Heather from the Circle K was here, as were Matt and Michaela. And Roger reminded us all to sell our raffle tickets so the club has the funds it needs for the year.

Doreena introduced DJ, who went on to tell us about his campaigning. he pointed out that service clubs like ours in some ways remind him of his military service - how we are all working to help others, and sometimes we take our rights and freedoms for granted. Next week we are going to the polls here in Butte and Anaconda, but when DJ was in Afghanistan in 2010 people there were risking being shot or bombed if they tried to go to the polls - something we take for granted here. But voting was so important to the Afghan people that they would take that risk.

DJ also told us about his experiences going door to door. Meeting people who had similar or different opinions, helping people bag cans for recycling. He observed that in trailer courts there are a greater number of flags flying or posted in windows than in other neighborhoods. Some people so appreciated that DJ was the first politician to knock on their door - ever - that they asked for instructions on how to vote! DJ said that campaigning has been a terrific experience.
