39th NFRW Biennial Convention

This fall, the National Federation of Republican Women will return to where it all began; the birthplace of American Democracy – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!! Right here in our own Commonwealth!! Make sure you’ve cleared your schedule so you can be at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott Sept. 14-17 for three days of planning, education and networking.

As the host federation, PFRW is very much involved in making sure the NFRW Biennial Convention is a huge success. That means every PFRW member is needed to help the entire event go smoothly.

Are you interested in being a convention sponsor? Or, perhaps you or someone you know would like to be a vendor. Complete information on these two opportunities can be found on the NFRW web site at http://www.nfrw.org/convention-philadelphia.

Details on hotel reservations and convention registration should be available shortly.

March is Reading Awareness Month

Did you know that Republican Women all across the country encourage the development of reading skills as the precursor to children securing good educations and chasing big dreams?

Motivated by the literacy programs of NFRW, each year our council reaches out within the SUN area to provide books to at-risk children.  Some of our recent projects include providing for a reading nook in a community non-profit agency, donating books to a Title I elementary school, and donating books to the public libraries in all three of our counties.

SUNACRW  believes reading and writing is fundamental to success.
