78th Annual Lincoln Day Dinner

We are proud to announce the 78th Annual Harrison County Lincoln Day Dinner, which will be held on Tuesday, April 11, and will feature remarks by Senator Todd Young.

It will be held at Unity Chapel just south of Ramsey. The address is 1760 Lost Creek Road NW, Ramsey, IN 47112. A Google map is available here.

Doors will open at 6:00 pm for “meet and greet.” Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm.

The dinner will be a chance for local Republicans and the public to meet and hear from the Republican elected officials, enjoy a good meal, and share fellowship and patriotism with fellow Republicans.

Tickets are $25 per person and are available by RSVPing to Holli Castetter at 812-972-2445 or by sending an email to the address on the right.

The evening will also feature a silent auction to help raise money for the local GOP.

Ads may also be purchased in the event program. Ads are the perfect way for local businesses to show their support for the good conservative government in Harrison County and for elected officials and candidates to target advertising directly to a large group of Republican voters.

Please email the address on the right or contact Scott Fluhr at (812) 972-5182 for more information. Ads must be received on or before April 5.

We are also in need of a few good Republicans to volunteer and help with setting up the building for Lincoln Day and cleaning up afterward. If you are interested in volunteering, please send us an email.

See you at the Lincoln Day!

Three (out of three) precinct committeemen were present. One candidate filed a declaration indicating an interest in seeking the position of Morgan Township Advisory Board.

Caucus Information for Morgan Township Board Vacancy

The Harrison County Republican Central Committee will caucus on Sunday, January 15, at 5:00 p.m. at the Senior Center in Palmyra for the purposes of filling the vacancy on the Morgan Township Advisory Board created by the election of Charlie Crawford as the County Commissioner for District #1.

Only precinct committee members from Morgan Township may vote in this caucus. Precinct vice committee members may vote as proxies for their absent precinct committee member.

Voting will be by private ballot and will continue until one candidate has reached a majority of the precinct committee members and proxies that are present.

Indiana law empowers the county chairman to break a tie if one exists, but the county chairman will not be exercising this authority. Voting will continue until the tie is broken by the committee members and their proxies.

Once the caucus has selected who will fill the vacancy, the county chairman will certify the result to the Circuit Court Clerk. Harrison County Circuit Court Judge John Evans will be on hand that evening to swear in whoever is chosen to fill the vacancy.

Individuals interested in seeking the vacancy must file a written declaration of candidacy (CEB-5 form) with Harrison County Republican Party Chairman Scott Fluhr no later than 72 hours before the caucus, in this case by Thursday, January 12 at 5:00 p.m. Individuals interested in seeking the Morgan Township Advisory Board position can contact him via email address on the right. The necessary forms are available from the Circuit Court Clerk's office or via the aforementioned email address.

The caucus meeting on the evening of January 15 will be open to the public.
