NOTICE TO CLUB TREASURERS 
The OFRW has prepared a form that can be used to present the monthly treasurer's report. A report should be prepared and given at each club meeting. These reports  are never approved at a meeting, as club members do not have access to receipts and statements covered in the report. The monthly treasurer's reports are simply accepted by the President and the statement made that the  report will be filed for review. A copy is then included with the minutes for that meeting. At the end of the membership year, all reports for the year should be submitted to a review committee - along with all of the supporting documentation (deposit receipts, statements, bills, monthly bank statements, etc.). The review committee should present its report covering the previous year's financila activities of the club at the first meeting of each membership year -- and this is what is given approval/acceptance (or not) by the membership. This report is also filed with the minutes of the club.

NFRW's
Pathfinder Scholarship
Columbus, Ohio – Ohio Federation of Republican Women (OFRW) received notification from the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) that its candidate, Jessica Johnson, was named as recipient of the NFRW's National Pathfinder Scholarship.

The National Pathfinder Scholarship Fund was established in 1985 in honor of First Lady Nancy Reagan.

"Jessica has an outstanding educational and extra-curricular background with many achievements," said OFRW President Lyn Bliss. "Her goals in Public Administration, through the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, is to be admired. I'm confident Nancy Reagan would be pleased with the selection of Jessica Johnson as this year's recipient."

Each state Federation is allowed to submit one applicant to the NFRW.  From numerous applications, Johnson's was picked by the OFRW's Applicant Evaluation Committee as the one to be submitted to the NFRW.

The three annual scholarships of $2,500 provide financial assistance and support to women seeking undergraduate or graduate degrees. Undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as students enrolled in a master's degree program, are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
