Edwin B. Winans Dinner on tap Friday

Lt. Gov. John Cherry and U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, will be the featured speaker at the Livingston Democrats' 27th annual Edwin B. Winans Dinner Friday May 7 at the Lakelands Golf and Country Club, 8760 Chilson Road, Hamburg Township, put on by the Livingston County Democratic Party.

The dinner will feature excellent food, conversation, a silent auction, a cash bar and a legal 50-50 raffle. As always, there are always some surprise special guests as election season ramps up.

The dinner is also the opportunity for the party to honor the hard work and dedication of its many hard-working volunteers over the past year with awards like the John D. Donohue Citizenship Award. The award is named after the last Democrat to serve on the Livingston County Board of Commissioners, who passed away while in office in 1996. Other awards that will be handed out include The Herb and Ruth Munzel Distinguished Service Award, the Chairman’s Special Recognition Award and the Unsung Heroes Award.

The fundraising dinner is named after Edwin B. Winans, Governor of Michigan in 1890-1893. He lived in Unadilla and Hamburg Townships and represented Livingston County as a State Representative, probate judge, and Governor. He is buried in the Hamburg Cemetery. Winans Lake is named after him.

Tickets now are $60 per person. Reserve now via Paypal. Or call (810) 229-4212 or email with your name and pay at the door. This is the party’s largest fundraiser, so come out and support the party and get ready for an exciting election season. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.
