Some of us older citizens can remember the late broadcaster and columnist Paul Harvey ending his broadcasts with “. . . and now you know the rest of the story.” Mr. Harvey is no longer with us, but you can still hear the rest of the story about what’s happening politically in Peoria if you join us for the Second Ward Club breakfast on Saturday, April 1st -- just 3 days prior to the next local election.

On April 1, several local elected officials will speak on various issues and pertinent legislative matters in an informal setting. Questions and discussion are welcomed! Enjoy good food, good company, and network with others while learning about the current political climate in our community. It will be an informative 90 minutes of lively conversation!

What are the benefits of attending our Second Ward Club breakfast you may ask? Let me list them for you:

  • Take part in asking Republican office holders on the national, state and local levels about proposed or recent legislation.
  • Engage in political discussions with these same office holders and others present.
  • Gain information from officeholders that’s not clouded by the presence of the press who have no place in a private meeting.

So please join us from 8:30-10 am on the first Saturday of even numbered months at 8:30 am at Barracks Inn, 1224 W. Pioneer Parkway, Peoria, for a great breakfast ($11.00) or coffee only ($3.00) and great fellowship. Cash and checks only accepted. RSVPs to Barracks are welcomed but not necessary.
