GREENFIELD — More than 200 people are expected to turn out to support Hancock County’s biggest political party Friday in an ideal event for candidates to greet the party faithful.
The Lincoln Day Dinner is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday, but those who want to shake a few hands should show up an hour early.
“I think it’s a good opportunity (for candidates) to mingle with the people and show that they support the Republican Party,” said Janice Silvey, GOP chairwoman. “They come, they support the party, they’ve got the hour before that they can mingle.”
Silvey said while 236 people have signed up to attend the fundraiser so far, tickets will also be sold at the door.
