It’s been quite a year since winning the 2016 presidential election. Much of the opposition has been loud and vocal, but we continue to focus on traditional Republican values and principles of opportunity and responsibility that makes America so great.
Now it’s time to celebrate the holidays again with a Christmas party at the home of Navajo Canyon Republican Women, Federated (NCRWF) member Ginny Wisley at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12. We’ll bring presents for the children of our military men and women who are serving our country in dangerous ways. Military Outreach Ministries, who serve young military parents and families stretching their family budgets, will distribute them for us.
We’ll celebrate our new members and the camaraderie we all enjoy. We’ll celebrate our out-going president, Sally Steele — our super energetic and creative president — who will remain involved on the new board.
We’ll also celebrate the installation of our new board for 2018: president Kat Culkin of Del Cerro; vice president of programs Nancy Murnahan of La Mesa; vice president of membership Terry Casey of El Cajon; vice president of ways and means Carleen Grantham of San Carlos; vice president of campaigns and precincts Waskah Whelan of Pt. Loma; recording secretary Chris Herzog of Lakeside; treasurer Nancy Norton of El Cajon; corresponding secretary Ginny Wisley of Fletcher Hills; and parliamentarian Gloria Harpenau of Crest.
We’ll be celebrating our very successful Fashion Show and fundraiser that enables us to donate $2,000 to Warrior Foundation Freedom Station which assists, honors and supports our military men and women.
Our membership drive for 2018 begins at the meeting. Dues are $35. NCRWF provides an opportunity for local Republican women to inform themselves on current issues, to support Republican principles and candidates and to strengthen local charitable organizations through volunteer activities and contributions. We are a club without boundaries, are open to all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. We are the grass roots of the Republican Party, and welcome new members. If you’re interested, come to the party and meet us!
Our regular luncheon meetings at The Brigantine in La Mesa will resume Tuesday, Jan. 9, with Tony Krvaric, chairman of the San Diego County Republican Party, as our speaker. You can count on a full year of interesting speakers and lots of activities.
