Highland Festival Reception for Sen. Debbie Stabenow on Saturday

Some of our Democratic friends in Gratiot County are hosting a reception for U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow and have invited all of us to join them.

Place: Alma College, Van Dusen Commons*

Time: 9:00 am-10:30am- Senator will arrive at 9:15 and leave at 10:15-
Donation: $25 per person or $35 per family**- children encouraged!--they can walk with her in the parade if they like.


Host Committee-- Vicki Chessin & Duane Powell; Jeff Holmes& Ginna Holmes; Joanne Gilbert & Mike Bishop; Tim Lambrecht and Anne Lambrecht; Linda Luneack; Nancy Gallagher& Dave Walsh; Michael Stack & Leyla Moossavi

**Of course, you may donate more as able- but we think it is very important to demonstrate that there are Democrats and Dem leaning independents in central Michigan-so we set a reasonable amount to encourage attendance

Everyone welcome! - And please stay for the festival parade, art/crafts fair and numerous Scottish/Celtic events, games, animals and the requisite beer tent! -You will be surprised at the number of people in little old Alma-thousands visit Festival weekend- there is an admission cost to the field events, but the art fair and parade, of course, are free- (but bring your checkbook-they have great stuff!)

*VanDusen commons-take first Alma exit, go straight through the intersection, south about 2miles to Superior Street- turn right on Superior, go west a few blocks, turn right on Harvard(the first street past the college chapel)-VanDusen is in the first building on the right- if parking is tight, there is plenty of parking 2 blocks west on Superior St at the Presbyterian church

[UPDATE BY Bob per John B's comments]:
It would be nice if folks would RSVP if they plan to attend the Stabenow breakfast on Saturday at Alma College- so the organizers can get a rough estimate for food purposes--
