Fernley Republican Women is a group of women (and men as associate members) who share similar conservative values and ideals, and who are dedicated to increasing the influence and effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through political education and active political participation.
CELEBRATING OUR 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN 2015!
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 2015, a non-election year, the FRW will present educational speakers and focus on leadership development. To link to our leadership page, click on the Leadership button below. We will also allow all elected officials a chance to speak about the goings on in their role. 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 promptly at 6:30 p.m
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.
This website is paid for by the Fernley Republican Women and not by any candidate or candidate's campaign committee.
C-Tax - At our meeting on March 17th, we voted to support the effort of Ex-Mayor LeRoy Goodman and current Mayor Roy Edgington to get a fair and equitable distribution of the Consolidate Taxes (C-Tax). The PowerPoint presentation given in Mayor Edgington's State of the City Address is posted on our News page.
Fernley Republican Women is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a female accepted to or currently enrolled in an accredited school of higher education to be used toward education expenses. Click the tab below for more information.
On April 21, 2015, our scheduled speaker is Tim Dyhr, Vice President, Environment & External Relations, Nevada Copper. Mr. Dyhr will bring us up to date on the progress made at the Pumpkin Hollow copper mine since the land’s bill was passed on December 19, 2014. The completion of the land acquisition is set for June 2015. At that time, the Pumpkin Hollow development will be entirely within private lands owned or controlled by Nevada Copper, with all key development and operating permits in hand.
Congratulations to the 2014 Fernley Republican Woman of the Year, Julianne Colombe. Her award was presented at the Lyon County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner on February 7, 2015. More pictures from the event are posted on our FRW Photos page.
On December 13, the FRW participated in the Wreaths Across America program at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley. For the first time, thanks to the FRW, the NvFRW and many others, we had enough wreaths for each grave. To see a drone video of the event, click the Wreaths Across America Button below.
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.
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.
