Letter to the Editor: Nash County Democrats to honor Charles Johnson


Thursday, September 7, 2017

On Saturday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m., the Nash County Democratic Party will pay “A Tribute to Charles Johnson.”

We will gather at The Impact Center on the Campus of Word Tabernacle Church, which is located at 821 Word Plaza in Rocky Mount, to celebrate his 96 years of life.

Please join us as we pay homage to a great Nash County resident and friend. No politics, no tension, no race to run … only friends, family and former co-workers getting together to honor “the man.”

We will introduce “sitting” elected officials (from all political parties that are in attendance) by name and announce the office they currently hold. NO candidate running for office will be announced as we feel this will make the event too political and take focus away from the ambiance of the evening.

Dinner tickets are $50 each and your check or money order should be made out to Nash County Democratic Party and mailed to P.O. Box 8393, Rocky Mount, NC 27804.

Please do not hesitate to contact Mary Wells at (252) 904-7921, Gwen Wilkins at (252) 883-4184; or Barbara High-Tyre at (252) 567-8295 for more information or if further assistance is needed.

We hope to see you on October 14th for this wonderful occasion as we gather to fellowship and honor a Nash County legend.
