“We are hoping for a strong turnout,” Haigh said. “Kay is the Lt. Gov. for all Alabamians. She doesn’t just represent Republicans.”

Haigh explained that Ivey’s visit should be interesting because she has devoted much of her life to public service and has a wide background in state government, as well as having been an educator.

A meet and greet for Ivey will begin at 11:15 a.m. next Wednesday with lunch to follow. Haigh said the event will end at 1 p.m.

Although there is no charge for the lunch of ham, green beans, creamed corn, green salad and dessert, Haigh said PCRW will accept donations that will go toward the organizations scholarship fund for local high school seniors.

Alabama GOP Chairman Bill Armistead will also make remarks at next week’s meeting.
