Program and Speakers for the Meeting
Since we are a relatively new group in the state, some notable Republican Women will conduct a panel for us and will be discussing some things we might do in order for our group to grow and be more successful. We hope everyone will attend this important meeting. We all need to be on the same page as to where we want our group to be this time next year and these women can give us some good suggestions on how to move forward with this group. This might be a good meeting for any group in town to attend who is trying to grow their group. Members of the panel will be:
- Judy Parada, SREC SD-3, TFRW Deputy President Region IV
- Julie Faubel - TFRW Public Relations and TX Star Editor and President of Montgomery County RW
- Ann Kate : Past President of North Shore RW, current Media Chairman will probably be joining us as well.
Please VOTE EARLY in Your Local Election on Saturday, May 9, then come for a free quilt workshop from 10 am - 4 pm at the Liberty Church of Christ Family Life Center, 3201 N. Main. The topic of the workshop will be How to Do Fusible Applique using Pre-Cut Kits.
There is no cost for the class and no experience required – if you can paint by number, you will be able to do this quilting technique. You will need to bring a small iron and an ironing pad. Other items needed will be small scissors and an applique press cloth if you have one; plus your favorite drinks / snacks / desserts for the day. For those who do not have an applique press cloth, we will provide some Parchment Paper for you. We are also going to be in need of ladies who know how to hand embroidery because we have a few places on these blocks that require hand embroidery. If you embroidery, call the number below to find out what color threads will be needed. Who knows we may have you teach a few of the ladies so they can help out on that part of the blocks.
The Liberty County Republican Women are making a quilt, called Happy Trails by Pearl P Pereira, (look up on the internet if you wish) which is a Baltimore Album-type quilt that will be used by the Republican Party as their raffle quilt for next year. Since there are so many blocks in this quilt, we thought it would be a perfect one to use as a teaching tool for this class and possibly get some of the blocks done at the same time. As you can tell, we need more ladies to help with our blocks. Consequently, you will not have to bring any fabrics to class, just the items listed above. We will not be doing any sewing at this workshop. For those who want to participate in the quilting or learn how to put the quilt blocks together, another workshop will be scheduled for that. On the label on the back of the quilt, we will have a list of all women in the county who worked on this quilt. Come join us and be part of our county's history in quilt form. Door prizes will be drawn occasionally throughout the event and you must be present to win.
Be sure to VOTE before you come to quilt so you won't miss out on any of our fun. Men are also invited to attend.
The Liberty County Republican Women are a group of Republican Women who want to make a difference in our government and in our community. We support the Republican beliefs and standards. We want to get women involved in the political system and to help raise money for our candidates. We help out with campaigns in any way possible and in fundraising events in our area. We also get information in the hands of other women about our party and our beliefs and why we should get out and vote. We also help out at the polls if needed. We encourage other women to help us out and to stand up for their beliefs. We also encourage women to run for office.
Mark next Tuesday, April 21 on your calendar. Our meeting will be at noon that day at The Liberty Opry Dining Room. Lunch will be available at 11:30 and the meeting will begin at noon. Try to bring a friend.

At another Quarterly Meeting with record breaking attendance on April 7th, Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett addressed members of the Liberty County Republican Party. Pickett described the challenges surrounding his job from budgetary issues to the 62% increase in cases due to growth in Liberty County. All in attendance found Pickett's presentation to be interesting as well as informative.
In other news, the Liberty County Republican Party discussed and approved 2016 fundraising efforts which included working with the Liberty County Republican Women's group in the raffling off of a quilt. Also, volunteers are being sought to man the Republican booth at Dayton Ole Tyme Days on April 17-19th. Anyone interested in helping out is invited to join us.
