Saturday night I went with my husband to the Greene County Republican Partys Lincoln Day Dinner at the Community Center. Please note that we are not Republicans…yet anyway.
My husbands friend invited us and gave us the tickets and we rarely(never?) turn down a free dinner.
I couldn’t understand anything the speakers said. I was too far away from the podium. Since I couldn’t see them lip reading was impossible. And microphones tend to distort sound so much that I couldn’t even tell what songs they were singing.
However the community center gym looked really nice and the place was packed. More than 500 people were there.
They had a silent auction and a live auction and everyone seemed to enjoy that. Whether it actually got them much money I don’t know.
The main speaker was Oliver North. He also did a book signing. He looked good. I have no idea what he had to say though.
So what do I know you wonder?? The dinner was excellent!!
I mean really really good. The caterers served bacon wrapped baked chicken that was really good. The cream potatoes were delicious. Too bad I didn’t get more of them…I thought about going back for seconds but that just didn’t seem right.
They also had green beans, a small salad, and several cake choices for desert.
It was very well organized too. They had three tables set up for six lines of people and they managed to get all those people served within 20 minutes or so. Maybe less as I wasn’t actually timing them.
I believe it was the Red Goose Deli in downtown Paragould, AR. that did the catering. So if you happen to be in Paragould and are looking for some good food check them out!
