The Green Gala is the Warren County Green Party's spring fundraiser, we have live music, a silent art auction, light refreshments, and of course, lots of political speeches. Having it in the spring (this year's was on April 1st), gives us the opportunity to announce our candidates well in advance of the fall elections.

Jill Stein Visit
On June 9th 2016 we had the absolute pleasure of hosting Dr. Jill Stein for the day.
In the afternoon we held a rally in front of a G.E. Plant in Fort Edward.
For dinner, we filled Rock Hill Bakehouse Cafe in Glens Falls, enjoying a vegan meal and some superb conversations.
We capped the night off with political speeches at The Gold Shade in Glens Falls.
Meetings, Events and Pot Lucks
We host our monthly meetings at Rock Hill Bakehouse Cafe on the first Wednesday of every month. We also host speaking events and pot lucks at the cafe from time to time.
Some pictures from various monthly meetings.
We hosted Robin Laverne Wilson for a pot luck while she was running for the U.S. Senate. We recently hosted our first presentation on "fake news" by Joy Kaczmarek.
Warren County Greens in the community
We like to stay active in our community and are often seen at local rallies and protests. Here we are at the 2017 Climate Change March, Standing up against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and tabling at the 2016 Gay Pride March in Glens Falls. That is Matt Funiciello addressing their crowd.
We are members of the Glens Falls Collaborative and table at many of their events. Here are pics from 2016 Take-a-Bite, 2016 Warrensburg Garage Sale, the 2016 Food and Farm Festival, and volunteering at Fit Fest.
Being lovers of music, we also like to table at local concerts and festivals. Here we are at The Great Magua in Bolton Landing, The American Independent Music Festival in Lake George, and all three 2016 candidates waiting for Blue Oyster Cult to play at the American Music Festival in Lake George.
