Stillwater Republican Women: The regular monthly meeting of September 12th consisted of three guest speakers that included Forrest Mandeville, Senator Jason Priest and Derek Skees, candidate for State Auditor.

September 17, 2012 marked the 225th Birthday of the United States of America. Plans have been in the works to be a co-sponsor of a “Constitutional Seminar” for Stillwater County. SRW is looking for this to be a county wide event drawing support from businesspeople & individuals. The seminar is an all day workshop on a Saturday with the instructor being from the “National Center for Constitutional Studies”. The goal is to be able to offer a scholarship for a graduating High School Senior or home schooling student with the criteria being based on the “Constitution”.

Paula Newkirk advised the group that September is the Barbara Bush Literacy Program/Literacy Month. Suggest you check out the library:“The Signers”-stories behind the Declaration of Independence and “The Founders” – the U.S. Constitution both by Dennis Brindell Fradin.

A  nominating committee was appointed for the upcoming election of officers for 2013-2014.  Under the leadership of Bertie Harper & Pat Bruce, the ladies hit Hwy 78 for a workday of collecting “Litter”.

The WWII poster of the “Rivet Lady” – flexing her muscle with the caption “WE CAN DO IT” says it all. Thank you ladies for your continued dedication & support in everything we do.

VOTE on November 6th.
