Third Annual American-Minnesotan Dinner Oct. 2nd

posted Sep 14, 2020, 8:04 PM by Cass County Republicans   [ updated Sep 14, 2020, 8:05 PM ]


As we enter the “home stretch” in this all-important election, we have an opportunity to build enthusiasm to a high level of intensity. We must help all our candidates to cross the finish line November 3rd and turn this State of MN “RED” for the first time in decades. Your support at our annual American-Minnesotan Dinner (@ Gull Lake) will be an important step in the right direction.


We felt saddened about having to cancel our similar event (@ Leech Lake) on 9-17-20, but are very excited about going “full steam ahead” in having this gathering at Cragun’s Legacy on Friday, October 2nd. That’s just a month away, so be sure to make plans to attend in support of our GOP candidates. All information is included in the attached flyer. Please show your allegiance and participate, if at all possible. See you there on October 2nd.


Best regards from Fred Hage, Cass County BPOU Chairman

DUE TO COVID 19, we have used our best judgement to move the dinner date out about 4 months to protect our citizens/constituents during this most unusual period in recent history. Let's all exhibit our continued support and energy in order to promote this gathering to be as great as possible.  This important event will contribute to the campaigns of all our candidates in this election year. I look forward to a sellout crowd at Northern Lights Event Center on Thursday 9-17-20 and hope to see and meet as many people as possible.

The Cass County Republicans BPOU is proud to announce the formulation of a highly respected new group within our organization.

 This club will be called the GRAND INNER CIRCLE and will be comprised of individuals who have contributed $1000 or more to help fund our political “grass roots” movement. The members of this group can be of our own staff who have contributed, in aggregate, over the past years to reach this goal to attain the above-mentioned status. It can also include those non-staff individuals who are of special mention. Any non-staff contributors to this group will have full transparency to our operations and be invited to all committee meetings.

       We are proud to introduce the first charter members of the group as IRMA & DUTCH CRAGUN, who have helped so much in launching our well-attended first American-Minnesotan Dinner. It recently took place at the Cragun Legacy Golf facility on October 13th and was a great GOP rally that stimulated energy for the upcoming election and created some necessary fundraising.

  We hope to see continued interest and growth in this newly formed club. This will be an entry on our “navigation bar” on our website (, so please follow it for updates as well as just perusing through the entire website for information on our activities.

Thank you, again, to Irma and Dutch Cragun!

With best regards

from Fred Hage - Cass County

American-Minnesotan Dinner

posted Sep 29, 2018, 1:34 AM by Cass County Republicans   [ updated Oct 23, 2018, 6:26 PM ]

     I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped contribute in making our American-Minnesotan Dinner the successful event that it turned out to be. A special thanks goes to Rachel Buttenhoff of the Beltrami County Republicans in rallying their troops and getting about 20 people to attend from that area. I also want to commend Rich Siegert in doing such a great job with their BPOU group in Beltrami. I additionally want to extend gratitude towards our staff for their hard work and effort that was put towards this project. Without Justin, Steve, Pat and Nancy, I would have been greatly handicapped in the process. We all need to remember that the most important component in making this entire event possible is “Irma & Dutch Cragun”. Without their generosity in providing the beautiful golf pavilion facility, our dinner would not have become the great reality that was enjoyed by those in attendance. Lastly, we all appreciate the elected officials and candidates who took time out from their busy schedules to offer input and excitement into the rally. The American-Minnesotan Dinner will tentatively be scheduled for the 2nd Saturday in October each year as a fundraiser and rally for the Cass County Republicans. Thank you with great sincerity from Fred Hage, your Cass County BPOU chairman.
