The enthusiasm for the Shawano Area Woman’s Network (SAWN) is growing.  This group has several events planned in the next month.  They will share the Democrat’s booth at ShawanoFest in downtown Shawano on June 24th.  They will pass out brochures in the Gresham parade on July 1st.
They will also be a part of “Fired Up for Tammy” which is a statewide barbecue for Tammy Baldwin.  This event will be held at Huckleberry Harbor from 12-6 pm on July 8th.  Tammy will run for re-election next year and needs grassroots energy, so plan to stop in for pulled pork or a hot dog.
Any woman who would like to be a part of this active group is welcome.  Their shared interests include quality education for America’s youth and quality, affordable health care for all Americans.  The group has joined the Forward Action Wisconsin Network (FAWN) which has groups in all corners of WI.
