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.
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.
This website is paid for by the Fernley Republican Women and not by any candidate or candidate's campaign committee.
The scholarship committee received four applications this year for the Fernley Republican Women’s $1,000 scholarship. Grace DeLeon was the recipient of the scholarship. She was the valedictorian of her class and was either the class president or vice-president all four years. She earned 12 varsity letters and was awarded the NIAA Top Ten Student Athlete this past March. She has been a member of the National Honor Society for 3 years and also the Vice President of that society her senior year. She earned her associates degree from Western Nevada College a week before she graduated from high school. On top of all this, she had perfect attendance all four years of high school.
Grace will be attending St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California, and plans to pursue a degree in Business Administration. After that, she plans to earn her Master’s in Business Administration or enroll in law school. Whatever she decides to do, I’m sure she will be successful. Congratulations Grace!
Our newest adopted soldier is Army Specialist Heather Donohue, granddaughter of Fernley Republican Women’s Second Vice President Nancy Donohue. Heather grew up in Fernley and graduated from Fernley High School in 2014. At age 19, she enlisted in the military “to do something bigger and receive more discipline.”While she is deployed, she plans to further her education by pursuing correspondence college courses.
Heather is very appreciative that she was adopted by the FRW. We are proud to support her, sincerely thank her for her service and urge her to stay strong and safe. If you would like to donate to her packages there is a "Wish List" of items she's requested under the "News" tab.
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.
