This year, the Midtown Republican Club hosted a table at the Lincoln Day Dinner. We were proud to turn out and we also placed an ad in the program.
Ruth Henderson won the club member of the year award. Chairman Lang Wiseman called her on stage to present her with an engraved elephant award and to thank her for her hard work and willingness to participate every time she’s asked. In addition to helping us, Ruth volunteers at the Shelby County office regularly. Congratulations, Ruth!
Sherry Ray and her husband donated a ride in their airplane around west Tennessee and it got one of the highest bids of the evening, bringing in more than $250. Thanks for the item which was a great contribution.
Don Johnson was recognized for his hard work as executive director of the Shelby County Republicans. He will be missed when he starts working full time for Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn this month. Also acknowledged was Sharon Ohlsfeldt for her hard work with Charlotte Bergmann’s campaign. She got the campaign volunteer of the year award.
Congressman Stephen Fincher attended as did Senator Bob Corker, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Republican National Committeeman John Ryder.
