5. Thanks to all for contacting the City Council about face masks.

Regardless of the outcome in Laguna Woods please review the County of Orange policy.

Founded in 1964 -- Chartered by the Democratic Party of Orange County.

Welcome to the Laguna Woods Democratic Club.  The Laguna Woods Democratic Club serves as the meeting and gathering place for registered Democrats and friends of the Democratic Party in the community of Laguna Woods Village.


Please note that our membership drive begins now.  Membership dues are on a calendar-year basis, from January to December.  Those joining or renewing now have dues paid through 2020.  And yes, every year to renew, you must complete an application (we are a PAC - Political Action Committee - and do things by the book!).  A 2020 membership application is attached in both Word doc and pdf.

There are lots of volunteer activities you can join; committee chairs with their contact info are included in the newsletter.  Please do help us get our brilliant incumbents re-elected next year and get out the vote so we can oust (one way or another) the orange man who has polluted the White House.


Monthly Meetings - Check here for more information regarding channel 6 meeting broadcasts.
