A message from Jean Turner
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
A HAPPY NEW YEAR
the events of Ohio Federation of
Republican Women and National Federation of Republican Women, all the
clubs throughout Ohio,, like biennials, banquets, board meetings,
fairs, speakers, and all the hard work for the year of 2013 has come to
a close. As with all good things, some things come to an end and that
is how I feel as my last month as President of the OFRW comes to an end
“It has been the greatest time of my life, working and
meeting with such remarkable, wonderful ladies. As I am writing this
letter, tomorrow is ‘Thanksgiving’, and we have so very much to be
thankful for. So many things in this past year have not been the way
true Republicans want it to be, but with 2014 right around the corner
let us all work together because this is the year to put Republicans in
the House and Senate. There are many important races but these two are
especially important at this time in our history.
There are many new clubs with new officers as well as the OFRW
with new officers. Please ladies, if you are a past president or past
treasurer remember to mentor and give your new officers some help. I
also have a reminder to the new officers, do not be afraid to ask for
advise, we just cannot know everything going into a new office.
is a reminder for everyone, “PLEASE SEND DUES IN EARLY”, in fact as
early in the year as possible. Treasurers, or membership chairs, if you
have not sent out your 2014 dues requests yet, that should be a
priority to work on immediately.
As I sign off as President
for the last four years... Here comes President Lyn Bliss with much
enthusiasm, knowledge, and a real true Republican. Good Luck Lyn, and
Good Luck to all the new OFRW officers for 2014-2015.
This time I am signing off with a hug to everyone, I will miss all my
Bless you and God Bless America!
