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 Bow Wow Books, a therapy dog program at Fernley Library that has grade school children read books to the pups.
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.
This website is paid for by the Fernley Republican Women and not by any candidate or candidate's campaign committee.
The Fernley Republican Women (FRW) is committed to fostering literacy in the community and promoting Americanism in the schools. Each September, we participate in the National Federation of Republican Women’s Literacy Month by sponsoring literacy projects. On September 16, 2020, Literacy Chair Peggy Gray delivered dictionaries for distribution to each 3rd grade student at Cottonwood Elementary School. She and her committee members were saddened by the inability to actually accompany school staff to talk about literacy in all the classrooms and actually see the faces of the children light up as each receives a personal copy of “The Best Dictionary for Students.”
We also presented books to the Cottonwood Elementary School library. The books donated were One Flag, One America by Michelle Hirstius and Camillla Can Vote by Mary Morgan Ketchel with Senator Marsha Blackburn. Books were also donated to Bow Wow Books, an organization that teamed up with the Fernley library. Bow Wow Reading Dogs are nonjudgmental certified therapy dogs who listen to children reading aloud. The dogs' handlers have been educated on how to help readers learn to read.

National Federation of Republican Women Recognizes Local Club for Achievement
Award Bestowed During Biennial Convention
ORLANDO, Fla. – Fernley Republican Women (FRW) won the national Diamond Award for Achievement during the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) 41st Biennial Convention held September 24-26 in Orlando. More than 500 awards were given to clubs demonstrating excellence in several key areas.
Anita Trone, FRW President, said “I am so proud of the members of the Fernley Republican Women for winning another Diamond Award. There are 17 clubs in Nevada, and all 17 won an Achievement Award – fifteen Diamonds, one Silver and one Bronze. That success led to the Nevada Federation of Republican Women winning a Betty Heitman award for State Excellence, which was accepted by our state president, Janet Freixas.”
“The NFRW Achievement Awards program is designed to enhance teamwork among members of each club,” said NFRW Achievement Awards Chair Roxanne Husmann of Washington. “Using the Achievement Awards worksheet as a guide for planning club activities produces a well-balanced club program. It establishes standards of performance for membership development, campaign activities, community relations, leadership development, programs and club functions.
We are very pleased that more than 40 percent of our clubs, representing 39 states, earned an NFRW Achievement Award this biennium,” Husmann said. “It is the culmination of two years of diligent planning and hard work on the part of these club members, and we are proud of their efforts.”
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest grassroots Republican women’s organization in the country. Building leaders, energizing communities and keeping America strong, NFRW empowers women from all backgrounds in the political process and provides a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government and civic arenas.
