OFRW members at the Debate
(If you have photos of club members at the debate, please submit them)
Many of our OFRW members were volunteers the night of the Cleveland Debate - Joan Grube (Licking County RWC) sent this photo with her husband in their volunteer shirts.

OFRW Women in Business Chairlady Sue Smail (R) and I were individually and privately part of the host Committee for the Debate and reception - we had a wonderful time that evening (and, on into the next morning....)

There will be ten or eleven more debates between now and next March - wouldn't it be fun to be able to be at all of them? You may find a list of the individuals who have declared themselves to be hopefuls to win the GOP nod as its Presidential Candidate in the 2016 election by clicking HERE, where you will also find links to the websites, etc. for each of these hopefuls.

Please click HERE for information on attending the Cleveland Convention and also how to volunteer to help at the Convention.

Membership Idea
County Fairs are well under way - if your party has a tent/booth/building please see if your club can have a display and sign-up sheet for interested ladies to leave their name and contact information. Another idea is to have a gift certificate - or other prize - offered as a drawing. At the end of the fair, sort out those that appear to be women and contact them to see if they would be interested in coming to a club meeting. If they are, have a member volunteer to pick them up and bring them or meet them personally at the door prior to the meeting.

If you have not been to the NFRW website, you might be interested in knowing that the Young Republican Women of Cincinnati is featured on the Membership Page. Congratulations, ladies!

Please enjoy the coming Fall weather and if you see a service member or veteran, please thank them for their service.

Lyn Bliss, President
