As Labor Day brings an unofficial end to summer, I hope you are making plans to attend out annual cookout on September 16. We are excited that so many candidates for state office will be attending and speaking for a few minutes about their candidacy. In addition to the candidates we have wonderful entertainment scheduled for your enjoyment. “Rewind” of Blairsville will be performing as well as appearances by Nealy Webster and the Woody Gap “Band of Steel”.

Governor candidates confirmed to attend are David Shafer and Geoff Duncan. Secretary of State candidates attending are Buzz Brockway, Josh McKoon, and Brad Raffensberger. Follow us on Facebook for further updates.
In addition to these candidates, our local GOP officials will be attending. This event is a unique opportunity to meet with your elected officials. Senator Steve Gooch will be attending as well as Representative Matt Gurtler. Sheriff Mack Mason and District Attorney Jeff Langley will be attendance along with Tax Commissioner Lee Knight and members of the Board of Education.
