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.

Strike Force Georgia

Remember Rosie?  Rosie traversed the country in 2016 to help Republicans win the Presidency.  Now Rosie is back on the road headed to Georgia for the June 20 special election to fill the congressional seat previously held by Rep. Tom Price, who is President Trump’s choice to head Health and Human Services.
 GOTV is vital to the effort to elect Georgia’s first Republican woman to Congress.  Karen Handle is a fiscally conservative committed to election integrity with photo ID.  She needs your help in the runoff election.  Grassroots work is what Republican Women do best!
NFRW Strike Force Weekend is June 9-11.  If you can travel to Georgia, please contact Political@NFRW.org.
Can’t travel?  No problem!  You can help from home.  Sign up at karenhandle.com to make phone calls or donate.

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.
