The Importance of Our Scrapbooks

PFRW Councils use scrapbooking as a  method to document their activities each year.  Over time the photos and mementos give a clear picture of a council’s commitment to good government, community and republican values.

PFRW sponsors a scrapbook contest at its bi-annual conference which will be held in Pittsburg in two weeks, but more importantly browsing the scrapbooks gives us an opportunity to share our year with other councils and get new ideas from them.

Last evening SUNACRW finished documenting our year.  Now we have a renewed excitement of the plans and purposes for the upcoming months and years.  Won’t you join us as a new member?  We’d love to have you!

UN CRPD

The US Senate Foreign Relations committee has scheduled a hearing on the U.N. Convention on the rights of Persons with Disabilities for Tuesday July 22 at 10 am.  We have discussed how CRPD, while touting benefits, actually hands control of parenting to the federal government and the United Nations stripping parents of their God given rights to make the best decisions for their children.

Please contact Senators Toomey and Casey today and ask them to oppose this treaty.

America: Imagine the World Without Her

Go see Dinesh D’Souza’s latest film while it is still playing in the Valley.  It is a powerful experience that open eyes and hearts to the realities of current attempt to tear down and rewrite the history that made our country the greatest on earth.  It exposes the way transformation of thought has been systematically implemented at many levels.  You will be enlightened and empowered to embrace core American ideals.

“America is great because she is good; if she ever ceases to be good she will cease to be great.”

America is playing today at the Susquehanna Mall and Lycoming Mall.

Schuylkill County Clerk Seeks Standing for Marriage Appeal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Schuylkill County Clerk Files Motion to Intervene in Marriage Lawsuit

This afternoon, Jim Smith and David Crossett, attorneys with the Smith Law Group, LLC, located in Fleetwood, Berks County, Pennsylvania, and Jeff Conrad, attorney with Clymer, Musser & Conrad, P.C., located in Lancaster County, on behalf of Theresa Santai Gaffney, Clerk of the Orphan’s Court of Schuylkill County, filed a Motion to Intervene in Whitewood v. Wolf, the case in which a single federal District Judge declared unconstitutional for all Pennsylvanians, the Commonwealth’s longstanding definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. Theresa Santai Gaffney, Clerk of the Orphan’s Court, is seeking intervention in the case so that the ruling can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Governor Corbett, who had been defending the law, declined to appeal the ruling. “An appeal is necessary so that the judicial process is not abandoned,” stated Ms. Gaffney. “The people of Pennsylvania deserve to hear from the Court of Appeals on this important issue because a single judge should not be able to nullify the will of the majority without an appeal.”

Marriage between one man and one woman has always been the law in Pennsylvania. “I respect the law of our Commonwealth and the will of the people reflected in the law,” said Ms. Gaffney. “I believe that the voice of those who think that our law is constitutional and best serves all citizens of the Commonwealth should be heard.”

“Due to the uncertainty of the state of the law, I will continue issuing marriage licenses to all couples,” said Ms. Gaffney.

One of the reasons that she is seeking to intervene in this case is to obtain clarity about her official duties.

The Motion to Intervene asks the Court for the ability to join the lawsuit for purposes of appeal.
