The Moniteau County Republican Club met last Thursday for the first time since September.
The group elected to forgo its regular meeting in November due to the amount of coronavirus cases in the county. Though the group was able to meet last week, the pandemic will continue to affect upcoming club events; the group decided to postpone its annual Lincoln Day until June 5.
The event will still take place at United Church of Christ in California, and plans as of last week's meeting were to continue with the event's dinner and auction. The move follows suit with the state GOP's decision to postpone its Lincoln Day.
The ticket price to attend is $25 in advance, or $35 at the door.
Since this event will be pushed back, the club won't have its usual picnic in July. Instead, the month of July would include a regular meeting. The club may move the picnic back as well, potentially hosting it Sept. 16. The group agreed to revisit that idea at a future club meeting.
In other business, the group heard from Moniteau County Sheriff Tony Wheatley, who shared some updates on the county and legislation affecting law enforcement that is currently making its way through Missouri's legislature.
The group also heard from Rich Green, who last week announced his candidacy for mayor of California.
The Moniteau County Republican Club's next regular meeting is set for March 18.
