147th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner in pictures and videos

On March 20, 2022, after a two-year hiatus, the Queens Village Republican Club hosted our 147th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner, a magnificent celebration of Freedom and the Party of Lincoln, Reagan and Trump, together with 300 patriotic friends.

Our club’s dinner committee put a great deal of sweat and toil into it, and the fruit of our labor was that the attendees left in high spirits, energized, and motivated to go out, organize, build our party, and elect Republicans! We’ve been getting rave reviews from the attendees. Here are the pictures and videos that tell the story.

He gave an enlightening audio-visual presentation on his entirely new type of undercover journalism. His message is to be brave and do something! Here is the video of O’Keefe’s entire presentation.
