“Potluck to introduce candidates”
From Knik Arm Courier, Aug. 3, 1960:
A potluck dinner will provide an introduction of the Democratic candidates to the residents of Chugiak. The folksy way to meet the aspirants to office will take place on Friday, Aug. 5 at the Chugiak Carnival Hall at Mile 21.
George Allen, chairman of the Democratic party of Chugiak predicts this will be “the largest group to attend a political meeting in Chugiak.”
Those planning to attend are requested to bring either hot dishes, salads or desserts.
Mr. Allen requested that food be brought early, and lots of it, as the candidates have been working hard campaigning and are very hungry.
