Congratulations to the Essay Winners

The winners of the 2017 Loretta M. Sprenkle Memorial Essay Contest, their families and friends were guests of SUN Area Council of Republican Women on May 4, 2017. Winners read their essay, received their cash awards and certificates before enjoying a social time.

Regional students submitted essays on the 2017 topic, “What was the most important event in United States history and why?”

Sr. High winners were Noah Stamm, who wrote about the Importance of the Industrial Revolution and Erin King, whose focus was the American Revolution. Both are home educated students from New Columbia.

Ralph Baker of Riverside, a Jr. High student at St. Joseph’s School, Danville, wrote about The Civil War.

SUN Area Council of Republican Women sponsors the annual essay contest each spring in memory of founding member Loretta Sprenkle who was committed to educating youth on the importance of Americanism. It is open to all students living in Snyder, Union or Northumberland counties.  The essay topic is announced each January.

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.

Coupons for Overseas Military

SUNACRW continues to support military family stationed abroad by helping them stretch their buying power by providing coupons to be used in on-base stores.   PXs accept current and expired coupons allowing us to send a wide variety of coupons.

SUNACRW has been participating in Coupons for Military for several years.  However, please note that we are changing distribution programs since our previous contact is no longer stationed in South Korea.

The new program has different rules.  Only food, baby, basic household and toiletries coupons are accepted.  No makeup or hair products.  The types of coupons do not need to be sorted, but ones with current dates need to be sorted from those which have expired up to 3 months ago.  Bring your unused coupons to our meetings or contact for arrangements to donate your clippings.
