Republicans Rock the 4th of July

Thanks to all the volunteers who worked hard to create a successful float in the Ames Fourth of July parade.  Click here to see a photo album on our Facebook page.

Scroll down the page to see our float playing a certain song that causes a certain college mascot to dance.  Titles not mentioned due to copyright/non-endorsement issues.   ;-)

Volunteers Needed For July 4th Parade!

This Friday, the Story County GOP needs your help! We need people to walk in the Ames July 4 parade. The parade begins at 11 am, and we will meet at9 am to get the parade set up. Ames has asked each entry to pick a decade; the GOP float will be partying like it’s 1984, complete with a Ronald Reagan cardboard stand up and 1980′s tunes blasting from the float. We need lots of individuals to carry poles donning our candidates’ signage, toss candy to adoring throngs of children, and hand out 5,000 notepads for Jeremy Davis’s state senate campaign.
Please let Jeff Ortiz know if you will be able to help out this Friday morning.  You can contact him on his Facebook page.
