From Victoria Pike
President, Adair Co. Democratic Women's Club

I was so pleased with the amazing turnout yesterday for out fundraiser for Governor Beshear. We certainly didn't expect it with the weather as gloomy as it was.

It certainly didn't start out well. I was running late after having to make a mad dash to Dr. King, my vet, with a newly born calf, sopping wet and covered in mud.

Then I called Cynthia Rowe and Pam Shearer, my trusty sidekicks and told them I would be a little late with the rest of the food. They had everything in tip top shape when I arrived and all went well from that point. These two ladies saved the day. Hats off to you, Cynthia and Pam.

I also, want to thank Jamie Maurath, our incoming new President of the Adair County Democratic Women's Club for taking part of her day to come and assist in serving the delicious chili prepared by the most prominent chili chef in these parts, Ms. Sandy Rogers. Thanks to her husband, Adair County Sixth District Magistrate Joe Rogers for helping her deliver it.

Our Democratic women sure know how to put on these events and I would like to thank each and every one of them who helped in any way to make our gathering for Governor Beshear such a great success.

In attendance yesterday were some of our longest serving members: Miss Frances Glasgow, Miss Louise Brock, Mrs. Martha Martin, and Miss Gertude Browning.

These women certainly are a remarkable bunch and continue to serve today to the best of their ability.

Miss Frances called me early that morning and asked what she could do to help. Miss Louise baked a jam cake for our yard sale last week which we immediately sold to Mr. Grover Gilpin. Mr. Grover was also in attendance yesterday. Miss Gertrude, who is my mother, helped me until midnight, getting things unloaded and washed up and put up from the event.

If they can serve at this point in their golden years, then the rest of us shouldn't have any problem with stepping up to serve as leaders in our party now.

Thanks to all those who attended and especially to Ms. Flanigan for bringing the children from Russell County to see the democratic process in action. Hopefully, they learned a valuable lesson and will want to participate in it in the near future.

The new Jaycees Pavillion meeting room is a real asset to our community. It has tables and chairs to seat about 60. We were fortunate enough to be one of the first groups to rent the facility for an event. It is decorated with pictures along the walls of past years members at various events. It is also equipped witih a kitchen area that makes serving a breeze.

We appreciate the Jaycees letting us be one of the first to have an event in their beautiful new room. -VICTORIA PIKE

Gov. Steve Beshear with his arm around Vicky Pike, an Adair County contact, who keeps building bigger crowds for the Governor's gatherings here. The last two events Pike has organized have been huge, by any party standard, but for Democrats they are reminders of the days when Happy Chandler came to town with the Bardstown Old Star Band for entertainment.

Adair County Democratic Party Chair Ben Loy welcomed Governor Steve Beshear and recognized visiting dignitaries to the rally for Governor Beshear at the Fairgrounds on Thursday. At left is Curt Yarberry, one of many standing around the edges of the packed and overflowing Adair County Jaycees Pavilion. Loy also has the distinction of being the first person to vote on the absentee voting machine in the Adair Annex, which, for a moment, put Democrat Steve Beshear at least briefly ahead in the voting in heavily Republican Adair County, with the tally at that moment: Governor Beshear 1; Independent Gatewood Galbraith 0; and Republican David Williams 0.
