A voter registration booth is set up at the Village Shopping Center in Corte Madera on two Saturdays in the spring and fall to register new voters, those who have moved or are changing parties, and to remind Marinites that there are Republican Women in Marin. Consider spending a couple of hours spreading the news about our club and the GOP. The many positive comments, and the few negative ones, are always informative. To be added to the volunteer list, contact email@example.com
MRWF SATELLITE CLUB
Open to all members, Satellite Club is a non-structured evening, usually held in a member’s home. We generally meet the last Friday of the month (dark June, July, August and November, with a holiday gathering in early December), from 6 – 9 p.m. Attendees bring a beverage of choice and food (for 8-10) to share. Mates, dates and friends are welcomed. If you thirst for some conservative discussion and comradery, in a setting where you don’t have to watch what you say, this is the group for you!
Volunteers to host are always needed. If you could host 25-40 people, please contact the chair at Celiashaw46@gmail.com. Meeting locations are announced monthly in the Newsletter and in email reminders.
Celia Shaw, Satellite Club Chair
