2007 Lincoln Day Dinner

The Lincoln Day Dinner was the "best ever" according to comments from attendees. The crowd of over 200 had a fun-filled evening. The humor of former Congressman Bill Jenkins, who emceed the event, and the musical entertainment of Jim Bowman kept the evening light and festive - especially with songs about the Hawkins County Jailbreak and Rufus the Rooster.

Buddy Testerman and Jenny V. Larkin were named as GOP Man and Woman of the Year and presented with awards for their outstanding service to the Hawkins County Republican Party.

The newly elected GOP officers were introduced by Juvenile Court Judge Jay Taylor.

Congressman David Davis and Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey were the keynote speakers. The Lt. Governor detailed the events as they unfolded in Nashville in January as he was elected the first Republican Lt. Governor in 150 years. "It don't get any better than that!" according to Ramsey.

Looking ahead to 2008, Lt. Governor Ramsey told the crowd he needed help in Nashville and Hawkins County provided the key. "Mike Faulk will make a great, hard-working, dependable State Senator", Ramsey added.
