By Judy McCarty

Navajo Canyon Republican Women will resume their regular meeting schedule Tuesday, Feb. 9, as Jim Lacy, author of “Taxifornia,” will discuss the major economic challenges facing California that threaten to turn the state into one big version of bankrupt Detroit.

Charging higher and higher taxes to attempt to cover higher and higher spending is not working anywhere. Lacy’s insightful remarks will be the fuel to ignite NCRWF members’ passion in this election year. Once again, our luncheon meeting will take place at the Brigantine Restaurant in La Mesa. Check-in time for the 11 a.m. meeting will begin at 10:30. Cost is $20. The luncheon is served at noon, followed by the speaker. Due to space limitations, reservations are required. To join us, RSVP to Marjie at or call her at 619-990-2791.

NCRWF had an incredibly fulfilling year in 2015, with so many new members joining us that we are now the largest club in San Diego County. We like to think it’s because we are friendly, active and get things done. Our activities are fun but also purposeful, such as getting together to decorate hundreds of Valentine’s Day and Veteran’s Day cards for our wounded military.

For the sixth time in a row, the club has received the highly coveted Diamond Award in recognition of our accomplishments in 2014-15. We are proud of our two membership awards and especially of our first place awards in both community volunteer hours and political hours, with our members individually contributing more than 10,000 hours to each. The total number of hours devoted to the community by our members countywide is more than 147,000! We believe in doing our part in caring for America and Americans. Our membership drive for the new year is just beginning; we’d love to have you join us! (Cost is $30.)
