GOP to present ‘Proud to Be an American’

SEQUIM — Former Sequim students Jonathan Hay and Hannah Fritz will speak at “Proud to Be An American,” a special event presented by the Republican Women of Clallam County, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.

The free event will be at the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula at 400 W. Fir St. Donations will be accepted.

Hay works in Hollywood as a producer and director. His current projects include vice president of production for “The Daily Wire,” “The Ben Shapiro Sunday Specials” and “PragerU” videos for YouTube.

He’s worked on such project as “The Amazing Spider Man,” “The Arroyo,” shown in theatres, and directed the recent documentary “Apollo 11: What We Saw,” organizers said.

He also worked on production for “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” among other shows, they said.

Fritz has been serving in the White House under President Donald Trump for the past year, and was just recently sworn in as special assistant to the Secretary of Labor.

Two local singers will perform. Ashleigh Victoria will sing “God Bless America” and Melannie Johnson will sing “Proud to be an American.”

The event, which will be emceed by David Lotzgesell, is presented in conjunction with the Clallam County Republican Party and the Young Republicans of Clallam County.

Because of constriction on Fir Street, the best route is to drive north from Washington Street on North Fourth Street, directly to the Boys & Girls Club parking lot.

Parking is available around the building, in the school parking lot to the east, and in the field behind the Boys & Girls Club.
