It was up to the northwest of Harvard for Steve Reick’s Saturday afternoon campaign event.
We arrived at the House of Lawrence after the speeches were over and just when Patsy Cline tribute singer Mary Pfeifer of Dwight was about to begin singing.
Some might call that perfect timing.
Besides host Republican State Rep. candidate Steve Reick, the man in charge of handing out the cash for House Republicans, Jim Durkin gave a talk before he left.
Durkin must have had a busy schedule because I didn’t catch sight of him pressing the flesh.
We were in time for the pig roast, though.
It was quite good and my bride even chewed on the inside of the hide.
Soft drinks, beer and wine were provided at no cost, although donations for the affair were solicited.
Reick mingled with the crowd greeting those attending.
Mike Walkup wasn’t the only candidate in attendance.
Recorder of Deeds candidate Joe Tirio was accompanied by his wife, McHenry County College Board member Karen.
After the concert was over, Reick thanked singer Patsy Cline Tribute signer Mary Pfeifer.
