 State Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black
 Visits Gilmer County as guest of the
 Gilmer County Republican Party

         Cartecay Vineyards in Ellijay
    was the setting for the August 5
    GOP event with Agriculture
    Commissioner Gary Black. Mr.
    Black addressed the gathering
    of close to 100 people on the
    Georgia Grown program, the
    responsibilities of his office, and
    initiatives he has worked on
    since becoming Commissioner in 2010. Attendees
    also enjoyed a feast with dishes made with locally
    grown products. Gilmer GOP thanks Cartecay
    Vineyards owner Larry Lykins for providing the
    venue; the many members of the agriculture
    community in Gilmer County who took time from
    busy schedules to come out in support of Mr. Black,
    and provided food and other contributions; and  the
    many GOP volunteers who helped with everything
    from beverages to picture-taking.

        We may not all be of the same political
    persuasion (and that includes all us Republicans)
    but we can agree that a State Commissioner visiting
    here is an important event, and we can make it a
    success and an opportunity to get to know others in
    the community better.   Thank you for being there.

        More pictures from the event have been posted
    to the Gilmer County Republican Party Facebook
    page. Credit for these great pictures goes to
    Rebecca Landau and Jim Fox.

          There are a number of events coming up in the
    next couple of months, so please check back on

    very often because we don't like to clutter your IN

    there is a very low Open rate. Part of this could be
    due to the fact that the emails are going to your

    fix that problem. Our last email was sent out
