Lincoln Day Postponement

Hello everyone,

Because of CDC and Indiana State Department of Health guidance to avoid holding large events for the next several weeks, we have decided to postpone the annual Harrison County Lincoln Day Dinner, which would have been held on Monday, April 6.

As much as we all look forward to seeing each other at the dinner each year, the health and safety of everyone in our community must be our paramount concern.

We will be rescheduling the dinner, but do not have a date yet. The rescheduled date will be announced later. We have spoken with Senator Mike Braun's staff, and he will hopefully remain our speaker at the new date.

Deadlines associated with the James L. Shireman Civics Scholarship are likewise being postponed, as the Scholarship is awarded at the dinner.

For those that have paid for tickets in advance, several options are available:
  1. A full refund is available to anyone wanting it.
  2. We can hold your check and count it toward your tickets to the rescheduled Lincoln Day Dinner. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will provide a full refund at that time.

Most payments we have received for advance ticket payment are by check and have not been deposited. If you want the payment to count toward tickets to the rescheduled dinner, we will not deposit your check until then.

Advance ticket buyers can let us know their preference by calling Holli Castetter at 812-972-2445 or by emailing the address on the right.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Please be safe and follow all health guidelines to help reduce the risks to yourself and those around you.

Prayers,

Scott

Scott Fluhr
Chairman
Harrison County Republican Party



P.S.
Contrary to rumors, there are at present no plans to cancel or reschedule the May 5 primary election or the June Republican state convention.

81st Annual Lincoln Day Dinner

We are proud to announce the 81st Annual Harrison County Lincoln Day Dinner, which will be held on Monday, April 6, and will feature United States Senator Mike Braun.

It will be held at Lincoln Hills Christian Church on Highway 62 just west of Corydon. The address is 1130 Dale Ave, Corydon, IN 47112. A Google map is available here.

Doors will open at 5:30 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 candidates and elected officials, enjoy a good meal, and share fellowship and patriotism with fellow Republicans.

Tickets are $30 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.

Payment for tickets may be made in advance by sending a check to Harrison County Republican Party, P.O. Box 729, Corydon, IN 47112 or by paying online at donate.HarrisonGOP.com.

The evening will also feature a silent auction and other opportunities 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 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 for more information. Ads must be received on or before Monday, March 30.

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!

Harrison Township Board Caucus Results

The Harrison Township members of the Harrison County Republican Central Committee met in caucus on Saturday, January 25, at 10:00 a.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Lester Rhoads from the Harrison Township Advisory Board. Rhoads was elected this past November to the Ward 3 seat on the Corydon Town Council, and resigned from the Advisory Board effective December 31.

Seven (out of eleven) precinct committeemen were present. One candidate filed a declaration indicating an interest in seeking the position.

The candidate was Rhonda Rhoads, who has served previously as an at-large county council member and as State Representative for District 70, representing most of Harrison County.

The caucus selected Rhoads to fill the vacancy. A formal vote was required to take place under Indiana state law even though she was unopposed. The vote was unanimous.

The Honorable John Evans, Judge of the Harrison Circuit Court, was on hand to swear in Rhonda Rhoads after the vote.
