A message from
Linda Burke
First Vice-president

Happy Spring!!!  Were you beginning to wonder if we would ever see the flowers bloom?

If you were not able to attend the Spring Conference you missed a very special day.  We had very informative speakers and workshops.

Thank you to all that attended and to the informative and inspirational speakers. 

Thank you to Auditor Dave Yost and his beautiful wife Darlene for spending time with all of us!  Thank you to Kim Chambers and Raya Mafazy for presenting very informative workshops.  Thank you to the Program and Fundraising Committees for a wonderful day! 

Please be sure to mark your calendars for the Fall Conference, September 12-13 at the Moundbuilders Country Club in Newark.  I promise you it will be a great conference!  More information will be forthcoming.

May 1 is the National Day of Prayer and whether you are attending a service or praying on your own, our country is in deep need of restoration.  Our Founding Fathers knew how important it was to have God in the public square.  It is clear our nation has strayed far from those founding principles. Let us renew our commitment to restore our nation to the founding principles: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 

The primary season is upon us!   We are setting the stage for 2016 and taking back our country!  The grassroots is the most important aspect of any election.  Make sure you vote on May 6!  We need you to help reelect our Republican statewide team.  Let us keep our state to it's very roots!!!!  After the primary the real work begins, make sure you are a part of this very important election.  Every Republican Candidate will need our help!  Please get involved!

Don't forget Club Presidents it is time for dues to be submitted!  Check for forms at and send to Mary Beth Kemmer.  All information is on the website.

Have a very happy Spring!  Hope to see all of you soon! God bless you and God bless America!

Linda Burke,
OFRW 1st Vice President and Program Chair
