MONTGOMERY COUNTY REPUBLICAN WOMEN'S CLUB
Montgomery County Republican Women is one of the largest clubs in Tennessee, with 102 members and 20 associate members.
Starting the year with a new Executive Committee, we have worked toward informing our members about candidates and issues and toward achieving the NFRW Diamond Award through our speakers, forums and donations.
With Tennessee's GOP goal of "Red to the Roots," we have hosted speakers for clerk, trustee, county and city mayor, council representatives, circuit court judges, and state and federal representatives. At the end of 2013, our club published the Montgomery County Republican Women Cookbook.
We have donated $1,000 to Fisher House and $1,010 to the Wounded Warrior program, donated to candidates, contributed to the funds for the opening of the county GOP headquarters, and given to the NFRW scholarship, endowment and internship funds. We have also made a scholarship donation to Austin Peay State University and contributed a MELP book to the public library.
Club activities include attendance at Ladies' Day on the Hill, a "membership klatsch," and a future registration drive. We have added a website and a Facebook page to our media outreach and hope to reach other members through a quarterly night meeting.
Above, club members are pictured, prior to the primary elections, with a sign that reads: "I'm registered to vote, are you?" The photo was published on Facebook and posted on our website as the precursor to our voter registration drive.
