To our Cy-Fair Republican Women Members and Friends:
Can you believe next Saturday is May 1st? May will hopefully bring us some SE Texas temperatures. I moved to here to be warm. So far this year we have had the ‘Polar Vortex’, a fairly cool spring and last Saturday at my granddaughter’s soccer game in Missouri City I had on jeans, long sleeve shirt, jacket and a blanket wrapped around me. Brrr….bring on the heat!!
May is going to be a fun and educational month for Cy-Fair Republican Women. First, the educational part. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Mark Henry, Superintendent of Cy-Fair ISD. His talk will be “COVID 19 Perspective -Pandemic lessons”. This is one you will not want to miss. Make your reservations early at www.cfrw.net.
The fun part of May is going to be our M & M’s promotion. M & M’s (Mothers and Members). Trish Powell, Hospitality Chair, and I have come up with a little fun to honor Mothers and increase our membership. The more members we have the more delegates and alternates we are allotted to the TFRW Convention; better opportunity for awards; more volunteers we will have for elections and the more we will be able to spread the word and get Republicans elected as we work to turn Harris County red. See the attached flyer for details.
Lastly for May, we are asking for donations of used or new books for the residents of Camp Hope. Camp Hope is our Caring for America project. If you are doing some spring cleaning on books at your house, please consider bringing them to the May meeting to donate to our veterans. Ages range of veteran residents at Camp Hope is from early 20’s to 70’s.
Thank you to all who turned in your campaign hours for first quarter. Awards are given at the TFRW and the NFRW Convention for those with the highest campaign hours. Did you know that traveling to and from a CFRW meeting counts as campaign hours?
Gail Schubot, Micheline Hutson, Renee Baker, Nancy Roberts, Pat and Ron Baughman, Jaymie Archer, Jan Ott, Susan Draughon, Teresa Thomas, Tom Nobis, my husband Bill and me, who are Members and Associate Members of CFRW attended the Harris County Republican Party Lincoln/Reagan Dinner in early April. There were 1200 Republicans in attendance. We were treated to great speeches, words of advice/wisdom (and a few laughs) from Trey Gowdy, Governor Abbott, Governor Kristi Noem and a closing and ‘rah rah’ speech by our own Senator Ted Cruz. It was a grand evening.
