East Valley Republican Women Federated -- located in the Palm Desert, La Quinta and Indio area of the Southern California desert -- is a strong, working club with more than 150 members.
East Valley raised money to support its Future Republicans Engaging in Education project to send students to the Ronald Reagan Ranch Conference in Santa Barbara, where they heard inspiring speakers and learned about the U.S. Constitution and government. We hand-picked these wonderful kids from schools in areas where they might never have an opportunity to see the ocean or learn about conservative values. After they attended the ranch program, we sent them to see stockbrokers, bankers, elected officials and others who could give them insight into things that will affect their lives.
An IPO project was developed to sell shares for scholarships to be given to graduating seniors who had attended the conference in return for their involvement in club community events. A share is purchased for $10, and each time they participate in one of these wonderful lessons, we sell more shares. Two boys who have been in the program only nine months have more than $1,200 in their college funds.
Republican women ... the future of our country is in your hands. Give kids in your area an opportunity like this. You will see strong youth with deep convictions in the ideals of our party and the strenth of a conservative nation.
