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.

(Last Updated October, 2015)




Events, elections, ballots arriving ... so much to do, so little time. We all need to make time to help our candidates win by doorbelling, sign waving and talking to everyone about how great our candidates are. A last minute contribution would be welcomed, too. When your ballots arrive, vote early and mail fast! 


Look through the many special events coming up to make a reservation now for the ones you can attend. This busy Fall Season is just a rehearsal for 2016!


As hostilities heat up from Syria to Afghanistan, remember we still have troops in all the war zones. Please keep them in your prayers.





     Help Teri Hickel win in the 30th LD.      Contact http://terihickel.com/
