>>> BIG DINNER AT NO COST TO 100 STERLING SENIORS
I visited with Senior citizens last night at an assisted and independent living facility in Sterling Park.

Thank you to the management, the seniors and Dulles Rotary.

>>> GILMORE WINS, JEFF IS NEW GOP CHAIRMAN

Together with 3 of my children and wife Sheila, I traveled to Richmond, Va. with the Sterling Republican delegation earlier on Saturday. The Sterling delegation is the largest group in 40 years and is keeping with the overall rebirth of civic excitement in Sterling. Most of Sterling supported Bob Marshall and Jeff Frederick. Bob lost, and we congratulate Jim Gilmore on becoming the Senate nominee. Gilmore has pledged to work for Sterling. Jeff Frederick won his race for GOP Chairman. We salute John Hager for his many personal sacrifices. Congressman Frank Wolf met with Sterling Americans also. Admission was free.

I have told you about one free thing for 100 Seniors, now let me tell you about some 9 free things for you and other Sterling Americans: free admisssions, and giant discounts in Sterling.
