A long-time pillar of the Clinton County Republican Party, Harold H. Uible, was honored at the Central Committee’s annual beef roast Monday night at the Wilmington Savings Bank/Clinton County Senior Center.
“We want to take the opportunity to thank you and those individuals in the county who have made contributions over their lifetime and made an impact on the Clinton County Republican Party,” said Larry Droesch, executive chair of the party.
Clinton County Republicans have had some tough times and have had ups and downs, Droesch said. “We’re still powerful and we still make a difference. We’re well-known all over the state for being a very good and powerful Republican county.”
Roger Bennett, immediate past executive chairman of the party, presented Uible with a plaque. “It is an honor to have Harold H. Uible here,” Bennett said. “I’ve worked with him. He’s been a first-class individual.”
After the presentation, Uible said it was some 50 years ago when he became a Central Committee member. “That was one of the best things I ever did. The party has done much more for me than I will ever be able to do for the party.”
He called the Central Committee “the key to a grassroots organization.”
Also attending the dinner was Uible’s wife Jean, and two of their five children, John Uible and his wife Julie of Newark, and Mary Uible Crowson of Dublin, Ga. Their other children are Catherine Morgan of Glendale, Ariz., and Roberta King and Serena Uible, both of Sun City West, Ariz. Also seated at the family table was GG Walker who has worked for Uible for many years.
