President's Message

Happy New Year Republicans!



Is is with gratitude and excitement that I write this first message.  Thank you for trusting me to serve as an Ambassador of WCRW.  I look forward to representing our club and to working with all of you in our efforts to support Republicans in Williamson County.
I would like to thank the rest of our leadership team for a successful planning day Saturday, December 14th.  We have so many smart and talented ladies in our club that worked hard to plan for the upcoming year.  A special thank you to Debbie Simmons, our 2nd Vice President for hosting the ladies of our leadership team in her home!  It is selfless leaders like Debbie that make this the best place to volunteer!  Thank you!  We are still looking for a few more key people to get involved in various committees within our club.  If you are interested in contributing your talents, please contact me at president@wilcorw.org

We have a special program planned for January featuring Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman.   Please join us and help give him a warm welcome!
Thank you again for your continued support of the Williamson County Republican Women.
Here's to a great 2014!

   
Sincerely,
Marci Revelle
President
