Many of the candidates are also guest speakers at our Tuesday night Tea Time meetings. The Fair gives our organization even more opportunity to delve into the candidates’ stand on the issues, their goals, and their strategy to accomplish them within their vision of the role of government.  Attendees will also have a chance to see the historic keepsake American flag flown over the Capitol and have an opportunity to win it.  The Candidate Fair is free.  All are welcome.”
