Even though we don’t meet as often in the summer, the summer managed to fly by. But with only one regular meeting back at Rock Creek Country Club, we still kept busy with the garage sale in July, the Wine Social in August, the Membership Social also in August and our Candidates Banquet and District 1 Luncheon, both in September.
What a team I have. The members led by Ways and Means really stepped up to our Garage Sale again this year pulling in just short of $2000. And what about Gary’s book sales of over $1000, all donated to the Club. Barely rested from the Garage Sale, we took a break to have a new social event, complete with souvenir wine glasses. Even though it wasn’t intended to be a fund raiser, we managed to raise a few hundred dollars. Holly’s backyard made for a beautiful setting for this event.
In August, we held our Annual Membership Social. No shortage of meatballs and other great food at this one. Once again, Laurel was an awesome hostess. We had almost as many guests as members and managed to sign several of these up for membership.
September was a particularly busy month. First, we participated in the annual District luncheon where our own Melissa Laird was elected as District Director. This was immediately followed by our annual Candidate Banquet. During the Banquet, we added a Dessert Dash to the festivities and along with the calories, it brought in quite a bit of money. The Candidates had a lot to share and it was inter- esting to hear what Dallas Heard had to say about his vision for the ORP. The fol- lowing week, several of use went to Florida for the Biennial NFRW Convention. What an uplifting experience that was! It really gave us hope for America.
Fourth quarter has a lot to look forward to as well. First is our OFRW Convention in Bend in mid-October. Of course we will have luncheons in both October and No- vember and our holiday event in December. In between all that, we will have Officer Elections and a vote on our updated By-laws. You just can’t slow us Republican women down.
