Clayton Republicans replace ‘boil’ with pot-luck luncheon

The Clayton County Republican Party’s “Low Country Boil” scheduled to take place later this month, has been called off — for now — and replaced with a lower-key gathering, according to a spokesperson for the group.

The Aug. 27 event had been advertised in fliers posted in recent weeks at events such as Clayton County Board of Commissioners meetings. Geralyn Daniel, the group’s public relations chairperson, said Wednesday that there had been some issues getting the event “off the ground,” including a scheduling conflict with a state Republican Party event expected to take place in Middle Georgia during the same weekend.

“The main issue [was] that the state GOP is having a Fish Fry event in Perry on the same day,” said Daniel in a written statement. “Rather than being in conflict with that, we chose to plan another event, hopefully in the next few months ... Since we already have the firehouse museum reserved [however], we [the Clayton County Republican Party] will be having a pot-luck get together instead.”

The newly-scheduled pot-luck luncheon will take place Aug. 27, from 3 p.m., to 6 p.m., at the Jonesboro Fire House Museum and Community Center, at 103 Mill Street, in Jonesboro.
