Zoeller to speak at Lincoln Dinner

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller will serve as the keynote speaker at this year's Clay County Lincoln Day Dinner.

The dinner will take place Saturday, April 18, at the Center Point United Methodist Church. The dinner is open to the public and will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the door. Reservations may be made by calling 448-8081.

Zoeller serves as the chief legal officer of the state of Indiana. He and his staff represent the state of Indiana in lawsuits, in which the state's interests are at stake. Zoeller is a native of New Albany, Ind., and previously served as the chief deputy to former Indiana Attorney General Steve Carter.

Zoeller and his staff work to protect the interests of all Hoosiers through two primary functions, including legal services and consumer services. The activities of the attorney general's office aren't confined within the statehouse.

Clay County Republican Central Committee Chairman Sharon Koehler is hopeful many will attend the event.

"While this is not an election year, we hope people will take advantage of this opportunity to talk with elected officials from the state, county, city and township levels and find out what is going on and ways they can get involved," Koehler said.

Koehler added this year is the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth.

"We are delighted that, in addition to Greg Zoeller speaking at our dinner, Abe Lincoln, himself will be there to visit with us," Koehler said. "It should be a fun event. We are reserving tables of eight for $200 in honor of Lincoln's 200th birthday and hope people will celebrate with us."
