Are you ready for August Elections?

Are you ready for the August 2ndElections?

If not, plan on attending "Meet the Candidates” event and dinner, on Thursday, July 21, 2022, at 6:00pm at the Walkerville Wesleyan Church's gymnasium.

We've invited area candidates to eat dinner and visit with you! Those in a contested race (or their representative) will speak at the event. Follow our Walkerville Thrives Facebook page where we will announce candidates accepting the invitation.

At 6:00pm dinner (Hot dogs, chips, lemonade, coffee, dessert) is served. COST: $3.00-$5.00 donation per person. Proceeds support Sisters in Service's local missions.

At 6:30pm, candidates will be called to the speaker podium to address attendees. In addition, Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast will present information on the 2.25 mill request which will appear on the August ballot.

Tables with information and materials will be setup by the speakers. Everyone is invited to stay afterwards to visit with Candidates, ask questions, and pick up promotional materials.

We believe this is a great opportunity for you to meet the candidates prior to the August election.
