President's Message September 2017
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer with activities that filled your spirit and provided an opportunity to rejuvenate! So, while many of us relaxed or traveled, others participated in our community! At the end of June many of you enjoyed our Elephant Happy Hour Wine Social, graciously hosted at the home of Julienne Chené and assisted by our Membership Chair, Crystal Bonham. (See our Gallery for pictures for the event)
In August, some of you attended a free event held at the Irvine Hotel, the Women2Women Conversations Tour and heard a discussion on ways to empower Women Entrepreneurs with special guest Laguna Niguel Congresswoman Mimi Walters and business woman Tina Aldatz, CEO Savvy Traveler & founder of Foot Pedals. Some of you staffed the voter registration booth at the Orange County Fair or worked as a Docent at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach!
But now that the kids have returned to school and the summer traffic has died down a bit, let’s refocus our energy for some great opportunities to participate as Republican Women!
At our upcoming September 13th General Meeting, Caleb Bonham will speak to us on how to effectively motivate Millennial’s participation in the political arena by focusing on what they are most interested in, their local community!
Caleb has been a commentator on the local and national scene including Fox News.
So don’t miss this opportunity to come learn and ask questions!
Check out the opportunities to attend one of two RWF Conventions that will be taking place in California in October.
I think you will want to join your fellow SCARWF friends at our Theater Party Fundraiser set for October 1st at the Cabrillo Theater featuring a great classic musical, Cabaret! You can purchase your tickets at our September meeting or at our website.
Mid October will give you a special opportunity to get ready for the challenges of the 2018 mid-term elections when we bring Nationally Syndicated political commentator and Superior Court Judge Jeanine Pirro to speak to us in Orange County!
Yes, that’s right ladies and gentlemen, SCARWF and Aliso Viejo RWF Unit Clubs have teamed up with the Lincoln Club of Orange County to put together a Special Evening Speaker event with Judge Jeanine that you won’t want to miss on Wednesday, October 11th! Be on the look-out for details to be posted on the website for an opportunity to make your paid reservation for both events!
