BRISTOL TENNESSEE REPUBLICAN WOMEN'S CLUB
For 2014, Bristol Tennessee Republican Women's Club (BTRWC) had 65 members and 41 associates.
The club hosted the following speakers: Congressman Roe; Lt. Gov. Ramsey; state Reps. Lundberg, Hill and Shipley; Sullivan County Mayor Steve Godsey; TnFRW President Linda D. Buckles; and, Bristol Mayor Lea Powers and Vice-Mayor Chad Keen. In addition, more than 30 Republican candidates addressed the club.
BTRWC's Caring for America project each year is a donation to the Bristol Faith in Action organization. This organization provides help to those in the Bristol area who need assistance with utility payments, food and household items. BTRWC also supports Cellphones for Soldiers, which collects used cellphones and donates them to an organization that forwards calling cards to U.S. military overseas.
Annually, we support the NFRW scholarship and foundation funds, and the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project with donations of books to local schools or libraries. Our legislative activism for 2014 included managing a Republican campaign headquarters to support the distribution of campaign items for federal, state and local Republican candidates, inviting voter registration and educating voters on the four constitutional amendments on Tennessee's ballot in November.
BTRWC produces a monthly newsletter and utilizes Facebook. In addition to club news, members are provided with information from the NFRW and the TnFRW.
BTRWC boasts four members who currently hold elected office, one of which is a county-wide office.
