Welcome to LARWC
We are a group of Republican women (and men) with like-minded beliefs joined together to make a difference in our community.
When We Meet
We meet five times a year for Lunch on the third (3rd) Wednesday of each month, May through September and lately have added a 'Field Trip' in October to a local organization of interest. For 2019, we are planning a trip to the American Legion Campground with hopes of tying in a philanthropic focus on them in 2020. We currently have 3 meetings with a Political Speaker / Focus and 2 meetings with a Social issue Speaker / Focus. We also have a philanthropic committee which supports a local need through funds collected within our membership. For the past four years, our club has purchased Books for our 5 local schools - Grade School thru High School, and the Minocqua Library. In 2018 we had a great response to our project focus on the Homeless with a 'Giving' collection done in May. For 2019 our project is a Cuddly Stuffed Animal given to our EMS members to carry in their many vehicles when responding to emergency calls of all kinds and children are frightened or traumatized in any way. We hope to equip about 150 vehicles with more than one 'critter' so that responses can be covered for 2019 at least.
We invite anyone who supports our cause to join this group. Please use the contact button or membership form if you are interested in attending or becoming a member.
