The Canfield Republican Women's Club was founded in the early 1960s.

The mission of the CRWC is to provide a local center for obtaining political and legislative information, to increase the number of women registered in the Republican Party, and to unite their efforts along party lines.

The club also participates in "Caring for America," nonpartisan projects as well as literacy programs. Locally, we support various community endeavors and provide grassroots assistance to qualified Republican political candidates.

Members include women throughout Mahoning County and is not restricted to only Canfield residents.

What We've Done
Canfield Republican Women
Hold Fundraiser

   

 
The Canfield Republican Women’s Club held their annual Fundraiser on June.  This year the ladies tried a new event and it was a huge success - a great time was had by all.  The Fundraiser was a Quarter Auction.  We had approximately 120 people in attendance.
 
The ladies of the Club donated 105 items to be auctioned off.  All of the items were collected and numbered by our Chairwoman, Pat Woomer.  The first 6 Items were sold by George Roman, one of our local auctioneers, by way of the normal Live Auction.  Following that, the remaining 98 items were placed in the Quarter Auction.
 

 
Tickets were sold in advance for the Quarter Auction and the price of the ticket included a numbered Bidding Paddle, Ping Pong Ball with corresponding number and Hors d’ oeuvres.  As guests arrived, they received their Bidding Paddle and Ping Pong Ball.  The numbered Ping Pong Ball was placed in a “Squirrel Cage”.  Each table, with guests of 8 - 10 people, had a metal bucket in the center of the table.  Each guest also received a catalog itemizing the prizes to be auctioned along with the donor of the item and the value of the item/prize.   All guests were asked to bring a lot of quarters with them or they could purchase quarters from our Club Treasurer, Katherine Wolfe (she was buried in quarters by the end of the evening). 
 
This is how the Quarter Auction works.  As an item/prize comes up, the value of the item is noted and anyone wishing to raise their bidding paddle, to take a chance on winning the item, is required to place a quarter or quarters in the bucket in the center of the table.  For example, a $15.00 Gift Certificate for Dunkin Donuts would require a bidder to place One Quarter in the Bucket in the center of their table.  All guests who had placed a quarter in their bucket would then raise their Bidding Paddle.  When all Paddles (only those paddles where the guest had paid the quarter) were raised in the air, a Ping Pall Ball was drawn from the Squirrel Cage.  The person with the Bidder Paddle that corresponded to the number on the Ping Pong Ball won the Dunkin Donuts gift certificate.  If a number was called and the owner of that Bidder Paddle had not paid a quarter for the right to participate in the chance on the gift certificate, another number would be drawn.
 
The number of quarters required went up incrementally with the value of the item being auctioned.  For example an item valued at $20.00 - $40.00 would require 2 quarters be thrown into the bucket, etc.  The most expensive items/prizes required 4 quarters to be placed in the buckets.

 2011
Canfield Republican Women's Club has been gathering items for the USO Care Packages as their Caring for America project. They have a "boat load" already!!!

Spouse and Community Night

    There was a great evening meeting on April 7th. Spouses and community were invited. Featured speaker was Jeff Sanders ─ a member of The Public Square radio broadcast team, produced by the American Policy Roundtable. Jeff has pastored churches in Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio. He is currently pastoring the Grace Family Fellowship in Canton, Ohio.
    Jeff is passionate about America's history. This comes naturally since he was raised on the stories of his ancestors who have been in America since the days of the War for Independence. His great grandfather (times four) was the original Clerk of the United States House of Representatives.
    In his spare time Jeff is a Civil War re-enactor and teaches about the average life of a Civil War soldier ─ to schools, churches, and civic organizations .
    The event was held at Blue Wolf Banquet and Catering, 7095 Lockwood Boulevard, in Canfield.
