika, was a great success with over 120 attendees and participants. The program at Civic Saturday introduced and elaborated on SOD’s mission to restore the Spirit of Democracy starting in Lee County, Alabama. Now, it is time to grow our organization so that we may proceed with our mission to provide a forum, resources, programs and actions to reestablish the core values of democracy and the role of the Office of Citizen. We will be moving to a more structured volunteer staff organized by committee. There are plenty of leadership opportunities for those who wish to become more involved as well as volunteer options for those with more limited time. We anticipate hosting a second Civic Saturday program in Auburn this July. We hope that you will be able to attend so we may move forward and begin planning for our next event. If possible, let us know if you are coming at info@sodalabama.org so we may anticipate our numbers. If you cannot attend, but are interested in becoming more involved with future SOD events and programs, we would love to hear from you as well so we can keep you informed. Get involved. Join the movement.
