Tip of the Month for Club Presidents

Charting a course for 2017

Presidents, 2017 is upon us – you need to get a head start on the year. Please concentrate on naming committee chairs as soon as possible. Once that is done, sit down with each and talk about their job and what they have in mind for the upcoming year. Ask them to provide at least one goal for their committee to achieve during the upcoming year. This is not your goal, it is the committee’s goal – if it makes sense and will further the goals of the club, be encouraging……you can claim equal credit because it happened while you were presiding.

Hello Ladies!

Can you believe that 2017 is just around the corner? What a full year this has been! I've heard from several clubs that they are continuing to work on their support for this year's Caring For American Project Recipient - Operation Buckeye. Thank you all for your continued efforts. I know how much it means to our deployed troops when they receive packages from home; and what an honor it is for us to participate in this outreach opportunity.
Speaking of outreach opportunities... We'd like to take this next week to hear from each of our OFRW clubs to learn what other ways your club is Caring For America - by caring for folks within your community. For example - are your members involved in projects for the homeless; how about collecting toys for kids at Christmas? In Richland County, the ladies help the local Guard Base with their annual Christmas Party. For years they have enjoyed making Christmas crafts with the children of the 179th AirLift Wing.

What about you? Please email me, sometime this week, examples of how you are making a difference within your community - how are you Caring For America at the local level? Your examples will be shared with the NFRW, so they can in turn, share with other states. Its a great way to encourage ladies all over the country!  Let's show them what a wonderful job Ohio is doing!

Please email me by clicking HERE.

Thank you in advance and have a very Merry Christmas!

Warren Republican Women
Thank their Community with a "Flash Mob"

Warren Republican Women's Club (Trumbull County) held repeated Flash Mob events in support of Trump prior to the election. After the election, they held a "thank you" flash mob and party.

"Having our last victory party at Top-notch Diner in Cortland this morning. It is bittersweet. All the TV interviews, videos, campaigns, rallys, RNC convention, countless hours of volunteering and elections -- it is now all over. But it was a sweet ride AND WE WON!" said Judie Shortreed in a  Facebook Post. Click

I am.

By Cassie Hewlett

I am not racist. I am not homophobic. I am not sexist. I am not a misogynist. I am for free market. I am for stronger foreign policy. I am for small business. I am for my family. I am Republican.

With the results of the presidential election stirring up a vast amount of emotions, I think it is important to clarify something: just because I am Republican does not mean I am heartless. The point of this is not to debate political policies. It is to highlight what it felt like to be a Republican college student the day after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.

On November 9th, I went to class and in every single one there was a somber attitude. Pre-lecture discussions were filled with phrases like “I am scared for our future”, “I am scared to be gay”, “How did this happen?”, and, by far the most bothersome, “People that voted for Trump are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic selfish red necks”. Even my professors opened class with the assumption that everyone was sad about the result of the election by saying things like, “let’s not talk about last night. Ever.” or “No class on Friday. I’m house hunting in Canada.”

To Hold Two Events in December

The OCRW Christmas Party will be on Thursday, December 8th at 7:00 PM at the home of Diane and Dave Belden,  2761 North Bluff Ridge Drive, Port Clinton, OH 43452. Bring an appetizer to share and the beverage of your choice. We are again supporting the Salvation Angel Tree program. If you have an Angel Tree slip, please bring the toy or requested item that evening. You can also bring a $25 gift card from Wal-Mart (or a similar store), as those have been requested also. The Salvation Army also needs hats, mittens and coats. If you would like to donate any of those items, please bring them along the evening of the Christmas Party.
There is also an opportunity to help with the Salvation Red Kettle Drive on Monday 12/12/16. The OCRW will be ringing the bell at Wal-Mart that day and we need bell ringers from 12 noon on, for 2 hour shifts.
Call Diane Belden (419-967-0650) for questions about the Christmas Party and to volunteer for bell-ringing. And please remember that men are welcome at all our events!!
Have a blessed weekend!
Jill Stinebaugh
President, OCRW
