First Lady Yumi Hogan Keynote Speaker Calvert Lincoln-Reagan Dinner
Calvert County Republicans are pleased to announce that First Lady Yumi Hogan will be the Honored Guest and Keynote Speaker at their Annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner on June 7, 2018 at 6 p.m. at The Hall at Huntingtown, 4030 Old Town Road, Huntingtown, MD. Calvert County Republican Central Committee Chairman Ella Ennis said, “This will be a wonderful evening.
We are honored to have Maryland’s First Lady Yumi Hogan join us.”
Yumi Hogan is the first Korean-American First Lady in the United States. She is a first-generation Korean-American, an accomplished artist, and an adjunct professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her artwork, created on traditional Hanji paper with Sumi ink and mixed media, has been featured in art shows and museums in Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, South Korea and more, including an exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Mrs. Hogan grew up on a farm in the South Korean countryside as the youngest of eight children. She immigrated to the United States over 30 years ago, and raised her three daughters, Kim, Jaymi and Julie in Howard County.
Following Governor Hogan’s diagnosis with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2015 and their family’s battle with the disease, Mrs. Hogan has become a vocal advocate for cancer awareness and has devoted much of her time to visiting Marylanders battling cancer, especially children, and their families. Through her work teaching art classes to patients with cancer and people with disabilities, Mrs. Hogan has become a strong proponent of art therapy and the positive impact it can have on health and wellbeing.
The menu for dinner at this all-you-can-eat buffet catered by Thompson Seafood will include Southern Maryland fare of Stuffed Ham, Crab Balls, Fried Chicken and shrimp with all of the fixings. The evening will also feature an exciting Silent Auction for attendees’ enjoyment.
The Honorable Mark Fisher, Delegate (L.D. 27C – Calvert County) will be the Master of Ceremonies. Delegate Jerry Clark (L.D. 29C – So. Calvert-Mid-St. Mary’s Counties) will report on the just completed legislative session.
The Republican Man and Woman of the Year Awards will be announced and a Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to the family of Jesse and Ruth Reid, long-time Republican civic activists, as a memorial to their service to the community and the Republican Party.
