The Grand Island Republican Women’s Club held its annual picnic on June 12, hosted by Lana and Tom Redell. The main theme was “Get out to vote on Primary Day--June 25!” 2019 is the first year for a June primary election (instead of September) in New York. Informative speeches, great food and engaging conversation were enjoyed by all. Auctioneer duties were ably handled by Pete Marston, assisted by Tom Digati with Barb Nowakowski serving as cashier for the much-anticipated annual event.
