Congratulations Cy-Fair Republican Women! You continue to be an award winning club! Again, you earned the National Federation of Republican Women’s Diamond Achievement Award and also received the Texas Federation of Republican Women’s John Goodwin Tower Award of Excellence at the 2017 TFRW Convention. These organizations establish criteria that must be accomplished by a member club to qualify; and CFRW consistently meets their standards. Thank you, Joy Gregory, CFRW Awards Chair, for managing this effort so well.
CFRW had eight member delegates attend the TFRW Convention in Dallas October 19-21. Each day was full of activities, meetings, great speakers and enjoying fellowship with fabulous Texas Women! The speakers included Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, Governor Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick to name just a few. Workshops offered a variety of subjects from which to choose and our delegation would like to share some of this information with you at an AFTER HOURS CHAT early next year. Jan Ott, CFRW 1st VP and Program Chair, was very busy scouting possible speakers for our meetings so we will look forward to hearing what she has planned.
At the Senate District 7 Caucus to elect a District Director, I was re-elected to that position and will continue to be available to assist CFRW as well as the other five SD 7 clubs.
We would like to express our gratitude to Texas State Representatives Dr. Tom Oliverson, Kevin Roberts and Mike Schofield for their informative panel discussion at the October General Meeting.
November 3 is the High Heels and High Tea Luncheon and Fashion Show – our biennial fundraiser that allows us to support Republican candidates, candidate forums and to offer educational scholarships to students in our community. You can find details on our website: www.cfrw.net .
Finally, thank you so very much CFRW for nominating me for the 2017 TFRW Ten Outstanding Women Award! The night was amazing – sitting at the table with our Delegation, having Jan Ott, mentor and friend, keeping me balanced as we waited to hear the Honorees announced and then being on stage as an Honoree with four women that have been so instrumental in my growth in this area of my life; Toni Anne Dashiell, Carolyn Hodges, Jody Rushton and Patricia Harless – my emotions overflowed. Being selected to the TFRW Ten Outstanding Class of 2017 is a extraordinary honor and CFRW’s confidence in me an inspiration.
All Republican candidates are invited to provide information about upcoming campaign activities and events and we will be happy to publish details. This is not a club endorsement, club president endorsement or campaign chair endorsement, only candidate information to help you make an informed decision and get involved with the candidate of your choice.
