A message from
Lyn Bliss

September 2014

Hi to Ohio's great Republican Women -

The OFRW Fall Gathering is over and we have had a grand weekend. There were a record number of participants in the various events offered -- Legacy Luncheon, Friday Night Dinner, Board Meeting, Saturday Conference and Ice Cream Social.

The workshops were very informative and everyone should have something to take back to their clubs.

The next big OFRW event will be the Cardinal Fund Event on December 5. If you have not sent your contribution yet, please do so. Click HERE for the forms.

The Cardinal Fund committee is busily getting requests (with handwritten notes) out to everyone asking for support  - and we are getting a great response! The Cardinal Thank You event will be held at the Governor's Residence on December 5 -- a high tea - with some special celebrities pouring the tea and exquisite entertainment. Watch for more information.

The NFRW will be hosting its Board Meeting in Dallas September 18-20. All OFRW members are welcome to attend. For the official Call to the meeting, click HERE

This should be the busiest time of the year for all Republican Women as we concentrate all of our efforts on what is our main objective -- getting Republican candidates elected at all levels. Hopefully, we are not being distracted by anything that could draw our focus away from those efforts.

God Bless the United States of America!

  Respectfully yours,

Lyn Bliss, President

Not Sure Why Your Club Is Shrinking

Ask these questions:

  • Are the meeting time, location and format convenient for ladies with families and/or young professionals?
  • Does my club reflect the professional diversity, age, and gender of the Republican community in my area?
  • Do the programs offered by my club represent a wide range of interests?
  • Does my club concentrate on candidate activities and also: club business, speakers, networking  and project planning?
  • When my club has a guest, do we have a plan in place to contact that guest after the meeting?

Bolton Women's Republican Club
Holds Annual
Cupcake Social

Fran DeWine was the special guest at the Bolton Women's Republican  Club Annual Cupcake Social event held recently in Lake County.

A wonderful time was had hearing from the candidates and/or the spouses/family member, no men allowed at this event!! The event was a big success providing a platform for Republican women to spend time in conversation in a social environment educating ourselves on the issues and our candidates not to mention getting to meet folks and enjoying a lovely dinner.

Fran DeWine was such a fun speaker she even brought her grand daughter along. We also were the recipients of her latest cook book.
