Members of Kingwood Area Republican Women (KARW) are a diverse mix of hometowns and nationalities spanning the United States and the world. This is evidenced by the sounds of the Southern drawl, New England crispness, Midwestern twang, West Coast accent, and numerous other accents that are heard.
KARW encompasses towns in the northeast corner of Harris County, Texas -- many are part of the cosmopolitan city of Houston. These towns range from rural to urban, and members reflect this diversity.
The year started off with members attending the inauguration of the new Texas governor in Austin. It was an exciting event that coincided with a barbeque and a ball.
In March, members carpooled and attended the State Legislative Day in Austin. We were treated to breakfast by our local representatives in their offices in the state capitol.
In February and April, several members attended state federation conferences in Houston and Austin.
In April, a wine and dessert membership event was held at a club member's home. More than 50 people attended the event, which featured Congressman Ted Poe and local dignitaries. It was a huge success, and the club now has more than 100 members.
Monthly luncheons are well-attended thanks to great guest speakers, and members actively engage with the club through their choice of media -- website, quarterly newsletter, Twitter and Facebook.
KARW also actively supports the county GOP and local charities in numerous events.
