It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Fernley Republican Women (FRW) website. Although we are a women’s organization, men are invited to join as associate members. The FRW was founded in 2005 and received its charter from the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) on January 1, 2006.
During non-election years, the FRW presents educational speakers and leadership events. When the Nevada Legislature is in session, we focus on legislative issues. Our meetings are always open to the public and are held at the Fernley High School Library, 1300 Highway 95A in Fernley. At 6:00 p.m., we gather for a bite to eat and a little community chit-chat. Our program for the evening starts at 6:30 p.m. promptly.
The FRW is committed to electing strong Republicans to every level of public office. If you believe in personal responsibility, private sector enterprise, free speech, limited government and all the other principles upon which America was founded, we hope you will join our organization’s effort to preserve these fundamental political values.
Our Caring for America/Adopt-a-Soldier program collects non-perishable foods for the Fernley Food Bank along with donations of funds and care-items for our adopted soldiers. Our soldiers need single serving food items, personal care-items and, most especially, cards and letters from home.
Our Literacy Committee collects children's books for the Ronald McDonald House and Renown Hospital's Children's Ward.
All contributions for any of our important programs will be greatly appreciated. Financial contributions can be sent to the FRW at P.O. Box 412, Fernley, Nevada 89408.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Megan earned her Associate of Arts degree from Western Nevada College on May 20, 2019, even before she earned her Fernley High School diploma on June 14, 2019. She believes in community service and has participated in the Fernley Christmas 4 Kids breakfast at the Fernley Fire Station since she was six year’s old. She has participated in many other community projects and school activities.
Susan Knodell, the Fernley Republican Women’s Scholarship Co-Chair, stated, “We congratulate Megan Miller on her many accomplishments and gladly award her our $1,000 scholarship.”
