Prominent northeast Republican leaders will meet tonight for their first annual dinner.
The guest of honor will be former Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court Frank Williams.
Williams, an Abraham Lincoln scholar, was also president of the Abraham Lincoln Association, a group dedicated to preserving the memory of Lincoln by celebrating his anniversary each year.
The dinner will include a discussion of Lincoln, “A Study of Courage.”
There will also be an opportunity to meet the 2014 Republican gubernatorial candidates: Tom Foley, John McKinney, Mark Boughton, Joe Visconti, and Toni Boucher.
Candidates for Connecticut’s Secretary of State Peter Lumaj and Lieutenant Governor Penny Bacchiochi are among the guest list for the dinner.
The northeast Republicans will eat at Wrights Mill Farm in Canterbury at 6 p.m.
