Rockdale County Republicans will host a Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 beginning at 7:00 pm at Cherokee Run Country Club located at 1595 Centennial Parkway in Conyers. The dinner will celebrate the history of the United States and include several confirmed dignitaries from across the state. The Newton County Civil Air Patrol’s Color Guard will present the colors guest speakers include Senator Michael Williams, Phil Kent, David Belton, and State Chairman John Padgett.
“We are proud to host a dinner honoring two of the greatest presidents in American History. President Lincoln was credited, among other things, with rebuilding a nation after the bloodiest war in our history and signing the Emancipation Proclamation. This allowed for more than 3 million enslaved African-Americans to be legally labeled as free instead of slave, ending a horrible practice in our nation.” said Toby Dryer, Chairman. “President Reagan, is most notably recognized as ending the cold-war, extending the Voting Rights Act, and making Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday a national holiday.”
Both President’s believed deeply in freedom for all people, regardless of race, gender, or creed. The Rockdale Republicans are proud to honor both of these past presidents who, for different reasons, led a nation through a very difficult time. While we face similar challenges today, these two great men made significant contributions in moving our nation forward as a unified nation. The Rockdale Republicans look forward to working with the community and all elected officials to also lead Rockdale County to one of unity, as these two presidents did for our nation.
