Tragedy often serves as a wake-up call to the heart, urging strangers to step away from themselves & move toward others. We see this in so many instances with the the devestation Hurricane Harvey has caused in Texas & Louisiana. We witnessed it on Sep tember 11. In both instances we saw heroes and found them to be ordinary people to whom we will be forever grateful. They all deserve our love & continuing prayers.
Our June picnic was a huge success. Our speaker, Jeremiah Pauley, spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project, shared his heart warming story. SRRWF was able to send a $638.00 check to Wounded Warriors which included a club donation as well as individual donations.
Rosalie Bulach is hosting a new member wine & cheese event for Oakmont Republicans. In addition to meeting like minded women, the Club promotes political education and activity plus the election of Republicans at local, state and federal levels. We can't thank Rosalie Bulach enough for opening up her lovely home for these events.
Caroline Hall & I have been attending Citizen Police Academy classes. This is an absolutely wonderful program and I thank Capt Ray Navarro who spoke at our meeting a few months ago for telling me about it. As you all know, these days the cops are the bad guys. Well it just isn't so! My vision is that this program would make a worthwhile "Caring for America" project. In the coming months, I will elaborate & take you through what we learned. Have you even thought you might like to shoot a "taser gun?" I will tell you how this is possible.
At our General Meeting, September 26, we will be passing a collection basket for the many folks in Texas and Louisiana as well as making a donation in the name of SRRWF. There are approximately 50 sister Republican clubs in the area that desperately need our help.
