Congratulations to the 2019-2020 WFRW Officers
WFRW clubs and members work hard to recruit and support candidates for office.
Washington State's Secretary of State, Kim Wyman, is one of our favorite success stories.
A past officer of the Thurston County Republican Women's Club as well as the County Party organization, she is an inspiration to all who meet her.
Former Oklahoma Congressman Steve Largent is also one of the most popular former Seattle Seahawks. He is shown here with the late Fredi Simpson, then Washington State's National Committeewoman; Past WFRW President Eileen Sobjack, the former NFRW Secretary and current NFRW 2nd Vice President; and WFRW President Dee Drewry, Chair of the NFRW's Technology Committee.
When Sharon Day, former Co-Chairman of the Republican National Committee and current U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica, flew to Washington to visit her friend, the late Fredi Simpson, several WFRW members gathered for lunch with her.
As expected, she shared several entertaining anecdotes and reminded us that we are stronger and more effective when we work together.
