Paso Robles Republican Women Federated

Paso Robles Republican Women Federated was chartered on May 4, 1925 and has been an active club since 1964. Many of our past members, and some of our present members, are from pioneer families from the Paso Robles, San Miguel, and Templeton areas.

At present time, several of our members hold offices with CFRW, in both State and Central Division capacities. Our club has won the Diamond Club Award twelve times, which is bestowed to clubs achieving the high achievement goals set forth by CFRW. It is a two-year project, and PRRWF has already begun working toward a high point total for 2015.

So far, 2014 has been a very busy year with the primary elections on June 3rd. Many of our members have been very active in local campaigns, volunteering to walk precincts, helping with fundraisers, and phoning voters to ask their support for a particular candidate. After the primary election on June 3rd, we will then be able to get “boots on the ground” to work for our 24th District Congressional candidate. Our members will do their share to work the Republican Booth at the Mid-State Fair, handing out campaign brochures for our Republican candidates and registering voters.

The Paso Robles Republican Women Federated is a Traditions Sponsor for the 125th Paso Robles Anniversary, and donated $500 toward the celebration events that will take place throughout the year. A few of our other outreach activities include participation in the Fourth of July and October Pioneer Day parades in Paso Robles, the collection and donation of teddy bears and women’s shoes to local charities, $500 scholarships awarded to two Paso Robles high school seniors, and volunteering as Salvation Army Bell Ringers during the Christmas holiday period.

Throughout the year, our luncheon meeting speakers inform and educate our members on both local and national issues. Our club was the first to hold a Forum with the five Republican candidates for the 24th Congressional District to oppose Lois Capps in November. We are enlisting member volunteers for training in the Election Integrity Project prior to the November elections to enable us to be election observers at several of our local polling locations.

As you can see, we have a very active and energetic group of ladies in our club, and since one of our mottos is “Strength in Numbers,” we are working diligently to increase our membership totals. Our goal is to have 100 members by the end of 2014. We currently have 85 members, up from 78 at the end of 2013, so we are well on the way to reach our goal.
