Democrats of Rim Country annual picnic


What a wonderful event and picnic held in Rumsey Park on May 19. It was very nice to visit with old associates and meet new ones as a community. Participants brought food to share and enjoyed each other’s company and conversation while waiting for the invited guest to arrive.

In walked survivor Gabby Gifford with her husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, who is running for U.S. Senate in 2020. It was the highlight of my day to see Gabby walking and greeting people — so personable and gracious.

I want to thank everyone involved in making the event a success and getting the opportunity to view courage in the flesh. What an awesome day in Payson!
