FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 18, 2011 Contact: Chris Buck, Chairman Dover Republican Committee (603) 865-1918 Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to pay tribute to veterans on Memorial Day

Dover, NH - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will be the special guest of the Dover and Strafford County Republican Committees this Memorial Day. The May 30th picnic will be held at the Hellenic Center in Dover, rain or shine. Tickets are free for veterans and are $10 for non veterans. Hot dogs, hamburgers and sides will be served. “The Congresswoman wishes to honor those veterans that paid the ultimate sacrifice,” said Bachmann spokesman Jeff Chidester, himself a veteran. “As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is often briefed on the contributions of our military men and women, which regularly lead to actionable intelligence and ultimately make us all safer.” The event kicks off at 11:30 am and will include a flag ceremony, an invocation, singing of the national anthem and other patriotic songs, and opportunities to speak with the Congresswoman. “The goal is to keep this from being an overly political event,” said Dover GOP Chairman Chris Buck. “This is not designed to be a fundraiser. It’s just a chance for like minded men and women to express their patriotism and gratitude to our military families.” Members of the press that are planning on attending are asked to observe the solemnity of the day and to be credentialed in advance. Tickets are available at Veterans are asked to RSVP with Chris Buck at 603-865-1918 or ###
