This event is designed as a time of prayer for City, State and National leaders as well as a time of personal rededication to God and Country.  A breakfast buffet opens at 7 am and the program begins at 7:30 at the Simmons Center.  Duncan Mayor Robert Armstrong will lead the event, Reverend Dr. Joe Ligon, former pastor at First Baptist Marlow will be the Guest Speaker and Guest Soloist is Valerie Gleason.  Dr. Joe Ligon will be the first to tell you that he doesn’t deserve to be where he is. He grew up in Seminole County in Oklahoma. He didn’t grow up going to church (at all). But he did grow up with a notion that he wanted to be a school teacher.  Joe completed his degree at East Central University and received his first teach- ing job at Konawa, OK. He had accomplished his life’s goal but felt quite unful- filled. It wasn’t long, that as a 22 year old man, Joe was saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  Within a year, Joe had accepted the Lord’s call on his life to serve in ministry.  Governor Stitt and a passel of other elected officials and candidates for other offices gathered at the Stephens County Fairgrounds in Duncan on Saturday evening.  Over 800 Republicans and friends came to enjoy fried fish, beans, cole slaw and potato salad, and a chance to get face to face with those who will be on the ballot on June 28th.  Candidates and volunteers maned the serving lines, while a team of cooks headed by Danny Thomas kept three large fryers going just outside the fairgrounds arena.  A fun auction raised additional funds for the local party that will be used to help support local and area candidates in the months ahead. Everything from a pair of George Walker Bush socks to a couple of rifles were auctioned along with a week’s vacation in Mexico.  Mealanie Beasley was awarded the annual Dr. Beasley award that is presented to someone who has been a working volunteer in the local party activities. Mela- nie is the late Dr. Gerald Beasley’s daughter-in-law.  Governor Stitt stirred the audience with his address of recent Oklahoma ac- complishments, including those issues that seem to rile the current whitehouse administration.  He spoke on the most restrictive abortion law in the United States just recently Large turnout for Republican Fish Fry fundraiser by Wayne Watts See ‘Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast’ on Page 2 See ‘Republican Fish Fry’ on Page 6 Robert Armstrong Duncan Mayor
