Puget Sound Republican Event Calendar

     The Puget Sound Republican Event Calendar is not maintained or sponsored by Eastside Republican Club, and is not an official communication from any Republican Party organization; it is a volunteer effort by Lois Gustafson and Toby Nixon, based on information submitted by calendar subscribers, and is posted here by permission. The events on the calendar are not necessarily sponsored or endorsed by ERC, but we are providing this archive of the most recent Event Calendar for the benefit of ERC members. If you would like to submit an event to the calendar, or to receive calendar updates by email, contact Lois at lygus@msn.com.

Republican Friends,


April events offer an opportunity for each of us to be involved with friends who care about our future, whether local or national. We can’t sit back any longer, let’s all work for a better America.


Lois Gustafson  lygus@msn.com



PS: I have a special request:

As you know, I coordinate support for our troops deployed in the War on Terror. Currently I have a generous donation of Xbox360 games from Microsoft but I need consoles to send with them. If you, or someone you know,  has a 360 collecting dust, please contact me so we can get it to our troops. lygus@msn.com  Boredom during downtime is a terrible enemy of  the soldiers.                                                                          Thank you! Lois
