Club Hosts Standing Room Only Crowd at March Meeting

Our March meeting drew a crowd of over 120 people. We also added 26 new memberships and renewals to the roles.

Speakers included 2014 club scholarship recipient and practicing attorney Hilary Solet Thompson. Hilary spoke of how the support of Republican women helped shape her success. She continues to be a conservative voice and leader in New Orleans. Our club is very proud of Hilary and her success. 

Also speaking was 5th Congressional District candidate Julia Letlow, PhD. Julia is running for the seat left vacant by her late husband, Congressman-Elect Luke Letlow. Julia talked about her goal of carrying on the legacy of service in the 5th District. Julia is Pro-Life, Pro-2nd Amendment, and pro jobs. Farmers, loggers, and ranchers are scattered all along the 5th. Keeping these small businesses growing will be a priority. Julia has served as the Director of Communications and Business Development at the University of Louisiana at Monroe and sees the importance of education at all levels. She also spoke of her support of trade schools.   

Our meeting also honored our members and associates who have passed away since 2019. An arrangement of yellow roses flanked the podium and a candle was lit in honor of each of the 19 souls who are no longer with us.

Our March meeting was a tribute to the values of reflection, respect, and commitment to growth and moving forward.
