There have also been rumors that some environmentalists may hold some sort of a protest at the dinner, Chiz said.
"The ACLU will be a clear winner here," Chiz said. "We encourage free speech. I intend to welcome anyone who comes."
The annual ACLU dinner will also recognize Upshur County residents who filed a lawsuit to try to stop the distribution of Bibles in the county's public schools.
In August, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals allowed the distribution in secondary schools, but not in elementary schools.
The dinner is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the University of Charleston Rotunda.
Cost is $40 and reservations may be made by calling the ACLU at 345-9246.
