Celebrating Two Anniversaries This Week!


 

Our Covington Office Celebrates One Year!  
Congratulations to Brenda Poletti, our (volunteer) office manager, and her all-volunteer office staff!  One year ago we acquired a beautiful office at 9401 NE Covington Road.  Brenda set a goal to keep it open every single weekday with consistent hours.  Because of her dedication and many wonderful volunteers she achieved the goal from the very first week.  Thank you to everyone who made this possible.  Your devotion to the success of the Clark County Republican Party is very evident and greatly admired!

Join us!  We are seeking additional office staff to support expanded hours during the election season and coming vacations.   If you can regularly take a ½ day shift once per week, want to help only on occasion, or you just want to applaud Brenda, contact her at: poletfam@yahoo.com.

The office is open Monday through Friday11:30am – 5:30pm.  Please stop in and thank a volunteer! 

Want to continue the success?  Many people have specifically chosen to help us keep the office open by scheduling regular monthly contributions.  We would love to have you as an office partner.  Set up your own scheduled contribution here.

Magna Carta Celebrates 800 years!
Magna Carta is the premier document in the field of human rights.  Magna Carta enshrines liberty in the law.  The 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta will be observed on Saturday, June 20 at 12:00 noon.  The event will be held at the bandstand just south of Officers Row, on the parade field at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Vancouver.  More information can be found here: http://www.magnacartaclarkcowa.org/ 

Meet a few of our PCOs: https://youtu.be/KGaFjTWN93Q
An inspiring 8 minute video of PCOs discussing the future of the party.  A Big Thank You to Dick Sohn for having the vision to produce it. 

Did you hear Dr. Keith Smith?  If you missed his incredible story of free-market medicine you have another chance as it is recorded here: http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/4453?start=4822&stop=8038.  This is a story about much more than merely quality medical care.

More photos!  This link was posted last week before many photos were uploaded.  If you clicked on the link beforeWednesday you probably missed most of them.  They can be found here.
