  • SEP17Dwight, IL Harvest Days Parade 2017Division: Chapter
    Downtown Dwight, IL
    Since there is no official chapter in Livingston County, Claire Ball and Steve Dutner will be marching in the parade purely with our campaigns and any neighboring chapters that want to jump in!

    This parade is also known as the famous Basset Hound "waddle" as hundreds of Basset Hounds from all around the state (and even some out of state) kick off the parade.

    We will be in the staging area at noon, which is right off the main highway when you arrive in downtown Dwight. Feel free to join us and help us carry banners and hand out candy.

    We will all grab lunch afterwards together at the Old Route 66 restaurant right off of the main downtown road. Hope to see you there!
  • SEP21DuPage Libertarians Monthly Meeting Sept. 2017Division: Chapter
    The American Tap Pub & Grill @ 701 W. Lake St., Addison, IL
    This particular meeting of the DuPage Libertarians will also serve as our 2017 DuPage County Central Committee Convention, in accordance with our new state and chapter bylaws. So what does this mean?

    It means if you are registered as a Precinct Committeeman for the Libertarian Party of Illinois, then you can vote for your Congressional District Representative at this meeting. The elected representative will then serve a short term from now through the state convention next year in March, at which point our March chapter meeting will again serve as our 2018 convention where we will vote again for district representative, albeit this time they will serve a full 4 year term.

    If this is all complicated, don't worry! It will all be explained in glorious detail at the next meeting, where you can eat nachos and drink your favorite adult beverage while we go through the proceedings, which won't take very long.

    We will also discuss upcoming events, including the start of the new gun show season at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in October, and upcoming events in our county and around the state. You won't want to miss this.

    As always, the meetings are free, all ages, and open to the public. Meeting officially starts at 7pm, social hour begins at 6pm. Hope to see you there...

  • OCT07Tri-Counties ChillifestDivision: Chapter
    Christian County Courthouse Square in Taylorville
    We're excited about this event! We proposed earlier this year that we wanted to participate in one of the chili cookoff competitions and we still want to go through with it.

    Would be a great event for our statewide candidates to participate in as part of the competition and reach out to potential voters for next year.

    You can contact Chairman Jake Leonard at (217) 630-2107 or via email chairman@tricountylibertarians.org for more information.
