Recently, a group of Republican friends from San Diego and I embarked on an unforgettable trip to Washington, D.C. that lasted over a week. Throughout our journey, we had the pleasure of engaging in numerous memorable experiences. However, amidst all the remarkable moments, one particular day stood out and remains etched in my mind as my absolute favorite.

During our time in the capital city, we had the honor of attending a prestigious event—the First Ladies luncheon organized by The Congressional Club. What began as a breakfast in 1912 to honor First Lady Nellie Taft had evolved into this distinguished luncheon, graced by every First Lady since its inception. The remarkable aspect of this event was its nonpartisan nature, as The Congressional Club aimed to bring people together beyond political affiliations.

On the memorable day of May 17th, accompanied by my dear friend Lynne Hunter, wife of Congressman Duncan L. Hunter from San Diego, we arrived at the luncheon with eager anticipation. However, we had arrived a week early, allowing us ample time to explore the entertainment and historical offerings of Washington, D.C. Another esteemed member, Pamela Herger, the wife of Congressman Wally Herger from Yuba City, also joined us for the event. Pamela's granddaughter, the radiant Reagan, had the honor of serving as one of this year's hosts, and she captivated everyone with her grace and elegance as she walked the stage in her pink and white suit.

After the luncheon, we had the privilege of visiting Congressman Darrell Issa from San Diego, who represents District 48. However, upon our arrival at his office, we discovered that he was still on the House Floor participating in a crucial vote. Despite this setback, his assistant, Sally, graciously offered to escort us to the Gallery, granting us a unique opportunity to witness Congress in action. From our vantage point, we observed the legislators deliberating and voting on H.R. 3091, the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Service Weapon Purchase Act. It was an awe-inspiring experience to witness the legislative process firsthand, and amid the crowd, I even recognized the familiar face of Congressman Kevin Kiley.

As our day in the Capitol came to a close, an unexpected commotion erupted on the steps. When I turned around, I found myself in the midst of a captivating scene—a confrontation between Congressman George Santos and a group of his fellow peers. Just a few feet away, a heated argument unfolded between two prominent figures, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). To my astonishment, I found myself in an unexpectedly intriguing position, with both individuals standing on either side of me.

This extraordinary day, filled with the grandeur of the First Ladies luncheon, the firsthand view of Congress in session, and the unexpected encounter between prominent politicians, will forever remain ingrained in my memory. It served as a reminder of the rich tapestry of history and the diverse perspectives that shape our nation's capital.

To all the amazing dads out there, whether they are human or have fur-kids, Happy Father's Day! Your love, guidance, and presence make a world of difference in our lives. Thank you for being there, for your unwavering support, and for the boundless love you give. You are truly cherished.

A friendly reminder: our next luncheon is on June 14th, coinciding with President Trump's birthday and Flag Day! After that, it's time to kick back, unwind, recharge, and soak up the sun. Enjoy a well-deserved break, and we'll be thrilled to see you again at our next meeting on September 20th! Let the fun begin! 

In infinite appreciation,

It’s been nearly a year since the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. While many states passed laws limiting abortions, California lawmakers went to work in the opposite direction, passing more than a dozen laws designed to block pregnancy care clinics from helping families facing unexpected pregnancies. 

On April 25, we attended a hearing on AB 710, a bill that sought to discredit pregnancy clinics and were able to voice our opposition to it. Alternatives Pregnancy Center staff represented pregnancy clinics throughout California by telling the truth about what they do to help families in unexpected pregnancies. Read the email below to learn more about the hearing.

GOOD NEWS! As of May 18, AB 710 died in the Assembly Appropriations Committee! It can be reintroduced next year as a new bill, but for this year we can celebrate this as a win! We are thankful for all of you at the SRWF for your support and prayers for the vital and courageous work of local pregnancy clinics.

Alternatives just opened their new clinic at 8689 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento. Join your SRWF friends for a tour on Monday, June 19th at

1 pm. You don’t want to miss this! Let Amy know if you can come by texting or calling her: (916) 952-8222.
