Cass County Fairs and Parades

Whew! A busy summer filled with events is well underway and we just completed 2 county fairs and 3 parades in less than 2 weeks. I want to extend a special thank you to all the volunteers who helped out while we promoted the Cass County Republican Party. Nancy Evans, Ron and Rosalie Miller, Art and Carol Becker, Paul and Pat Ritter, Kevin Castiglione, Terry Brandt, Tane Barclay, Mark and Jan Skjolsvik, and Werner Schultz all gave generously of their time and efforts.

We were very well received at all the events and I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a strong GOP presence at as many functions as possible. The recent state government shutdown was a hot topic and it was critical to be accessible to the public to field questions and defend our Republican principles. It’s very gratifying to know that the public sentiment is behind us and now Governor Dayton has finally seen the folly of his ways.

Though we try to keep expenses to a minimum, having booths at the fairs does cost money. The fees for the booths, flags for the drawings, and helium for the balloons totaled $346 while donations received only came to $51.28. I know many of you were unable to commit your time for these events, so perhaps you would consider a small donation to help defray the cost. Even $5 would help replenish our meager account and would be greatly appreciated.

Please make checks payable to Cass County Republicans and send your contributions to;
