Plowman & Fisherman Club


The Monocacy Plowman and Fisherman Club is one of the fundraising efforts of the Frederick County Democratic Party. It is not a traditional club. There are no meetings, and there are no officers.

Through a series of three annual events, our "members" get face-to-face with elected leaders and leading Democratic thinkers as we pull them off the stage and into local venues, and sometimes our kitchens, living rooms, and even our barns for the kinds of conversations and back-and-forth we don't usually get.

Maryland State Seal

The name of the club is based on the Maryland State Seal which has two men resting their hands on the State Shield; they are identified as the Plowman and the Fisherman upon whose labors Maryland flourishes.


The Plow-Fish kick-off event is normally held in the first few months of the year, with the second event set in the summer, and the last event held in either the fall or winter of the year. Once the event is scheduled, we will post all of the information on our website and Facebook page, along with sending the announcement via email.
