The annual John and Deloris Crosson Democratic Ideals Award is named after long-time San Lorenzo Valley residents and political activists, who worked tirelessly to support the local Democratic Club and north county democratic issues. John, a U.S. Navy veteran, was confined to a wheelchair due to a spinal cord injury but physical limitations never interfered with his advocacy efforts and political activities. Deloris was a uniquely free spirit who demonstrated that we can engage in political activity and still have a good time.


Club members nominate award candidates in April and we present the award at our Spring Fundraiser.
