Another beautiful day on the campaign trail in Wisner. Lydia is pictured holding new friend “Princess” and her owner, Russell Kind. This backyard garden includes a pond and waterfall surrounded by flowers, shrubs and trees.
Lydia made a stop along the campaign trail at the Stanton County home of new friends and Brasch for Legislature supporters Dallas and Eva Heckens. The entire campaign staff was invited in for delicious orange birthday cake that Dallas bakes himself every year. Lydia and volunteers loved the cake so much they plan to bake and serve it at the November 2nd Brasch Victory Celebration!
Lydia, Dallas & Eva Heckens:

Another magnificent Lydia Brasch fundraiser was held in Thurston County on Thursday September 9th at Pender, NE. A beautiful September evening surrounded by emerald greens at the Twin Creeks Golf Club was the perfect setting for a spectacular spread of mouth-watering beef sandwiches, delicious salads and dazzling desserts. Sounds of laughter and smiles were abundant among the red, white and blue joy filled room. Despite several community event conflicts, dozens of friends and strong supporters attended and enjoyed the fun while others sent words of support and contributions ahead in their absence. See the Thurston County fundraiser slideshow.
Recognized were Naomi Brummond, Thurston County Chairwoman, along with Pauline Westerhold, Margaret Reppert, Dorothy Krusemark, Susie Lorensen, Mary Bruns, Lea Ann Tremayne and Ashley Tremayne Christensen. These women worked to create the extraordinary magic and success of this event. Several of the men attending were also named and recognized as special executive assistants to the women in an evening so very well done.
Roger and Lea Ann Tremayne were Fundraiser benefactors. Kenny and Naomi Brummond were Fundraiser sponsors along with the Thurston County GOP sponsorship of the evening. Supporters were recognized for their months of dedication and work in many District 16 events. Heartfelt appreciation was extended to everyone for the success of the fundraiser and their continued and growing support until November 2!
