The Gillespie County Republican Women (GCRW) invite all Mason County Republicans to participate in their regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 18, 12:00 p.m. at the Gillespie County Law Enforcement Center. The speaker will be local resident and active member, Pauline Cusack. Each meeting contains an interesting and informative presentation.
Pauline has served in several capacities as a Republican leader for residents of Gillespie County including with the Texas Federation of Republican Women and National Federation of Republican Women. The presentation will explain the awards programs of the Texas and National Federations of Republican Women. TFRW and NFRW use awards programs to encourage local clubs such as GCRW to participate in literacy projects, political education, campaign activities, and community service.
In addition to fostering Republican principles, initiatives, and candidates, GCRW participates in various non-partisan activities. Community service projects of GCRW include donating items for the Hill Country Crisis Council and the Fredericksburg Food Pantry. GCRW promote education and literacy by providing dictionaries to all Gillespie County third graders, and donating books to libraries, schools, and charitable organizations. GCRW also sponsors some high school girls to attend the American Legion Auxiliary Girls State where they learn about the functioning of government.
This presentation will be an educational review for established members and an orientation for new members. It will be informative for any Republican interested in learning about what GCRW does. There will be discussions and opportunities for questions.
Light refreshments will be provided at 11:30 a.m. and attendees are invited to bring their sack lunch. Attendees are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items (canned goods, dried beans, etc) for contribution to the Fredericksburg Food Pantry.
