Campaign HQ Opened and Cleaned

013On Saturday, July 18th, a team of Waynesboro Republicans opened and cleaned the campaign headquarters. 

The location is again at the Willow Oak Plaza on West Broad Street. However, the storefront is different. It is in the same section of the Plaza as our previous headquarters, but the new site is much more attractive. 

Besides a well-decorated front room, designed for customers, there is an extremely large rear room that is ideally suited for Committee meetings and campaign rallies. 

Helping us put things in order, were Delegate Dickie Bell and his wife Anne. 

Jess Hancock vacuumed the carpet. The photo on the right shows Jess and the rear room.
