Brewer, challenging 4-term incumbent in the Republican primary, will be at the Praire Pines Retirement Center for a meet-and-greet with area residents from 2:30-4:30.
A 36-year member of the military before retiring in December, Brewer was diagnosed a short time later with leukemia and began a 6-week course of treatment in Lincoln that limited his campaigning to that part of the state.
With his treatments completed and a prognosis for full recovery, he is now resuming a full campaign schedule.
Brewer is a member of the Oglala Sioux tribe and grew up on a ranch north of Gordon. His military career included multiple deployments to Afghanistan, where he suffered serious injuries from a roadside bomb.
