December’s general meeting will come in the form of our holiday Christmas party at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 9, in the home of member Ginny Wisley. There will be a short installation of officers and a lot of mingling and meeting other Navajo Canyon Republican Women, including the 25 new members who joined this year. The party is a fantastic way to get to know each other and talk about the election results. We will also be collecting gifts for San Diego MOM (Military Outreach Ministries). This charity takes care of all junior enlisted families in gratitude for their service. Please RSVP to NCRWF99@gmail.com or call Glenda at 619-284-9958. Please bring a dish to share, as well as a gift for the military children.
Marjie Siekerka will return as president for the new year. Others elected to serve during 2015 are Cathie Johns as first vice president of programs; Gloria Harpenau, second vice president of membership; Sally Steele, third vice president of ways and means; Glenda Boerner, recording secretary; Kathy Riesgo, treasurer; Pat Boerner, corresponding secretary; Nancy Amador, parliamentarian; and Waskah Whelan, past president (and current president of San Diego County RWF).
We’ll be back at La Mesa’s Brigantine restaurant on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, with guest speaker John Coleman, meteorologist and co-founder of the Weather Channel. He’s familiar to San Diegans as the former weather forecaster for KUSI-TV. We are looking forward to another year of intriguing and informative speakers.
Downtown Republican Women, our satellite club, will celebrate the holidays with a party at Diane Randolph’s condo Downtown, and will begin the new year with San Diego Councilmembers Scott Sherman and Chris Cate — who are planning to join us Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. at The Athens Market, located on the corner of First and F streets Downtown. Cost is $15 for the amazing hors d’oeuvres buffet and no-host bar.
Downtown Republican Women meet every third Thursday of the month in an after-work setting, and all Republicans are welcome to come and join in discussions with the guests of honor. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
