Recently the 42nd Annual Missouri Democrat Days, or “Demo Days” were held in Hannibal, Mo. over the March 1-2 weekend. A two-day conference was held for those interested in attending. Some of the main events were entertainment with dancing, great food, and speakers such as State Representative Ed Schieffer, Governor Jay Nixon, Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, President of Missouri-Kansas-Nebraska Conference of Teamsters Jim Kabell and many more. During the Demo Days, Representative Ed Schieffer announced he will be running for the State Senate in the 10th District in 2014. Also making announcements, Dan Dildine spoke about his new endeavors and will make the leap to run for State Representative in 2014.

Among all the great leaders were several inspired youth leaders who came out to learn at the conferences. Local youth that made it out were Addric Deroy and Storm Davis. Pictured (L-R) Addric Deroy, Jay Nixon, and Storm Davis.
