Club 'Gets Things Done' Serving County

Putnam County Republican Women of West Virginia continues to make monumental efforts working throughout the county.

Our members and associates have been very busy throughout our County.  

Trying to keep up with some events and community service recently, here are just a few more to add to our list.

Just about every month, we make our regular visit to the Putnam County Animal Relief Center to donate food, kitty liter, newspaper, and sponsor pets.  

The hearts these ladies and men have is such a blessing to our club.  Everyone brings their own gift and we utilize those to the fullest.  Without hesitation, a TEAM of them just step up and step in to get things done πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Next, from Sheila Ellis and Commissioner Brian Ellis, this is what they had to say about “Run for the Wall” held in Hurricane at the Valley Park, WV:

‘From the county manager Jeremy Young, the Commission was asked to serve spaghetti and bbq to about 400 veterans and volunteers.

There were about 260 motorcycles at the event.

The older lady in pic with Brian is Anne Montague from Cross Lanes.  Anne spoke at the ceremony for the riders.  She calls herself a rosebud.  Her mother was Rosie the Riveter.  Anne is the Vice President and founder of the American Rosie Movement (ARM).

She fell in love with Brian and we ended up taking her home at the end of the evening due to her not driving.  It was a pleasure to serve.’ - by Asst. Treasurer, Sheila Ellis

Her husband, Brian (Associate Member) said: “it was an honor to be able to serve.”

Our Treasurer, Jane Ann Reed shared this:  ‘I was honored and grateful to be able to serve food to so many that have served our Country.  It was very moving.’

Our 1st Vice President, Teresa Sperandio Edwards shared:  ‘What an honor to serve our veterans. It was truly a blessing.”

On to our 2nd Vice President, Becky Richmond:  ‘It was an honor & a privilege to serve the veterans who were participating in the Run for the Wall commemoration ride.  Their dedication for those who cannot is awe inspiring. I hope they had a safe travels to the wall and also on there way home afterwards.’

Finally, today being Memorial Day, Commissioner Steve Deweese (Associate Member) was asked to speak at a special service held at Haven of Rest.  

Thank you to everyone of our members who continue to work and serve our County!
