Candidates have ample time to get ready for the big political rally July 20 sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5625 and its Ladies Auxiliary in Chiefland. The event is open to the public.
Everyone should bring an appetite as there is a dinner beforehand and a dessert auction following the forum.
The rally at 7 p.m., in the Post's smoke-free meeting room, will allow each candidate three minutes to speak to the public.
Before the jawboning starts, the post will host a country fried dinner with sides from 5 to 7 p.m. for a donation.
The political forum will be moderated by the local Democratic and Republican committees.
Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson, who is not up for election this year, will be the auctioneer. The auction proceeds benefit local veterans projects.
Here are some of the desserts already lined up:
• Banana cream pie & lemon meringue pie by Karen DeVette
• Sour Cream Pound Cake by Sharon Bolton
• Cherry crown cake & German chocolate cake by Linda Hingson
• Carrott cake by Betsey Barber
• Chocolate mint cake by Roz Boudreau
• Coconut cake by Dorothy Thompson
• Boston cream cake by Sue Artwich
The VFW Post is at 1104 S. Main St./U.S. Highway 19, Chiefland.
