Going out to eat "country style."
Governor Dave Heineman and his wife, Sally Ganem, traveled the dirt roads of Jefferson County Monday evening to attend a potluck supper at Mark and Jan Knobel's rural residence northwest of Fairbury.
They were special guests at a fundraising event for the Jefferson County Republican Women. Approximately 80 people sat down with the governor for supper and the chance to quiz him afterward.
"We are very happy to host the governor and his wife Sally, and I think we have a very good turn out," Bev Schwab of the Jefferson County Republican women said upon the Governors arrival.
Even though the event was held at the Mark and Jan Knobel residence, Jan took little credit.
"I didn't do much other than clean the house," Knobel said. "Kim Allen, Bev Schwab and Rose Wiegert headed up the event."
