Paul RyanThis Thursday, August 9, we in this area have a special opportunity to hear and see Congressman Ryan.

He will headline a fundraising breakfast for State Representative Roger Rivard in Turtle Lake. I hope you will consider attending both to see Congressman Ryan and to support Representative Rivard.

There is a lot of speculation as to who Governor Romney will pick for his vice presidential running mate. Any day between now and the beginning of the Republican National Convention on August 27, the announcement of his choice will be made. Every list of potential choices – long and short – has Congressman Paul Ryan on it.

You are asked to RSVP by 8/7 to Berni Rivard by either calling 715-859-6279 or emailing her at

The breakfast will be held at the Shinako Lodge & Event Center, 730 Hwy. 8/63, Suite E, Turtle Lake beginning at 7:30AM.

The minimum donation to attend is $50.00 and the maximum donation permitted is $500.00.
