Some of the highlights for us in 2011 were: Sixteen NEW Members, New Club Logo, New Website (prestonwestrepublicanwomen.org), Caring for America Project (donated $1900 to the USO Hospitality Suite at DFW Airport for the troops & their families). We received the NFRW Gold Award & the TFRW John Goodwin Tower Award of Excellence!
Our Christmas party at the lovely home of Hon. Ann & Fred Margolin was wonderful! Thanks to Carole Wills, Junene Penland & others for all their work to make it such a great party! Hon. Ann Margolin did an outstanding job installing the new officers! Approximately one hundred of us were there to enjoy the good food & fellowship!
As Americans we have so much for which to be grateful: our families, our friends, our homes, our freedoms and our history. These are all reasons we work to ensure the best people are elected to serve in our government. We as Republican women, take seriously our responsibilities in these exceptional times. OBAMA is beatable and this is our moment to make it happen! Talk politics to your friends and invite them to visit one of our meetings. Many women have never been asked to join a Republican Women’s Club!
Six of us attended the TFRW Convention in Ft. Worth in November. We heard from many speakers: Hon. Borah Van Dormolen, Hon. Joe Strauss, Hon. Jerry Patterson, Hon. Roger Williams, Hon. David Dewhurst, Hon. Susan Combs, Hon. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Hon. Elizabeth Ames Jones, Hon. Greg Abbott, Hon. Tom Leppert, Hon. John Cornyn, Hon. Todd Staples & many others! A good time was had by all.
