REPUBLICAN WOMEN OF PRESCOTT – Celebrating 75 Years in Prescott – The Largest Republican Women’s Club in the Nation!
The Republican Women of Prescott (RWOP) is the largest Federated Women’s Club in the nation with over 700 members. We are excited to be celebrating our 75th anniversary in Prescott dating back to 1942!
This year, President Linda Nichols, the Executive Committee and Board of Directors set goals to focus on our membership, recognize our many volunteers, and reach out to our community.
Each month, we enjoy a luncheon along with an engaging guest speaker and highlight a local charity selected by our Caring for America Committee. Our May luncheon program honored law enforcement. RWOP honors our veterans in November with a full military program and donates to Honor Flight each year. RWOP has made these two events an annual tribute. Throughout the month, we offer an evening of networking, invite new members to coffee, and host a forum that allows local leaders to discuss important issues.
Our largest event is our scholarship fundraiser for regional students. For the past three years we have held a featured speaker event that has included Dinesh D’Souza in 2015 and Judge Jeanine Pirro in 2016. This year, we hosted Lt. Col. Allen West. Each successful fundraising event has enabled us to offer our annual scholarship program. This year we gave $15,000 to ten deserving college-bound students in 2017!
The RWOP Executive Committee consists of the president, five vice presidents, the treasurer, secretary and a parliamentarian. Our board of directors consists of our past president, chaplain and historian, ten standing committee chairs, and seven special committee chairs. We have an online presence with our monthly newsletter as well as on Facebook. If you are looking to join an active and engaging organization visit us at RWOP.info. We welcome new members, as it is our membership that makes RWOP great!
