Sunday afternoon was a great get-together to meet and greet the First Lady of Ohio, Frances Strickland. To a group of about 50 supporters, she spoke about her goals and the visions of her husband, Governor Ted Strickland. She is a musician and entertained the crowd with a Johnny Cash tune with her enhanced songwriting.

She was presented with a special gift from Don Bolen, and for those who know him, we all know what it was!

State Representative Ray Pryor and his wife Jennifer were there, and he also spoke to the group.

I was kept busy with keeping the sign-in sheet, making nametags and then taking photos of the event. It was a busy 90 minutes of activity.

Mrs. Strickland was stopping by Fayette County on the way to the Highland County Democratic Picnic as the featured speaker. Columbus was in contact with Fayette County and the beautiful home of Sue and Gerald Raypole was selected for the event.

The next event will be held on August 15th at the New Holland Community Center, with State Representative Ray Pryor, and we were notified last Friday that the Governor will be there to meet and greet the crowd. A representative from the Justin Fallon Campaign said that Fallon might also be there.

I look forward to more get-togethers and more photo opportunities like today.
