Tickets Still Available for Old Lyme Republicans’ Annual Picnic Tomorrow

OLD LYME — The Old Lyme Republican Town Committee’s (OLRTC) annual picnic returns this year Sunday, Sept. 12, with a festive and family-friendly barbecue from 3 to 6 p.m. at picturesque Griswold Point.

“Sunset on the Sound,” the committee’s annual picnic fundraiser, features a barbecue feast, live music provided by the String of Pearls band, and a silent auction.

Visit with your neighbors, meet the endorsed candidates for this November’s town elections, and hear from local and state officials and dignitaries.

Special invited guests include Mike France, Republican Congressional candidate for the 2nd District; Themis Klarides, former Connecticut House minority leader; Ben Proto, Connecticut GOP chair; and Bob Stefanowski, 2018 Republican gubernatorial candidate. It’s a delightful way to spend a late summer afternoon, with a view of the Sound.

Tickets for “Sunset on the Sound” are $50 per person, and may be purchased at the OLRTC website; or call Tammy Hinckley at 860-598-4375. Families are welcome — children 13 and under are admitted free.

This is a COVID-sensitive, outdoor event; the picnic will be held rain or shine.
