Pike County Republican Women
Pike County Republican Women is a vital part of the Troy community.
Our club participated in the Pike County Fair by setting up and manning a booth in a prime spot that is reserved for the club by the fair organizers. The theme of the booth was " The Race is On!" Photos of the presidential candidates were placed in race cars, with the cars numbered with the current rankings in the race. The booth won a Blue Ribbon for non-profits! It was our first Blue Ribbon. This same booth was later displayed in a neighboring community for the Peanut Festival. Volunteers manned the booth with candidates for local office displaying their campaign signs, too.
PCRW just concluded the second Constitution Project in local schools. Fifth grade teachers met to offer ideas for improving the project's effectiveness and to receive their materials. This was a very successful project in 2015. The winning students and their teachers received recognition and cash awards. Through the generosity of a local community bank, photos will be displayed on a local billboard during the months of July and August.
PCRW also awards two $1,000 scholarships annually to exceptional high school grads. One of the 2015 winners was a homeschooled student. This year, three students received scholarships! The monthly Red Elephant Sale generates funds for the scholarship and creates a spirit of friendly competition at meetings.
Club members serve on local boards as well as the county and state Republican committees. We seek to educate, inform, and improve the lives of residents of our city, county, state and nation.
