(Karri Bragg) – You’ve already heard about Citizen Outreach Foundation’s new Reagan Legacy Project, an effort to name a Nevada mountain peak after President Reagan. Now, national news outlets are picking up our story!
On Monday, AOL News feed featured a story by Steve Friess about Reagan commemorations, highlighting our efforts here in Nevada.
They’ve already named an airport, an aircraft carrier, a courthouse, a medical center, at least two post offices, several schools and more than two dozen roads for him. A McDonald’s in Alabama where he once ate even boasts a bust of him.
Yet that’s not enough for the most devout supporters of Ronald Reagan. A year from this coming Saturday would have been the former president’s 100th birthday. To honor him, his admirers are fanning out around the nation hoping to win another one for the Gipper. And another. And another. Their goal: Get at least one significant landmark in every state named for the nation’s 40th president, who left office in 1989 and died in 2004.
The same day, the Washington Times picked up on our story on their “Inside the Beltway” feature. Check it out.
And we’ve been getting calls from other interested national media outlets. We’ll update you when those stories are published, as well.
It looks like Nevada’s Reagan Legacy Project is about to take the nation by storm – and we officially kickoff the effort tonight on what would have been President Reagan’s 99th birthday. Are you ready to join in the effort to leave a tremendous and lasting mark in our state, for future generations to enjoy?
Lincoln has a mountain, Jefferson has a mountain, even Monroe has a mountain. Isn’t it about time President Ronald Reagan was honored in this fashion?
It is not too late to buy your tickets for tonight’s Reagan Birthday Party & Cocktail Reception at the M Resort & Casino in Las Vegas from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
Oh, and we’re told that a VERY special surprise guest might be joining us this evening.
You do NOT want to miss this celebration!
In honor of what would have been his 99th birthday, we are selling tickets to this event for only $99 a piece! Tickets may be purchased online by clicking here.
Be part of this effort to honor President Reagan’s memory in our state. It is imperative to us that we preserve his legacy so that future generations of Nevadans can look up at Mount Reagan one day and ask, “Mom, Dad, who is Reagan?”
