SaddleBrooke Republican Club General Meeting
November is a month of Thanksgiving! SaddleBrooke Republican Club Members have so many things to be thankful for:
- The freedom to vote without fear
- The reverence for our veterans who have served our country.
- The pride in our law enforcement who keep us safe.
- The admiration for the firemen who respond to our emergencies with efficiency and speed.
- The young people who have hearts filled with patriotism.
The PRCA Ensemble from Pusch Ridge Academy, directed by Mr. Daniel Dunning, sang the Star Spangled Banner in perfect harmony as the colors were posted by members of the American Legion. Madi Van Holsbeke, an 8th grade student at Pusch Ridge, read her patriotic essay which won her the opportunity to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. Our veterans in the audience were honored for their service to our country. Plaques of appreciation for their service were awarded to Sheriff Lamb and Fire Chief Randy Karrer. Onita Davis explained the purpose of the Wreaths Across America and encouraged members to not only contribute to the purchase of the wreaths but also to participate in placing the wreaths on the graves of our veterans.
Members of the SaddleBrooke Republican Club Board of Directors were honored for their incredible hard work and dedication in the 2018 election year. Fortunately for our club, all Board members have agreed to stay in their positions for 2019.
November – a time for reflection – a time for appreciation – a time for thanksgiving!!
