Ohio's NFRW Intern
just three short weeks I have already had the best summer of my
life. As an intern with the National Federation of Republican
Women, I have been to several events in Washington D.C., visited
Georgia’s sixth district twice while campaigning for Karen Handel, and
attended a summit in Dallas. Karen, who has been a member of
for many years just became the first GOP Congresswoman from
Georgia. Being a part of such an iconic and highly contested
campaign has certainly been a highlight of my time spent
as well as many NFRW members from across the country, joined together
and spent countless hours door knocking, making phone calls, rallying,
and sign waving. In fact, NFRW President Carrie Almond and myself spent
two hours sign waving on election day in the pouring rain. It was quite
an experience to have people honking at you to show their support while
you are sopping wet! (but obviously still smiling and having
While on the road to victory,

aboard our lovely RV Rosie and pulled up in style to support Karen
Handel at events and rallies. Helping people of all ages to sign the
bus was a heartwarming experience for me. I had one young girl, who was
no more than ten, excitedly tell me she was supporting Karen Handel and
hoped she could sign her name to the NFRW bus. It is so
refreshing to be around women who have the same values as I do and to
be able to display those fully. After helping with Karen Handel’s
campaign, we were lucky enough to be invited to her election night
gathering and watch the results come in live. Jenna (the second intern)
and I were downstairs when we saw the newest update- 79% reporting with
Karen up by 5 points. Jenna and I proceed to run up two flights of
stairs in high heels to the main room where every single person was
cheering, crying, high fiving, and hugging because they had just called
the election. Never in my life have I been more excited. After putting
so much effort into the campaign, to not only see the candidate win,
but to be present with her and hundreds of others when the room erupted
with victory screams was a dream. It was truly a night to
Besides visiting Georgia, I also
attended the Young
Women’s Leadership Summit in Dallas, Texas. While there, I met and
listened to many conservative speakers with ideas that were directed at
young women. Carly Fiorina spoke of her path to success and
bumps and even mountains she overcame along the way. John
spoke about how each conservative lady is a freedom fighter. Ben
Shapiro told each of us that there is not a glass ceiling, there is
only sky above us and Susan LaPierre gave helpful pointers on how to be
a successful leader in the conservative movement. Each of the speakers
spoke specifically to women and how, as Republicans, we can make a
Although we have spent a large
amount of time on
the road, I have still had the incredible opportunity to attend several
events back in Washington D.C. The annual congressional women’s
softball game was an opportunity to see many congresswomen as well as
the amazing capital police officer Crystal Griner, who threw the first
pitch. While at that game, I was able to meet Kellyanne Conway (who is
every conservative woman’s idol) and have a complete “fangirl” moment
while I thanked her for everything she has done this past year and a
The days I have not been
traveling have been spent in the
NFRW headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia where I help to do important
work daily. This has included calling each state president and
organizing all the national scholarship applications, as well as
helping to organize the upcoming convention in Philadelphia.
only three weeks, this internship has been more than I ever thought it
possibly could be. When I am not working, you can typically find me
running along the reflecting pool or visiting various museums. To sum
things up I would like to borrow a Nancy Reagan quote, “You learn
something out of everything, and you come to realize more than ever
that we’re all here for a certain space of time, and, then it’s going
to be over, and you better make this count.” Three weeks have already
flown by and I am here to learn everything I can from these incredible
women. I will make every second of it count and furthermore I
would simply like to say thank you to everyone who allowed me to have
this once in a lifetime opportunity.

TO CLUB TREASURERS
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.
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

Thoughts on Life
The following is one of the more profound exchanges seen on
Facebook. It is well worth sharing!
Cynthea Sabolich: Years ago I asked God what he wanted of me, a chubby
woman, wife, grandmother, in Ohio. I asked that he tell me His plan for
me. While I waited for His answer, I took to the streets to protest the
debt, met some like minded people, helped with a TEA party, joined the
inner circle of the Republican Party, and just kept busy on facebook
posting my silly thoughts about why we needed Trump. Still waiting to
hear from Him on high. Hope He's not disappointed with me. ....
Ken George responded: A frail and pale, sickly old man lived alone in a
cabin in the woods. One day, totally depressed and sad, raised up his
hands and cried out...."God, please take me...I can't go on" Just then
he heard a voice. "In front of your cabin is a large boulder. Push it
toward the river and never give up" The man cried and wondered how he
could possibly do it, but being a faithful man, did as commanded.
Everyday, for 10 hours, he pushed the rock as hard as he could......it
just wouldn't move. But he pushed and pushed, each day, for years.
Finally after three years, without moving the rock an inch, he sat in
his chair and said what's the use, I'll never be able to do it. Just
then he heard the voice again. "So....you are giving up? You did as I
asked, and had great success." The man inquired....God...how did I have
success.....I haven't moved the rock. The voice answered..."Look at
your body....your arms and legs have grown strong and muscular, your
skin is tanned and smooth, and your health has returned. Never give up,
I'll move the rock, you just have to do as I ask."
Cynthea, my dear friend....you are doing what he asked......saving
America from the evil that is at the door step. Keep doing what you are
doing and everything will work out the way it should. All of us in the
"movement" know we are on the right side of this. The side of good,
equality, fairness, opportunity....all the things that are good and
honorable.....but we are not finished yet. Each of us doing what we do
will win the day.
