Are you willing to visit voters at their doors to advocate our GOP nominees and find out what the voters are thinking? We have a special summer canvass pamphlet available for those who are willing to take a few blocks ... and some of the candidates are happy to walk with you. So let me know if you're on board to help with targeted precincts. 

We also still have an envelope addressing project underway, looking for volunteers. And I'm hoping soon to set up a voter registrar training session, so let me know if you're willing to take on this civic duty.

Our summer hours continue to be flexible, so call before you come in - regardless of our normal, posted hours - to be sure someone is here. 

Tomorrow night (Thursday, July 31, 5:30-7:30) brings the Buffalo Grove fundraiser for State Treasurer nominee Tom Cross. Tickets are $100/person or $150/couple for hors d'oeuvres and drinks at The Continental, 788 S Buffalo Grove Road. RSVP via 224/730-9616.

Thursday, Aug. 14, is Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. Here's the link for further information: http://www.agr.state.il.us/isf/events/RepDay.htm.

Mark your calendar now for the 8th Congressional District GOP Leadership Conference from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, at Chandler's Chophouse, 401 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg.

And let me know if you need training to become a voter registrar or to refresh the training you may have received previously.

Thanks to those of you who helped me register voters at Luther Village last Friday; it was quite a successful effort, and we'll be seeking to do this at some of the other senior housing complexes in the township as the summer unfolds. Stay tuned.

If you would like to become a voter registrar or to brush up your registrar training, please let me know by reply e-mail so I can begin the process of setting up a registrar training session. 

We also have a mailing project underway, so let me know if you have good handwriting and are willing to help with addressing some envelopes. 

Our Republican Women of Wheeling Township had a great picnic Saturday at the home of the club president Penny Pullen and her sister Pam Reed near Hersey High School. Though much of the Chicago area was socked with heavy rain, Penny & Pam's patio had experienced only a sprinkle in the morning, and the afternoon was quite pleasant for the 50+ volunteers and candidates who enjoyed good food & inspiring speeches. Candidates who came & spoke: State Rep. David Harris, Cong. Bob Dold, State Rep. nominees Leslie Munger & Bill Grossi, judicial nominee Jim Pieczonka and Water Reclamation Dist. nominee Jim Parrilli, plus a special message from Char Foss-Eggemann, my newly elected colleague as Maine Twp. GOP Committeeman. 

Though I am still listing office hours at the foot of our weekly memo, please realize: Summer hours are much more flexible at HQ. Call first if you're coming in, to be sure someone is actually "on duty."
