Come to the Oak Conference - Saturday, September 11, 2021 at 12 Noon
On September 11th the Coalition of Republican Counties will host the
second Oak Conference in Jackson, Michigan. At 12 noon we will start at the Birthplace of the Republican Party Historical Marker commemorating the idea that created our Party. We will visit and talk informally, with maybe a few impromptu historical comments, and then go to Ella Sharp Park to engage in a discussion on the issues of our time.
This is an informal meeting to take time to enjoy and think about the Republican Party. Please join us.
