Congratulations to Carol Marino of Holly Springs for her winning ticket in the Southern Wake Benelli Shotgun Raffle drawing

The Benelli Shotgun Raffle Drawing was conducted at the beginning of the regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Tuesday, the 16th of September. The winner was Carol Marino of Holly Springs. A very surprised Carol Marino remarked that, "she's never won anything in her life." Well good for her. Now buy plenty of ammo, polish up those marksmanship skills, and then protect your household with this newly acquired artillery piece!

Important information about the format and style of our future club meetings - please note

In an effort to "stir things up and make our meetings a bit more interesting," the Southern Wake Republican Club will be experimenting with different locales for various meetings.  The style and location of our October 21st meeting will be as an informal social to be held at the My Way Tavern, 301 W. Center St., Holly Springs, NC 27540.  This well established locale is situated right next to the Holly Springs Town Hall.  This social will center around meeting various local candidates and will enable folks to interact with them in an informal setting.  Enjoy a glass of wine or a beer (cash bar), along with a superb menu.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 and run through 8:30.  Drop in whenever you can - we'd love to see you and bring a friend for a beer (or two) and meet with the candidates.  

And in the future, we may split things up a bit by holding an occasional  "Breakfast/Brunch" social at places such as the Sip Wine and Coffee Bistro, 128 Bass Lake Road, Holly Springs, NC 27540 (located right next to the Lowe's Supermarket on the corner of Holly Springs Road and Bass Lake Road - most likely starting at 10 AM and running through 11:30 AM (stay tuned for more information).

This does not mean we're giving up our Golden Corral meeting location - far be it.  We will still meet there periodically for more formal meetings to discuss matters of importance to the club, the GOP, and conservatism in general.
