Muscatine County Democrats will be hosting their 10th annual Oktoberfest fundraiser at the Strawberry Bed and Breakfast next Saturday, September 27th from 1 to 5 PM. Strawberry Farm Bed and Breakfast is located at 3402 Tipton Road in Muscatine. This is in the north part of Muscatine just south of the Hwy. 61 bypass on Tipton Road.

Hosts Karl and Linda Reichert began this tradition when their son Nate was running for the state House in 2004. Unfortunately, Nate did not survive the 2010 election, but the Reicherts continued their fundraiser for the local party.

This year’s headliners are Monica Vernon, Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor and Congressman Dave Loebsack from Iowa’s second district. Other local officeholders will also make an appearance. Donation levels from are suggested from $300 down to $25 are suggested. There is also a meal provided by A Guy and A Grill for a $10 donation.

The setting is bucolic and there will be lots of friendly Democrats around to trade stories with and some great candidates to listen to. If you are looking for a good time in a beautiful setting with some new and old friends next Saturday, come on down. And maybe you can persuade Karl to make you a root beer float!
