LINCOLN — Grafton County Republicans have announced that US Senator Ted Cruz of Texas will be the keynote speaker at the Annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner on Sunday, March 15 at the Indian Head Resort in Lincoln.
Bruce Perlo, Grafton County Republican Chairman, said that he, and fellow Republicans, are delighted that Senator Cruz accepted their invitation to speak . "This will be an incredible evening for voters to listen to one of our country's leading conservative voices."
Senator Cruz is widely seen as a top-contender for the Republican nomination for President in 2016 if he chooses to run.
In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas.
Propelled by tens of thousands of grassroots activists across Texas, Ted's election has been described by the Washington Post as "the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds."
National Review has described Ted as "a great Reaganite hope," columnist George Will has described him as "as good as it gets," and the National Federation of Independent Business characterized his election as "critical to the small-business owners in [Texas, and], also to protecting free enterprise across America."

PLYMOUTH — On this Ash Wednesday, many Christians will head to church for a special blessing. But for those who do not have time, there is another alternative in Plymouth: A program called Ashes to Go.
Next Wednesday the Rev. Grace Burson, of the Epsicopal Church of the Holy Spirit will administer ashes on Main Street in Plymouth from 2 to 4 p.m.
During the ritual, Burson will recite a short prayer, and then press ashes against each person’s forehead, moving her thumb in the shape of a cross, and saying, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
The ashes come from burned palms from Palm Sunday service last year.
On the Christian calendar, Ash Wednesday begins Lent, the 40-day period of reflection and fasting that leads to Easter.
According to the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, Ashes to Go is about bringing spirit, belief, and belonging out from behind church doors, and into the places where people go every day.
New Hampshire's Episcopal bishop, the Rt. Rev. Robert Hirschfeld, along with two priests, will administer ashes in Eagle Square in Concord, and another Ashes to Go ceremony is scheduled to take place in Portsmouth.
