October meeting of Republicans of Pike County meeting was held at Faith Baptist Church.
The meeting began with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a prayer. The group enjoyed a carry-in supper. Business meeting was called to order by club President John Baker. The club sponsored a float in the Heritage Days parade in Bowling Green and assisted the Pike County Republican Central Committee with a booth.
The club sponsored a $50 gas card that was given away at Heritage days. The winner of the card was Mrs. Winifred Shy. The club will participate in the parade in Clarksville on Oct. 12 and in the Colorfest parade in Louisiana on Oct. 19. Volunteers are needed to help with both parades. Please show up to help decorate at 9 a.m. for both parades.
The Clarksville parade will line up at the antique mall in Clarksville. The Louisiana parade lines up across the street from the Louisiana High School. A nominating committee was appointed to recommend officers for the club. Election of new officers will be at the November meeting. Chairmen is Cecil Hupper. Other volunteers are Sam Sherlock and Betty Evans.
In other business, the club voted to pay for a wi-fi hot spot for a web-host administrator if that person does not have an internet provider.
John Warner announced that the “life chain” will be gathering at the Hannibal High School on Oct. 6. This is an annual event and an opportunity for pro-lifers to gather and pray for the victims of abortion and those who will be aborted.
The main discussion for the evening was the need for thE Christian community to come together to work for the common good of our country. The majority of the people in the United States are still Christians, but many are still not willing to work or even pray with other Christians.
Next club meeting will be Nov. 7 at Faith Baptist Church in Louisiana. Club meetings begin with a carry-in supper at 6:30 p.m.
