I ran across this on the Better Howard Together Facebook group and thought I would share it to my readers.

This looks like it would be an excellent opportunity to sit and chat with various candidates running for office in 2018. I know many of you have to work…but if not…take this excellent opportunity to go talk to these candidates!
I would love to make it…but the flu big got me this weekend (actually started on Thursday evening)…I am feeling a little bit better…but still not at 100%…so more meds today and will see how I am doing tomorrow…hopefully someone will bring a camera along and capture the event in case I can not make it out.
