Hawkins County Republican Women

The Hawkins County Republican Women hosted a veery successful reception to "meet and greet" candidates running for State Representative, Congress, U.S. Senate and local government. It was attended by around 200 visitors and politicians. The event was catered by the Republican women and dinner music was provided by Glenn Rasmussen at the home of Connie Reinman on Main Street.

At the September meeting Buck Barrett from the local American Legion spoke at the club meeting regarding sponsoring a student to attend the American Legion and Auxillary Girls and Boys State held each year at Middle Tennessee State University and Tennessee Tech. The club voted to sponsor a student to attend the event for one week of activities that will impress upon them the responsibilities of citizenship and to develop leadership and to bring to these young men and women a realization of the duties of the American citizen.

Nancy Heck is the president of the Hawkins County Republican Women. The club meets every second Thursday in the month at Charlie's Restaurant at noon. Any Republican woman is encouraged to attend and join the club.
