OKC Republican Women's Club donates books to school
The Oklahoma City Republican Women's Club (OKC RW Club) participated in the annual Literacy Project of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) by presenting more than 30 books from the NFRW Mamie Eisenhower Library Project list to the library of John Adams Elementary School of the Oklahoma City Public School District.
In addition, the OKC RW Club Americanism Committee, chaired by Jo Fudge, presented the school with a new flag for the school flag pole and new flags for classrooms. Additionally, the group provided individual copies of the U.S. Constitution to the fifth-grade students.
The individual OKC RW Club members donated enough story books for each fourth-grader to have a book of his/her own to take home. In conjunction with the National Dictionary Project, the OKC RW Club also provided a dictionary to each fourth-grade student.
OKC RW Club Literacy & Education Committee Chairman Cathy Meyer arranged to have the Thunder Bookmobile which also gave the students a book of their own selection.
OKC RW Club President Evelyn McCoy said: "We are so proud to provide new books for the John Adams School library and to be the catalyst to get each of these students to have books of their own. The children were excited to be on the Thunder Bookmobile and select a book."
The OKC RW Club is the largest Republican Women's Club in Oklahoma and the oldest, founded in 1920. Membership is open to any woman who is a registered Republican. The Club meets on the first Monday of each month.
Registration forms for 2013 members can be downloaded from the club website www.okcrwc.org. For more information, please call President Evelyn McCoy, 721-7332, firstname.lastname@example.org.
