The Conservatives of The Upstate had a successful result from our booth at the Azalea Festival yesterday! We had a total of 27 people sign on as members ! Many more picked up information and stopped by to tell us thank you for having a booth and promoting conservatism. Many picked up free pocket Constitutions that Steve Haynie provided.
Thank you to Kathy Deweese Murphy Nix and Steve Haynie for helping with the booth and Barbara Holcomb’s for logistics and funding.
Junius and Carol Smith, the founders of our group were there in spirit, but couldn’t attend due to their health issues and were missed... please send thoughts and prayers their way.
Interesting fact... Rep David Hiott was there escorting candidate for SC Governor Catherine Templeton around and introduced her to several booths ... even the one right beside us - but he ignored bringing her to our booth.
Our next monthly meeting will be May 8th at 6:30PM. Our guest speakers will be Allan Quinn and Philip Healy who are both running for elected office in Pickens County.
More on this meeting will be posted soon.
