    Lincoln Day Dinner 2019

     Lincoln Day Dinner

    Lincoln Day Dinner

    We are excited to have Lt. Colonel Oliver North as our keynote speaker for this year's dinner.  Lt. Col. North has had an extraordinary career, and is the current president of the National Rifle Association. 

    The Tazewell County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner is our major fundraiser of the year.  We have to fight the progressive Liberal agenda on all fronts and our hard-working elected Republican officials in Springfield cannot do it alone now that Democrats have a super-majority.  Our agenda is simple; raise money, energize our base and recruit good people who can run and win at all levels. 

    Lt. Col. North's inspiring message along with the silent and live auctions planned for the evening will be remembered for years to come and will be a gala you will not want to miss.
