SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE DEMOCRATS
We provide opportunities for our club members to participate in the political process, learn about current issues and join social events.
Nostalgic Holiday Village Open to Public
The Smith Mountain Lake Democrats invite nostalgia fans, young and old, to enjoy an extensive winter village display beginning December 2, 2023. The village contains more than 50 lighted buildings, urban and rural scenes, moving characters, and a working train.
A special celebration will be held on Saturday, December 9, from 11 am to 5 pm to see the village and enjoy light refreshments with the opportunity to meet Ann and Tom Tavino, who have collected the village items and set up the display every year.
The winter village will be on display at the Democrats’ office, 16483 Moneta Road in Moneta, and can be viewed every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, between 11 am and 3 pm, through December 23, 2023.
Be Heard and Make a Difference
If you want to take action, check out our Armchair Activist page. We’ll tell you about local, state and possibly national issues where your voice should be heard. By participating in the discussion, we can influence the direction of our government, even when Democrats are not in power. Together we are strong!
SML Democrats is open to all people of voting age who live in the three counties surrounding Smith Mountain Lake: Bedford, Franklin and Pittsylvania. Some members have property at the lake, but maintain permanent residences elsewhere.
Our club is active and you’ll find many ways to participate. You can join a committee, attend monthly meetings and social events, or help at election time, which is every year in Virginia. We look forward to welcoming you!
