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
The Fernley Republican Women (FRW) is committed to fostering literacy in the community. Each September, they participate in the National Federation of Republican Women’s Literacy Month by sponsoring literacy projects. On September 17, 2019, Literacy Chair Peggy Gray and FRW President Lorrie Olson presented a dictionary to each 3rd grade student at Cottonwood Elementary School. Accompanied by Principal Cory Sandberg they talked about literacy in all six classrooms. The faces of the children lit up as each received a personal copy of “The Best Dictionary for Students.”
The FRW members also presented three books to the school librarian for the Cottonwood Elementary School library. The books were What's Right by Patty Presnell Kinkead, Cannon the Brown Bear by Kyle McGrath and One Flag, One America by Michelle Hirstius
A few days later, we donated new children’s’ books to Renown Hospital's Children's Ward. These books will help to educate the children and provide a distraction from their treatment.
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.

National Federation of Republican Women
Recognizes Fernley Republican Women for Achievement
Award Bestowed During Biennial Convention
INDIANAPOLIS – Fernley Republican Women won the national Diamond Award for Achievement during the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) 40th Biennial Convention held Sept. 27-29 in Indianapolis. More than 400 awards were given to clubs which demonstrated excellence in several key areas.
FRW President Lorrie Olson said, “I am thrilled to have received this award on behalf of the Fernley Republican Women. Each club member and associate member worked extremely hard during the last two years. I am very proud of each and every one of them.”
FRW member and Achievement Awards Chair of the Nevada Federation of Republican Women (NvFRW) continued by saying, “I could not be more delighted with the Nevada Republican Women. We have 17 clubs in Nevada and 13 of them won awards. The clubs that won a Diamond Award were Active Republican Women of Las Vegas, Carson City Republican Women, Douglas County Republican Women, Fernley Republican Women, Incline Village/Crystal Bay Republican Women, Mt. Rose Republican Women, Republican Women of Reno, Sierra Nevada Republican Women, Southern Hills Republican Women, Sparks Republican Women, Spring Mountain Republican Women and Washoe Republican Women. Winning a Bronze award was Mesquite Republican Women. Great job Republican women of Nevada.”
The NFRW Achievement Awards program is designed to enhance teamwork among members of each club, said NFRW Achievement Awards Chair Linda Smith of Kansas. 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 one-third of our clubs, representing 40 states, earned an NFRW Achievement Award this biennium,” Smith 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 to honor their efforts.”
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women's group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government. Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public, and inform the media.
