Hillary has a corps of dedicated neighbors in Chappaqua, New York who energetically support her every day they can in every way they can. The Chappaqua Friends of Hill and Tim have organized local events to raise voter awareness and funds for the campaign. They diligently register voters, canvass, and phone bank both from home and at campaign headquarters in Brooklyn. For them, distance is no obstacle so it was no surprise that they organized a field trip to Philadelphia where they attended the convention to see Hillary make history.
Here’s how the hometown magazine, Inside Chappaqua/Inside Armonk, reports their story.

It started with a single Facebook post, on April 12, 2015, the day Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for president of the United States.
Dawn Evans Greenberg invited her friends in Chappaqua to join her for a drink to celebrate. A small group gathered, and decided they wanted to help the campaign. The group mushroomed, and now has 750 members ages 16 to 69. A satellite group in Rivertown has 200 participants.
Fifteen months later, after hours of making phone calls, knocking on doors and registering voters, ten members of Chappaqua Friends of Hill and Tim (the name officially changed last week) attended the Democratic National Convention to watch Clinton accept the nomination.
They will continue to work hard for Hillary and Tim through the general election cycle. Who knows? One day you might pick up the phone and one of them might be at the other end of the line encouraging you to volunteer or to vote for Hillary!
