Rick Crawford's HQ Open House, Feb 13, 2010

When we arrived at Rick Crawford's Campaign Headquarters, Jim and I were early. Despite that fact, Rick pulled up a chair and proceeded to discuss politics and his plans for his campaign, and what he hoped to accomplish once elected. We sat and talked for about half an hour while his helpers scurried about placing the finishing touches on last minute preparations.
One of the first things I noticed when entering the hall, was this selection of family photos. Around the photos are plaques with Scripture written on them. If you would like to read the plaques, click the photo to enlarge. If that still isn't large enough click ctrl and the + key at the same time. Repeat until the photo is large enough for your viewing. To decrease the photo size, click ctrl and the - key.

Crawford for Congress signs covered two walls, balloons added to the festive air. The front of the building was festooned with large campaign signs. Seen on Rick's website (go here and scroll down to the Open House date), is a big muscle truck outfitted to tow a 5th wheel RV or some such equipment, which is also loaded with Rick's campaign signs.
 The crowd begins to arrive, soon filling the hall.
Benny Speaks, 1st Congressional Committee Chairman
Nelda Speaks.
Campaign Manager Jonah Shumate gets our attention, announcing Rick is about to speak.
Rick addresses the group, outlining what he hopes to accomplish once elected. He also detailed
some of the challenges that face the campaign. One of the engines that runs any campaign is
money. As with any campaign its success depends upon donations. Rick needs donations if he
is going to succeed.  He asks for volunteers as well.
 Rick takes time to answers questions from the crowd.
Rick asks Stacy, his lovely wife, to say a few words. The audience loves Stacy!
Rick takes time to mingle with the crowd, answering more questions.
With backs to us, our own Lloyd Clark, Rick (side view) and Dorothy Crockett. 
I do not know the other people.
Our own Kim Moseley comes traipsing through the crowd loaded up
with Marisa and donuts. Lloyd appears to be in conversation.

Kim and Marisa.
 Rick's speech holds the crowd in rapt attention. The man writing is a newspaper reporter, I believe.
