NCRWF members will welcome Roger Hedgecock to their Nov. 10 luncheon meeting at The Brigantine in La Mesa. Roger recently retired from his nationally syndicated radio talk show and is currently lending his talents to AM 760 KFMB radio and CBS 8 News. Known for his insightful political commentaries, we are eager to hear his thoughts on current local and national events.
Check-in time for the 11 a.m. meeting begins at 10:30 am. A full-course lunch will be served at noon with the speaker following at 12:45 p.m. Cost is $20 and reservations are required. Please mark your calendar and RSVP to NCRWF99@gmail.com or call Glenda at 619-284-9958. The millions who have heard Roger’s radio talk shows know that he is extremely knowledgeable, frank and easy to understand in his discussions.
San Diego County Republican Women will present an Action Track Chair to a deserving wounded warrior at their county convention Dec. 12. We are proud that our club raised most of the $20,000 cost of the chair and trailer that will allow a wounded warrior to traverse difficult terrain and regain the excitement and independence he once had. At our October luncheon meeting, we wrote notes of appreciation on 400 notecards our members had created to give to our military heroes on Veterans Day.
Oktoberfest in La Mesa was a great success registering Republicans and visiting with voters. More than 500 votes were cast in our straw poll. The top five Republican Presidential contenders were Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.
The date for our annual Christmas Party and installation of new officers for 2016 is Dec. 8. Marjie Siekerka has been an outstanding president for the past two years and provides leadership to keep us motivated, informed and energized. Waskah Whelan, past president of NCRWF, has completed two years as president of the San Diego County Republican Women and has been key to the success of that organization. NCRWF prides itself on leadership development and creating a positive atmosphere for members. Next year, we will harness our energy towards activities that will further advance Republican values and success at the ballot box!
