At the August meeting of the West Orange County Republican Women Federated, the members dressed in summer and patriotic attire and gathered to socialize, fundraise, and listen to keynote speaker Barbie George share about her journey of becoming involved in her local community and how she now helps other women make a difference.
Barbie George is the Moms for America California State Liaison. She shared how her journey of making a difference started by contacting her city council in her New York about making improvements in her neighborhood has led to helping others make a difference. After relocating to California, Barbie became involved in educating everyday community members, especially moms on how to effectively communicate at civic meetings and influence change.
Her message included encouragement for the attendees to build relationships with decision makers and how to take simple steps to become a change maker, or as she referred to herself, “a nudge.” “Becoming involved in the process only takes 30 seconds. It’s easy to send an email or make a phone call to your local politician during a commercial break,” says Mrs. George.
The ladies also had an opportunity to win a free meal at their next membership meeting and guess who might win the August 23 Republican candidate debate. There was much excitement within the group as our nation enters the 2024 election season.
The WOCRWF will have a booth at the Cypress Festival on October 7 at Oak Knoll Park where the community will be able to find educational materials and learn more about the club’s activities and gatherings.
The West Orange County RWF’s next meeting is in September. If you would like to meet with like-minded women, contact West Orange County RWF by visiting our website at www.westorangecountyrwf.com.
