Local bipartisanship alive and well
PALM DESERT — Palm Desert Greens Country Club is a golf and tennis community in the heart of Palm Desert with 3,000 residents. Within the Country Club, there are many service and recreational clubs. It is also becoming ground zero for local bipartisanship.
Because two of these clubs are the Republican Club and the Democratic Club. Members of both clubs are residents and neighbors in the active 55 and older community.
Recently both clubs we had the opportunity to support PDG’s largest annual golf tournament held March 19. The tournament raises thousands of dollars for the local Veterans of Foreign Wars. The two clubs came together to sponsor a sign for the tournament’s “Avenue of the Patriots.”
“We hope this can inspire others to ‘Reach across the aisle’ in a bipartisan way, between Democrats and Republicans,” said Ralph Perry, president of Palm Desert Greens Democrats. The sign was a pleasant and uplifting surprise for all!”
