After two-year hiatus, 50-year-old club reorganizes with new mission, members
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 15, 2018
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) has approved the charter of a new Republican women’s club in Washington.
South Whidbey Republican Women was chartered on June 6 with 21 members. Mary Jane Olson of Clinton, Wash., will lead the club during its first term. Club meetings are held during lunchtime at the Henny House in Clinton.
“The NFRW is pleased to welcome this club into our nationwide network of grassroots leaders,” NFRW President Jody Rushton said. “We look forward to working with Mary Jane and club members to promote Republican principles and elect Republican candidates during this 2018 election cycle and beyond.”
Annual club dues are $30. These dues also cover membership in the NFRW and in the Washington Federation of Republican Women.
“South Whidbey Republican Women was originally chartered in 1967, and, after disbanding in 2016, we have reorganized with many new, young, enthusiastic members,” Olson said. “We want to be a voice of influence in our community, and will work to empower and educate women, encourage qualified women to run for office and support them when they do. We are hosting and advertising special events to recruit additional members, and it’s paying off."
Whidbey is the larger of two islands in Island County. It is located about 35 miles northwest of Seattle, and is home to NAS Whidbey.

Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and inform the media.
