A national event is taking place wherein supporters for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign are coming together across the country and hosting house parties to “get the conversation started.” A local group is taking part as well.

The location is not a home per say, but Bensonhurst Park at Cropsey Avenue and Bay Parkway, near the Bay 29th Street entrance. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and conclude at 10 p.m.

The plan is to talk to volunteers and friends, exchange ideas, eat, and discuss grassroots campaigning. According to the invite, this local event will also include dance, game playing and party favors.

Organizers for the event are Bernadene Weekes and Sonny Urbine. Contact Weekes at (347) 379-3544 for information.
