Looking for something to do this Saturday? Feel like hanging out with potential Republican candidates for office? Want to celebrate our armed forces?
Well folks, you're in luck: Al Melvin, the state senator out of District 11 and potential future Governor of Arizona will be speaking at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch as part of the Pima County Republican Party's celebration of Armed Forces Day. The event, scheduled for Saturday, May 18, will also feature a "Western-themed buffet", a silent auction and cocktails.
Also notable is the presence of retired Colonel Joey Strickland, formerly of the Arizona Department of Veterans Services and who resigned following the hiring-and-firing of Terri Proud, in one of his first speaking appearances since the events of last April.
The event will also honor Paul Marsh, for his work in arranging the National Cemetery in Marana.
If you're interested in joining Strickland, the Pima GOP, Marsh and Cap'n Al, tickets are $40 per person, with special rates for couples—but hurry, the deadline to RSVP is tomorrow, May 15.
