Annual Right to Life Pig Roast

Every year Mrs. Irene Napier (Crystal Lake) opens her home to those who believe that life is a divine gift.  The divine gift that is life.

Many people were there and it was a really good time.  From my vantage point there were more people here this year than last.  You can read about the event over at Cal Skinner’s McHenry County Blog – but I wanted to add some of my own photos:


The event was catered by Billy’s BBQ of Spring Grove. The pig was delicious.

The pig was absolutely delicious.  The event was catered by the fine folks at Billy’s BBQ in Spring Grove.  Yes I am shamelessly plugging this fantastic local eatery and yes it is that good.

There were many local folks there as well as public figures.  All for Republican candidates for governor were there.

    • State Senator Bill Brady
    • State Senator Kirk Dillard
    • State Treasurer Dan Rutherford
    • Businessman Bruce Rauner

Also in attendance was Bill Prim who is running to be your next sheriff in McHenry County.  You can visit his website at and he also has a Facebook page that I recommend you all take a look at as well.


Candidate for McHenry County Sheriff and myself.

On a personal note, it was so incredibly humbling to be recognized by Illinois State Representative David McSweeney.  Dave is doing just an amazing job representing us all here in the 52nd State Representative District.  For him to take 30 seconds and speak about me personally, point me out in the crowd, and watch everyone look at me was like nothing I have experienced before.  It was just amazing and completely unexpected.
