Ohio Federation Travels to Arlington Cemetery for Wreaths across America
Ohio Federation members participate in Wreaths across America (l-r) Hershel Fee, Barbara Ann Fee, Margorie Williams, Sandy Feix and Delores Ely.
It was a beautiful and meaningful day as 19 members from 10 clubs in the Ohio Federation of Republican Women (and three guests) joined 70,000 volunteers from across America to lay 241,408 wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday, December 12. Topping off what Ohio FRW President Lyn Bliss describes as a FANTASTIC weekend were a late lunch at the U.S. Capitol, visits to Union Station and the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Sunday services at the Washington National Cathedral.
Making the Move
Missouri's Carrie Almond (4th from left) is preparing to begin her two-year term as President of the NFRW on January 1. During her tenure, Carrie will live in Alexandria, VA, where the NFRW headquarters is located. The local club (the Commonwealth Republican Women) welcomed her warmly last week when she joined them for their annual holiday party and officer installation.
