The Shelby Area Democratic Club will soon hold its 7th annual Truman-Kennedy Society Breakfast. The event will take place on Saturday, May 31 at 9 a.m. The location will be the social rooms at First United Church of Christ, 23 Church Street, Shelby.

The keynote speaker will be the Honorable John P. O’Donnell, a judge on the Cuyahoga Co. Court of Common Pleas. He was elected first to the bench 2002 and reelected in 2006 and 2012. The Cuyahoga County court is one of Ohio’s busiest, and during that time Judge O’Donnell has presided over scores of jury trials in felony criminal cases and civil lawsuits.

Judge O’Donnell is a candidate this fall for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court.

“It’s an honor to host a public servant of Judge O’Donnell’s caliber,” stated club president Garland John Gates. “It’s also an honor to have a statewide candidate visit Shelby.”

During the breakfast gathering, the society will present 2 awards. The first is the “Give ‘Em Hell” Award, which reminds one of the dogged truthfulness of Pres. Harry S. Truman. The Profiles in Courage Award, reminiscent of Pres. John Kennedy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, goes to someone who holds to his or her convictions despite the ramifications.

Reservations are needed for the breakfast. Detailed information is available online at www.ShelbyAreaDems.blogspot.co m or by calling 419-347-3337.
