President's Message

Welcome to our May newsletter. 
My trip to Tallahassee  and the Florida  Federation of Republican Women Conference  was very successful. 

More details on this will be forthcoming  by email as a Special Conference  Report prepared by Recording  Secretary Marlene Frye, 

Plans were confirmed and eagerly received by the attendees  to attend the FFRW 2017 Convention, which our club is hosting, October 27 - 29 at the International Palms Resort  in  Cocoa Beach.  

 Thank you to our member Gerry Blanchard  for coordinating the event and handling all reservations. 
As the host club, we will be needing your assistance in preparing goody bags for all attendees  and for the Club Hospitality  Suite.  

More details, reservations information will be sent out separately by email. 

Our Fundraising Committee has recently launched a " Sponsorship Program" to help with continued financial support for our club programs. 

There are three levels of Sponsorship, which are available for either personal or business participation. 
These Sponsorships are open to non members as well as members.

First Responders Prayer Chain 

The First Responders Prayer Chain is a group of BFRW member volunteers who are dedicated to praying  for situations with members who are in need of prayer or have specific prayer requests.

The importance of the prayer chain is that it faithfully intercedes on behalf of others in need by lifting up specific requests, concerns and emergency situations.  

Contact Chaplain Patti Febro at  321-239-5873 for prayer.

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for being part of a prayer chain.  Before people agree to join, they should be clear on what it is expected of each member:
