Sept. 11, 2012. On Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012, a cleanup crew consisting of Mary Desautels, Claudia MacDonald, Tom Pope, Phyllis Critcher and Ed McClearen washed windows, swept floors and generally cleaned up the GOP Headquarters at 102 N. Jefferson Ave. in West Jefferson. This space was made available by Lee McMillan, long time supporter of the Ashe County Republicans. All of this is to get ready for the grand opening to be held this Friday, Sept. 14 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. All this week people will be in and out of the new headquarters hanging signs and putting up decorations and preparing the building for activity.
Refreshments such as chili dogs with cole slaw and drinks will be served. People will be able to visit like-minded friends, and have political conversation in a comfortable atmosphere. In addition, people will be able to pick up yard signs and literature. Everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, email [email protected] or check out our website at www.AsheGOP.org.
