The Republican Party monthly breakfast will be Saturday, Aug. 1, at the FCRP Event Center, 174 Glynn Street North in Fayetteville.

The speaker is state Sen. Mike Crane, a Republican from the 28th District, currently serving his third two-year term. In 2014 he won re-election with the largest majority of any Republican in the history of the 28th District despite never having run for public office before 2010. He will begin his talk at 9 a.m.

The event is open to the public, and a continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. for a $5 charge.
