Although Navajo Canyon Republican Women Federated (NCRWF) has no official luncheon meetings in July and August, there’s still time for Republican fun! So, we will be hosting “Navajo Nights” during the summer months.
This social, informal event is for any Republican woman who wants to spend an evening with other like-minded conservative women, meet new friends and partake in lively discussions.
“Navajo Nights” will be held once in July and again in August at Black Angus Restaurant in El Cajon. We’ll have hors d’oeuvres and beverages, and comments from a guest speaker.
As plans develop, details regarding day, times and speaker will be posted on the front page of our website, navajocanyonrwf.org. These get-togethers will also be a great opportunity to join in the conversation for those who can’t make our daytime luncheon meetings.
Since we all agree there is plenty to talk about regarding national, state and local politics (and we all have opinions), this evening should be exhilarating.
Based on members’ research and votes, NCRWF has chosen its charities for the next year.
We’ll be raising funds for the East County Transitional Living Center, which changes lives through proven programs that guide homeless and distraught individuals and families into becoming self-sustaining, independent, productive members of society.
We will also be helping out the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, an organization that aspires to be the leading force in assisting, honoring and supporting the military men and women who have bravely served our country.
Finally, we will be providing money towards Final Hour, to provide a complimentary horse-drawn funeral carriage at Miramar National Cemetery.
This past May we contributed funds for Veterans of North County. We know that “freedom isn’t free” and we are happy to express our gratitude.
Registering voters is keeping NCRWF club members busy at the San Diego County Fair, the Santee Street Fair and new citizen ceremonies.
We’re finding that visitors to our booth are eager to sign up against the new GasTax/CarTax and the single-payer health care system winding its way through the state Legislature.
Our regular luncheon meetings will start back up Sept. 13 at The Brigantine with Brett Winterble, KFMB 760 radio personality.
