MENIFEE – The Constitutional Association, based in Menifee, held its second annual anniversary dinner Saturday, July 15, at the Wildomar Elks Lodge. The dinner theme was “Make America Constitutional again.” Tickets sales surpassed the previous year. Held with the hope of uniting others through the Constitution, the dinner brought together local residents who are active in contacting Washington and Sacramento to make sure their political voices are heard.

Keynote speaker Tim Donnelly, a 2014 gubernatorial candidate, spoke about his book “Patriot not Politician.” Also presenting was Orange County radio personality, Double X, who gave a history of President George Washington’s farewell address.

The master of ceremonies was KMET 1490-AM radio personality and author, Douglas V. Gibbs. In 2014, Gibbs was awarded a certificate from the state Senate for his local efforts regarding educating the public about the principles and philosophies of the Constitution. More information regarding his free classes can be found on the website www.douglasvgibbs.com.

Along with ticket sales, an opportunity drawing and live auction, the dinner raised over $6,000 for the Constitutional Association.

The association’s next event is the monthly dinner 5 p.m. Aug. 5, at Merna’s Cafe and Grill, 26850 Cherry Hills Blvd., in Sun City. Guests are welcome to attend.
