Hog roast chance to meet officeholdersPublished 12:30pm Thursday, September 19, 2013
ROME TOWNSHIP — A hog roast without politics is what Lawrence County Commissioner Freddie Hayes is offering the community this Saturday at the Lawrence County Fairgrounds.
“It is just something I wanted to put on and give back to the people,” Hayes said.
It will also be a chance for the community to have one-on-one conversations with those who run the county government.
“I have invited every officeholder and it will give the people a chance to meet them,” Hayes said. “It is not a political thing. They will be invited from both parties, Democrats and Republicans.”
Officeholders will each have a minute to speak and then dinner will begin.
There will be four hogs roasted including this year’s grand champion hog with side dishes of macaroni and cheese and cole slaw.
During the meal country music singer and radio show hostess Julie Reeves will perform.
“It is a good time for us all to get together and let the people have a chance to meet the officeholders,” Hayes said. “I am mainly doing this to give back.”
The event is free and starts at 5 p.m. at the fair barn.
