Douglas County Republicans will gather this Friday for the county’s first modern-day Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner.
The event will be held at the multipurpose room of Ava Victory Academy, located just east of the Highway 5 and 14 intersection in Ava. The social time will begin at 5:30 with the dinner at 6 o’clock.
Keynote speaker will be Catherine Hanaway, Missouri’s first female Speaker of the House and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, appointed to that position by President Bush.
Missouri Republican candidates for U.S., state, district and county offices have been invited to attend this rally which is being sponsored by the Douglas County Republican Women.
There will also be live music during the evening.
Tickets are still on sale for the event and can by purchased at the Ava Chamber of Commerce Office or Independent Copy Center; or by calling 417-712-4688.
Lincoln Day events are traditional celebrations and fundraising events of the Republican party, named for the first elected president of the Republican party, Abraham Lincoln.
In more recent years, following the death of Ronald Reagan, some events have been renamed in his honor. This event in Douglas County has been named Lincoln-Reagan Day to recognize both.
