Sacramento Republican Federated Women was chartered a National Federation Republican Club in 1932. We have historically helped Political candidates become elected. Therefore, we will not lose hope and settle with this new administration. Settling requires no risk. The late Ronald Reagan said, “We are never defeated unless we give up on God.” We are not giving up, although we do not see the future, we are trusting God will guide us, protect us, and grant us wisdom. We are working together with other like minded Republicans to be trained and equipped for this hour. Consider volunteering with the following:
Sacramento Republican Women Federated Club: If you have not renewed or joined, consider joining the SRWF Club which now has two meetings for one $40 membership. Our Club attracts, develops, and releases women to enter leadership roles within the Federated or in the Civic, Business, or the Professional Community. Our day meeting is the first Wednesday at noon at North Ridge Country Club and the Evening meeting is the first Thursday at 6 p.m. held at the Sacramento County GOP Office at 9851 Horn Road, Sacramento, 95827.
Sacramento County GOP Headquarters: Our member Sacramento County GOP Chairperson Betsy Mahan needs your support in building a culture of informed, active, Republicans. The SacCountyGOP volunteers brought in hundreds of signatures for the Recall of Governor Newsom and made over 11,000 calls to voters reminding them of the importance of signing the petition. Consider making a monthly or quarterly recurring donation to continue with the success we had with the 45-squared Club. Their new recurring 1776 Donor Club will include special briefings and event discounts for Club Members donating a minimum of $17.76 per month or $76 per quarter.
