A slew of high-level candidates are expected to attend the Democratic annual Pasma-Peck Dinner this weekend, set to go off at the Eagles Club on Friday during Festival Days.
Montana Superintendent Denise Juneau is scheduled to speak. Attorney general candidates Jesse Laslovich and Pam Bucy also are expected.
Kim Gillan and Dave Strohmaier, running for the Democratic candidacy for the U. S. House, also are expected. Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., is leaving his seat to challenge freshman Democratic Sen. Jon Tester.
The Pasma-Peck dinner, named after long-time Havre Democratic leaders Ray Peck and Jim Pasma, starts with a cocktail hour at 4:30 p. m. Friday followed by a prime-rib dinner at 5:30 p. m.
Long-time Hi-Line legislator Greg Jergeson will speak in memory of Peck, a state representative from 1982 to 1998 and prominent Democratic leader, who died at age 84 in May.
Entry to the fundraiser costs $20.
