Maine Gov. Paul LePage and First Lady Ann LePage will attend the Lincoln County Republican Committee’s Lincoln Day dinner in Bristol Mills on Feb. 12.
The governor will join U.S. Sen. Susan Collins as a speaker at the event, according to Lincoln County Republican Committee Secretary Ken Maguire. Other guests will also make remarks.
State Rep. Stephanie Hawke, R-Boothbay Harbor; 1st Congressional District candidates Mark Holbrook and Ande Smith, Auburn Mayor Jonathon LaBonte; and Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald will also attend.
The event will take place at The 1812 Farm on Abraham Lincoln’s 207th birthday. The evening will start at 6 p.m. with a social hour, when guests will enjoy a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.
The food and entertainment will follow an Abraham Lincoln theme.
The menu includes some of Lincoln’s favorite dishes, such as fricassee chicken, honey-baked ham, whipped potato, collard greens, and apple bread pudding.
The Round Pond duo Castlebay will make a brief presentation about music of the Civil War and perform some of Lincoln’s favorite music. A re-enactor will deliver the Gettysburg Address.
Tickets are $50 each. To purchase tickets, mail a check payable to the Lincoln County Republican Committee to Peter Lawrence, P.O. Box 85, Nobleboro, 04555.
Organizers expect the event to sell out quickly, as have previous Lincoln Day dinners. Tickets will not be available at the door.
Collins was the speaker at the committee’s Lincoln Day dinner in 2013; the governor was the speaker in 2011.
