Republicans rallied and enjoyed a night of food and speeches.
Local Republicans gathered at China Blossom Thursday night for the North Andover Republican Town Committee's annual Spring Fling.
The night featured several speakers, including all three Republican U.S. Senate candidates, both North Andover School Committee candidates, State Rep. Jim Lyons, State Sen. Bruce Tarr and Selectmen Rosemary Smedile.
The special guest of honor was Lt. First Class David Swarbrick of North Andover. A Lawrence firefighter and former member of the North Andover Fire Department, Swarbrick recently returned from Afghanistan after serving 11 tours and earing a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
The Spring Fling raises money each year for the Jim Gammie Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to graduating North Andover seniors.
