Charting a course for 2017
2017 is here – if you have not already done so, you need to get plans
for each month of the year in place. Also, your committee chairs should
all be in place by the end of January.
Additionally a budget should be prepared by the club officers and/or
your Board, to be presented to the general membership at the
first meeting of the year. This should list anticipated income
and expenditures for the upcoming year.
list of your club officers needs to be submitted to OFRW before January
15. Click HERE for the form. You might consider
having your treasurer send the annual $15 club service fee to OFRW
Treasurer now, so that is done. This is a fee charged by NFRW to all
Federated Clubs. The OFRW collects that amount and forwards it on fully
Your committee chairs might mirror those of the OFRW/NFRW so they can

those things are done, sit down with each committee chair and talk
about their job and what they
have in mind for the upcoming year. Ask them to provide at least one
goal for their committee to achieve during the upcoming year. This is
not your goal, it is the committee’s goal – if it makes sense and will
further the goals of the club, be encouraging……you can claim equal
credit because it happened while you were presiding.

|NOTICE TO CLUB TREASURERS
The OFRW has prepared a form
that can be used to present the monthly treasurer's report. A
report should be prepared and given at each club meeting. These reports
are never approved at a meeting, as club members do not have
access to receipts and statements covered in the report. The monthly
treasurer's reports are simply accepted by the President and
the statement made that the report will be filed for review.
copy is then included with the minutes for that meeting. At the end of
the membership year, all reports for the year should be submitted to a
review committee - along with all of the supporting documentation
(deposit receipts, statements, bills, monthly bank statements,
etc.). The review committee should present its report covering the
previous year's financila activities of the club at the first
meeting of each membership year -- and this is what is given

think it's safe to say that we share a feeling of relief and a sense of
renewed optimism about the direction of the country with the new
administration. We look forward hopefully to a rollback of
excessive taxation and crippling regulations so that the business
climate can be more inviting and opportunities more available for
ordinary Americans. We hope to see changes that will allow us
to have greater peace and more security, domestically and
internationally. We want changes in health care and education
that allow transparency and personal choice and halt the trends that
increase costs and decrease accessibility. We especially want
protection of our Constitutional rights and renewed respect for
traditional American values.
We have four years, at least, to make a difference in our
community. We have had a number of great opportunities to
become educated about issues and events. Now, we have an
opportunity to put our knowledge, our values, and our hearts and minds
into action. Even small things, done with great love and
intentionality, can make large differences.

Make Christmas Donation
to City of Findlay Police Department
L to R: President Linda
Casey, Jerry Casey, Secretary Miranda Lobdell, CFPD Officer
Brian White & CFPD Chef Greg Horne
CFPD posted the following on its Facebook Page: "We would like to thank
the Hancock County Republican Women for stopping by the police
department this afternoon and donating two Graco convertible child
seats to the police department.
Occasionally officers are sent
on calls, such as child removals for neglect issues, where children
need transported to the police department and police cruisers are not
usually equipped for this. In these cases, sometimes in the middle of
the night, other family members or agencies are contacted for
transportation which can take time and tie up officers.
The seats that were donated will be one more additional tool that
officers can utilize in these cases. Thanks again to them."

of the Ohio Federation of Republican Women
is to inform, engage and advocate for the principles
set forth by the Republican Party
I am not racist. I am not homophobic. I am not sexist. I am not a
misogynist. I am for free market. I am for stronger foreign policy. I
am for small business. I am for my family. I am Republican.
With the results of the presidential election stirring up a vast amount
of emotions, I think it is important to clarify something: just because
I am Republican does not mean I am heartless. The point of this is not
to debate political policies. It is to highlight what it felt like to
be a Republican college student the day after Donald Trump was elected
President of the United States.
On November 9th, I went to class and in every single one there was a
somber attitude. Pre-lecture discussions were filled with phrases like
“I am scared for our future”, “I am scared to be gay”, “How did this
happen?”, and, by far the most bothersome, “People that voted for Trump
are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic selfish red necks”. Even
my professors opened class with the assumption that everyone was sad
about the result of the election by saying things like, “let’s not talk
about last night. Ever.” or “No class on Friday. I’m house hunting in
