The Kentucky Federation of Republican Women
Message from our President, Carol Rogers
To all our
Republican Women's Club Presidents: Thank you for the
wonderful job each of you are doing in your local clubs. I
wanted to share several items with you:
Convention- As you know, this convention will be held right
here in our Commonwealth! It will be Sept. 20-22 at the Galt
House in Louisville. This is a great opportunity for us to
attend at the lowest cost (no airplane ticket to buy!) and
to show off our Kentucky. The convention is a great time to
learn more about politics, hear prominent speakers, and meet
great women from around the country. You will get more
information about registration, etc. from NFRW. Each club may
send one voting delegate and one alternate but any member can
attend. KFRW members are hard at work raising money and
preparing for this convention.
Henley, NFRW Convention Registration Chair needs your help!
She has sent the following request for volunteers to help
during the convention. If you can volunteer only two
hours, this will help! Here is her message:
September may seem like it is
still some time away but it will be here before we know it
and so will the 2013 NFRW Convention in Louisville. We are
still in need of many volunteers to help with registration
the week of Sept. 19th-22nd. We have received the name of
some volunteers but not nearly enough. We still need 30
volunteers on Thursday, Sept. 19th and 30 volunteers on
Friday, Sept. 20th, as well as 16 volunteers on Saturday,
Sept. 21st and 4 volunteers on Sunday morning, Sept. 22nd.
Volunteers can work in two hour increments starting at 8 a.m.
each morning. You can email me at
or call me on my cell phone 918-798-9571.
Thank you for your continued help and thank you to
those who have already volunteered.
Day- this was a great day in Frankfort as over 90 women
wearing red made a great showing. The speakers were all very
informative and the legislators all appreciated us being
there. Thirty five legislators were sponsored for lunch.
Thank you to Ann Cheek for organizing the day's events and to
House Republican Leader Jeff Hoover for sponsoring the day.
Please encourage all your club members to stay vigilant as to
what bills are being debated and voted on in Frankfort. It is
important for us to speak out about legislation as we really
do have an impact. The Legislative Message Line is
1-800-373-7181. You can go to
www.lrc.ky.gov to see
what bills are proposed, where the bills are in the process,
which committees bills are assigned to, and which legislators
serve on each committee. Let's all stay engaged and active in
the legislative process.
Be sure to send in your dues and service charge if you have
not already done so. The forms and address of the treasurer
are attached. Help Julie out by filling out your forms
legibly and accurately. Be sure to include email addresses
for members who have them; these are entered into our
Constant Contact system so that members can get information
directly from KFRW. Remember that you can add members at any
time. Be sure to ask new people to join and be sure you have
invited your elected officials and their spouses to become
members. Remember that men can be associate members of your
local clubs (Those names are not sent to KFRW).
We currently have clubs in less than 1/3 of Kentucky
counties. Please let us know of any people interested in
getting new groups going. Currently Henderson County is
working on forming a club and there is interest from Russell
County. Our governors are very willing to help get new groups
Scholarship- Did you know that the KFRW offers a $1,000
scholarship to a high school senior girl? If you know a
conservative young lady who is interested, have her contact
the guidance office at her high school. All schools have the
applications. Thank you to Tina Fox for coordinating this
KFRW has an outstanding web site thanks to Kathye Schattner-
our web master! If you have any pictures, calendar events, or
other news please send it to her so she can share it.

facebook group, check that out as well - Kentucky Republican
sure to utilize the NFRW web site
www.nfrw.org. The user name is federation and the
password is nfrw1938. This site has lots of valuable
information for your clubs. One thing you might want to pay
attention to is the Achievement Awards. These will be
recognized at the Convention and your club can still be
working to fulfill the requirements. The activities listed
for awards are the things that help all our clubs be strong
Thank you again for your leadership!
