The Lincoln County Democrats Club held its annual Grass Roots Rally on September 15, 2018. Attendees were treated to good food, good conversation, an excellent speech by the featured speaker, lots of fun and games and, in the process, raised funds for our candidates and good causes. Join us as we review the highlights of the evening!
With everyone’s appetites sated, it’s time to begin the evening’s speeches.
But wait! What’s this? A pie fight!
The 2018 Grass Roots Rally was a resounding success, needed funds were raised for our candidates and scholarship fund, and the candidates met with voters and got their message out. A good time was had by all. We look forward to another great time next year. Make plans to join us!
