A Message From ACRW President, Donna Skipper:
Thank you for visiting the Azalea City Republican Women’s web site. On here you will see information about our club, programs, meetings, and activities. We will have changes from time to time, so please visit often.
ACRW celebrates 40 years! Thanks to the ladies who had the vision and formed Azalea City Republican Women in 1974! ACRW has been an active element in Mobile’s political scene since that time!
We believe in family values, low taxes, and honest and accountable government. We strive to help elect strong Republican men and women who share these values. ACRW membership includes several state and local elected officials, as well as other hardworking, committed Republican women. We also have a good group of associate members consisting of men and women.
Let me encourage you to consider joining our efforts and promoting our theme, “Making a Difference”.
It truly is great to be a “Lady in Red”!
Congratulations to ACRW for achieving SILVER Status for 2012-2013!
Azalea City Republican Women kicked off the year by honoring four vets with Quilts of Valor. These beautiful quilts were made by a women’s quilting group from Mobile and Baldwin County and were presented to men who have seen combat locally and/or abroad. ACRW’s recipients for this year were:
Sidney Biehl, WWII Vet
John Wilemon, Vietnam Medic
Endel Lee, Navy Chaplain
Chris Montgomery, Marine Corp
Another special guest at January’s meeting was Aiden Bonner, recipient of ACRW’s Christmas gift of love. Aiden suffers from Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
Looking forward to the months ahead as we continue to enjoy being Mobile’s “Ladies in Red”!
“Politics make it possible; …women make it work!”
Azalea City Republican Women, established in 1974, (now the oldest existing Republican Women’s group in Mobile County) convenes the 2nd Thursday of each month for a 6:00 pm dinner meeting at Heron Lakes Country Club. The aim of its members is to be active politically, to be informed on issues and candidates, to promote conservative ideas and ideals, and to support Republican candidates who share their philosophy.
