The FDR and Democratic Political Items Collectors

Although the chapter servers to educate members about Franklin Roosevelt, all Democratic presidents and candidates are part of the focus of the group. The chapter newsletter The New Deal Spirit is published 3 times per year with other member premiums occasionally distributed. The newsletter provides insight into FDR and his era through feature stories. Other Democrats are also feature in each issue with a focus on collection campaign-related buttons and other material from Democratic political campaigns past, present, and future.
