The Veterans Park Pavilion was the site of one of two gatherings on Labor Day by Milam County Democrats, including several candidates for the general election. Democrats will return to the pavilion at 7 p.m. Thursday for a “livestreamed” viewing of President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic
National Convention, according to Richard Stone, county chair. “Members of the Senate District 5 delegation are expected to deliver a convention report about 7:45 p.m.,” he said. Stone asked those attending to bring lawn chairs, bug spray and a picnic. On Monday, Milam Democrats also gathered in Cameron.
