A hearty potluck, stacks of gifts for military children and Christmas joy rang through the home of Navajo Canyon Republican Women, Federated member Ginny Wisely as we gathered together for our annual holiday celebration and election of officers for the new year. Although not all of our candidates won and too many tax increases were passed, it was a good election for Republicans across the country and, after so many disappointing years in the past, it felt good to rejoice among friends.
After a very busy 2016, Sally Steele was installed for her second year as president. We’ll have names and pictures of the full slate in the next issues of the Mission Times Courier and La Mesa Courier. Waskah Whelan was once again lauded for her extreme leadership as precinct and campaign chairman for the San Diego County Federated Women. Those who contributed so much of their time were also thanked.
The new year begins Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, at La Mesa’s Brigantine Restaurant. Although the speaker had not been finalized by our publication date, we can count on the first meeting after the election to be exuberant!
Check-in time for the 11 a.m. luncheon meeting is 10:30 a.m. A full-course luncheon will be served at noon with the speaker following at 12:30 p.m. To join us, RSVP to NCRWF99@gmail.com or call Marjie at 619-990-2791. Cost is $20 and reservations are required. Please join us!
