Saturday and Sunday the annual African-American Festival will be held in Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton. This is always a popular festival and the weather looks to be good ... high in 70s and clear. Lots of crafts, food, and entertainment will greet you at this free event.
The local Republicans will be there as they are each year so you can pick up campaign materials for John McCain for President, Jim Gilmore for Senate, and Bob Goodlatte for Congress. Volunteers will be manning the booth so stop in and say hello and pick up your signs and bumper stickers.
If you can't make the festival, drop by Republican Headquarters which is located at 123 Greenville Avenue across the street from Mill Street Grill. It will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Signs and bumper stickers can be picked up there, and you can sign up to volunteer for manning headquarters, phone banking, or door-to-door canvassing.
Only six weeks to go until Election Day!
