Reagan Day in Maine!

Thanks to the great efforts of Mary Adams in the great state of Maine, President Reagan's birthday was celebrated in style (jelly beans included!) at the State House in Augusta. Despite heavy snow, dozens gathered for a press conference to celebrate the life and legacy of one of our nation's greatest presidents. It was truly a wonderful event and we hope several states will emulate this in the future! Thank you Mary for inviting the RRLP to celebrate Reagan Day in Maine!

Below are photos of the event. Check out for additional pictures from the press conference!
