Photos from Lafayette County Republicans Lincoln Dinner, April 24th, 2015. Great crowd and fun evening! A big thanks to all who volunteered, donated and attended our annual Lincoln Dinner, from the Lafayette County Republican Central Committee and Federated Republican Women of Lafayette County. And we are especially grateful to all the candidates who attended. They gave inspiring and uplifting talks that challenged us all to work hard in the upcoming Election Year 2016.

Silent Auction Items

Federated Republican Women collected food items for community food pantries and displayed their achievement awards.

Heidi Kolkmeyer, treasurer, and Mark Schroer, vice chair, handled the registration table and 50/50 raffle.

Linda Niendick, County Clerk, led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Sen. David Pearce (21st) was our M.C. and as usual does a wonderful job.
Thank you Senator Pearce for all you do for Lafayette County Republicans!

Sen. Kurt Schaefer, keynote speaker, discusses "Erosion of States Rights".
It was a powerful address, and he received a rousing standing ovation when he concluded his remarks.
He is running for Missouri State Attorney General.
