The first meeting of the newly revived Liberty County Republican Women’s Club was held on Jan. 18 at Liberty House.
With over 25 women in attendance, there was much fellowship and excellent discussion on several topics, including ways to get our younger community members interested and invested in the voting process and potential scholarship opportunities for graduating seniors across Liberty County.
“ We are more than just a group of women who love their country and community. We are a group of women who are committed to conservative principles and will work to engage and educate our community about the importance of preserving the rights and freedoms that we enjoy as citizens of the greatest nation in the world,” says Sarah Vickery, Club President. “We welcome all conservative women in Liberty County to join us, no matter what part of the county you live in or how long you’ve lived there. We have an amazing Executive Board and an awesome membership roster. We are definitely on our way to making positive impacts across Liberty County.”
An immediate project will be to fund scholarship opportunities for deserving high school students this coming spring. Essays and applications will allow students to carefully research and consider the principles of limited government and individual responsibility.
The group’s goal is to raise $3,000, and to date, $2,500 has been pledged by generous donors Michelle Mangum-Merendino and Darla Elder. Anyone who would like to contribute to this endeavor can mail a check to LCRW, with the memo “ Scholarship” in the memo line, to PO Box 367, Liberty, TX 77575.
The Liberty County Republican Women’s Club will sponsor the refreshments table at the Primary Debate hosted by The Vindicator on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m. at the Dayton Community Center.
