A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
WE HAVE THE POWER
For those of us that believe we are part of God’s amazing creation, we know in our heart of hearts that God is in control. He is in control of this world and all that is in it.
As the frightening current events unfold around us, we have the unfailing power of prayer.
My family and I are from Canada and moved to the US to get away from socialism. It is alarming that so many in this wonderful country are starting to embrace socialism.
The liberal agenda has succeeded in shutting up the dialog that would bring more balance to our politics of today. The liberal media spends their time bashing our President over the most ridiculous things and neglects to inform us of the good things he is accomplishing. 
All of us who believe must join together in prayer and ask God to let truth prevail, cause lies and deceit to be exposed and our nations leaders to become more concerned about what is good for this country, rather than making conservative values look out dated and bigoted.

Ellie Ownbey, President
OUR PROGRAM FOR MAY
Please join us for our May 6th luncheon. Check begins at 11 AM, Lunch served at 11:30 AM and guest speaker at noon.
The subject of our guest speaker for this upcoming luncheon is "Finding Your Voice". The speaker is "you".  Oh, not in
front of the entire room, just at your own table. We are going to have a very fun and different time of learning. We will
have a set of prepared questions that will be presented at each table. Then we will each have the opportunity to discuss
these topics together. Other clubs have done this program and just love it. This is a "can't afford to miss it" time
one another.  Please call Vicki Malloy at 509-860-1683 or e-mail Vicki a t   Luncheon RSVP   with your reservation.
k about the purpose of your email: You want readers to respond in a certain way, so use specific call-to-actions such as visit our website, shop the sale now, or sign up for specials.

LEGISLATIVE NEWS

Democrats are proposing billions more in new and increased taxes, including a B&O tax. The Senate has passed HB 1110 which Republican minority leader, Senator Mark Schoesler has said will cause the price of gas to skyrocket and the funds will not be used to benefit roads. General Fund revenue estimates are already 18.1 percent higher than the 2015-17 budget period.  The legislature is due to adjourn April 28 th and Republicans are bracing for the final experience of having a democrat house, senate and governor who is running for president on a platform based on climate change.

Its time to let new people see who we are and get to know us! It will give CDRW increased visibility AND…………….its going to be fun! We are serving refreshment and a $5.00 pizza meal will also be available. Save the date and bring a friend. We need support from every member to make this an event to remember!

We will be asking our auditors about Washington State’s new primary date! How will that affect the way we select delegates during the next presidential race? There have been 5 other changes to our states voter laws. Do you know what they are? Come and get your questions answered in a relaxed atmosphere while munching on pizza. 


CDRW members pass a Resolution to:
“PROTECT OUR VOTING RIGHTS RESOLUTION”

At our April 1 meeting, members passed a resolution stating that they oppose non U.S. citizens voting in local, state and federal elections. It had unanimous support. It has been forwarded to our State organization (WFRW) to be voted on at their May meeting and from there we are asking that it be sent on to our national organization (NFRW) requesting that they also adopt. it. 

This resolution came from our legislative committee in response to a major shift by democrats away from supporting federal law that specifically allows only U.S. Citizens to vote in national elections.   San Francisco is now allowing noncitizens to vote in local school board elections. In March, during discussion of a federal bill (H.R.1),  democrats voted to defend illegal immigrant voting in our elections. One democrat senator stated “We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in”. To read the entire resolution, go to our CDRW web page. cdrwclub.org/Legislation.

CARING FOR AMERICA FOR MAY
May's charity will be "Royal Family Kids". This is an international camp for foster children ages 6-12 who have been abused, abandoned, and neglected. Many have had their lives affected by drug abuse, sex trafficking, homelessness and jail. We have approximately 3500 children in foster care in Washington and RFKs are serving 500 in 13 summer camps, including Wenatchee which is sponsored by Grace City Church and directed by April and Bryan Burnett. We were fortunate to have the Burnetts tell us about this worthy endeavor several months ago. The purpose of the camp is to give these kids positive memories in a safe place away from the chaos of their lives and give them royal treatment in a Christian camp environment.  Camp runs Aug 19-23. We would appreciate any financial donations that you can spare.
