72nd Annual Lincoln Day Dinner

It’s that time of year again!

On Thursday, April 14, the Harrison County Republican Party will hold its 72nd Annual Lincoln Day Dinner. It will be held at Unity Chapel just south of Ramsey. The address is 1760 Lost Creek Road NW, Ramsey, IN 47166. 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, the county GOP’s seventy-second, will feature remarks by Richard Mourdock, Indiana's State Treasurer. The dinner will be a chance for local Republicans to meet, enjoy a good meal, and share fellowship and patriotism with fellow Republicans.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available by RSVPing to Betty Byrd at 812-738-2173 or 812-267-2193, or by sending an email to the address over 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 potential candidates to target advertising directly to a large group of Republican voters.

A half-page ad, measuring 6 inches in width by 3.5 inches in height, is available for $50. A full-page ad, measuring 6 inches in width by 7.5 inches in height, is available for $100. Full page ads include the literature fee (see below). Ad space is limited.

Please send an email with your ad content to the email over on the right or contact Scott Fluhr at (812) 972-5182 for more information. Ads must be received on or before April 9.

Ads will be printed in color, though the printing is donated and accordingly we request that large expanses of solid color not be present in the advertisement.


The Harrison County GOP will levy a “literature fee” on the distribution of campaign materials by candidates or campaigns. Brochures, cards, flyers, and other campaign material may not be distributed in the event hall or on the premises without payment of the literature fee. This includes items that are handed out and items that are placed on tables. The fee is $20 per candidate or campaign. The fee is included in the cost of a full-page ad.


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 contact Maegan DeVore at (812)596-0574 (please call after 5 p.m.).
