Dear GHC family,

Sophia MafrigeOne word that comes to mind as I write this letter is ‘Snowstorm’!!! Did anyone think that in addition to the Covid pandemic and social unrest this year, we would be dealing the impact of a historic state-wide snow and ice storm this past month? Everyone in our GHC counties was impacted in some way. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone who suffered as a result of the storm. At our General meeting on March 16th, we will be collecting food and necessities for the Houston Food Bank. According to their website, the “Houston Food Bank is the largest food bank in the United States in size and distribution. We serve a network of 1,500 community partners in 18 southeast Texas counties, including food pantries, soup kitchens, meal sites and shelters.” The counties they serve include many of GHC’s member clubs in Brazoria, Chambers, Ft. Bend, Galveston, Harris, Montgomery, Walker and Waller Counties. The Houston Food Bank has specifically requested that we collect the following items as high priority:
 
     * Granola bars and other protein snacks
     * Cereal/oatmeal
     * Paper plates/cups/utensils
     * Water
     * Toilet paper
     * Paper towels
 
Please bring these items to the meeting on March 16th, and help make a difference to those impacted by the storm.

In dealing with one crisis after another, our Republican women have stepped up and shown strength, fortitude and resilience. This month, GHC will honor your 2021 Club Presidents at our General meeting. Their leadership this year will be critical as we set our eyes on the 2022 elections, and work towards regaining local and national seats.

We will also present our annual Nuts and Bolts Seminar, in conjunction with TFRW, on March 16th. Capacity is limited, so you’ll want to register as soon as possible. The deadline to register this year is March 5th, and we will not be able to admit anyone at the door who did not pre-register, so please act quickly! The registration form for everyone to submit is included in this newsletter and available on our website, www.ghcfrwpac.org. You may pay by credit card on the website, by using the following link. We are excited to have 9 great speakers for 8 sessions, plus TFRW’s President, Glynis Chester, participating in the program. And, our keynote speaker is Jody Rushton, Past President of TFRW and NFRW. You won’t want to miss hearing from these inspiring Republican women!

Please mark your calendars now for our May 18th General Meeting, as we pay tribute to our military and host Republican Party of Texas Chairman, Lt. Col. Allen West as our guest speaker!

In closing, I share a verse from the Bible: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7. More challenges may come our way, but I pray for you to stay strong, healthy and steadfast in our mission, as we work to preserve our conservative values in this great country. God bless Texas and the USA!

Warm Regards,
Sophia Mafrige
GHCFRW President

The Greater Houston Council of Federated Republican Women does not condone racism by any manner, or by any person. We are a diverse, multi-county organization. It is up to members of the local county parties, and their executive committees, to take action if they deem necessary. Meanwhile, we will continue to work for our Republican causes and candidates.
