President's NEWS

Dear WRC Naples Federated Sisters, Members and Friends,

We celebrate our country’s birthday on the fourth of July out of patriotism and gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy. The first patriots were intelligent, dedicated, educated and articulate. These freedom fighters gifted us with the foundation of self governance through their steadfast fight and the documents they left us. Their words inspired a ragtag army of citizen volunteers, who defeated the largest and best equipped military in the world at that time.

How do we defeat our current enemies to secure the RED WAVE and our future?
How do we educate and inspire future patriots and freedom fighters?
How do we elect hardworking and inspiring leaders?
How can you do you part as a patriot and freedom fighter?

Help build a network of citizen volunteers to make every vote count. Volunteer as a poll watcher. Every county needs leadership, permanent voter integrity infrastructure, eyes and ears on every vote. To help you must be credentialed by July 20.
· Work for candidates, knock on doors, make phone calls.
· Elect the right school board to educate the next generation of patriots. Vote in the primary.
· Elect the “right” Republicans at every level of government. Vote in the primary.

Republican Primaries average 30% or lower voter turnout rate. If you want the Republican Party in Florida to look like the party of Ron DeSantis - you have to show up for the Primary… and bring friends. You will have to do what you can to GET OUT THE VOTE. This is the last and only chance Republican voters have to vote out weak and usher in strong conservative Republicans for some real representation.

To all Patriots and Freedom Fighters, Have a Happy Fourth of July!
Kathi Lewis, President

UPCOMING PRIMARY ELECTION

Update 08/05/2022:

EARLY VOTING - COLLIER & LEE
BEGINS August 13, 10:00am-6pm and ENDS August 20
you may vote at any polling locations in your county
for a list of polling locations CollierVotes.com and LeeVote.com

VOTE BY MAIL
drop off your ballot at a county polling location in the Secure Ballot Intake Station Box
deadline to request a Vote by Mail Ballot is August 13, 2022 by 5:00pm

WHO TO VOTE FOR - HOW TO DECIDE

  • ISSUE PLATFORM - what is each candidate promising to accomplish? Are their priorities your priorities?
  • RESIDENCY - does the candidate understand the history, trials, failures and successes of what's been tried in the district they wish to represent?
  • EXPERIENCE IN THE COMMUNITY - has their past experience prepared them to deliver what they say for the community? If an incumbent, have they delivered what the citizens requested?
  • PAST PERFORMANCE - do you agree with the way the incumbent voted in the past? What is the candidates past work experience and education?
  • SOCIAL MEDIA AND WEBSITES - explore what these have to say about the candidate. Is there a need to shake things up completely or just a missing link that needs to be added?

JULY 25th WAS THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN THE PRIMARY

FOUR QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR FRIENDS

  1. Are you voting in the primary on August 23?
  2. Did you know Florida is a closed primary state? Your ballot is tailor made for you based on your party affiliation.
  3. (If no party affiliation) Did you know you can still declare a party for the primary?
  4. (If no party affiliation) Did you know you can still vote for judges, school board and any candidates who have no opposition?
Almost 25% of our county is not affiliated with a party. Many Republican candidates are unopposed by another party which means NPA’s can still vote for those Candidates.
If you live in a gated community, you can help our Republican candidates by stepping up the conversation with your friends about voter participation before the primary on August 23. LETS GET OUT THE VOTE.

LITERACY & EDUCATION NEWS

PATRIOT READERS UPDATE

Our Latest Newsletter
Hello Ladies,
 
Recently, The WRC Naples Federated Literacy and Education Committee Proposal was sent to The CCPS Literacy Coordinators, Colleen Fletcher, Lidia Camp, and Miki Strohl, to establish our Patriot Readers Project. The proposal passed with flying colors through their departments and on to The CCPS Executive Branch and is now in the hands of The CCPS legal department. 
 
While in the hands of the coordinators, two books that were chosen and purchased by our members, were authorized and found to be in accordance with The New Civics Curriculum CLEI- Civic Literacy and Excellence Initiative-for K-1 grades.
 
Listed below you will find the two books and their authors. Donations of these books are needed.
 
1) American Symbols - What You Need to Know, by Melissa Ann Ferguson. 
2) Our Pledge, Our Promise: The Pledge of Allegiance Explained, by Sheri Wall.
 
Colleen Fisher who has been officiating and leading the way through the CCPS Establishment believes The Patriot Readers could read to as many as 70 classes during the 2023/2024 school year, meeting and jumping out in front of Governor Desantis’s deadline for the Civic Initiative. 
 
For those of you interested in seeing this project take off in September 2022, we have added the link to our proposal for you to view. Perhaps, it will help you understand our goals and plans for what we hope to be a lifelong promotion of Americanism through our WRC Naples Federated Literacy and Education Committee. 
 
 
After reading the proposal if you feel led to donate one or more of the two authorized books, please bring to our next luncheon or respond to wrclitnedcommittee@gmail.com
 
Thank you for your constant support.

Thank you,
Lytra Wilson, Chair
Jeanne Rock, Vice Chair

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE NEWS

FAITH ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE

Update 08/09/2022:
A few words from Marilyn Romeo, member of the Faith Engagement Committee . . .

“ . . . And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

These words from the book of Esther are speaking loudly to me these days. The sentiment is apropos for my generation: those of us treading the years of 70, 80 and beyond. Our present crisis is actually asking us to become warriors of truth. This crisis has offered an opportunity for people of faith to unite.

We have lived the best of both worlds: the moral values and honest hard work ethics that our parents and grandparents brought to America from Europe, and the opportunity to become all that we were capable of being.

We have a story to tell about the gift that our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us. The true story that made America Strong.

We have a battle to fight along with our Governor Ron DeSantis who recently stated our need to put on the full armor of God in an effort to keep the state of Florida free. That armor is Truth which people of faith possess. Hope is the virtue that will lighten our way and give us strength.

Moms, Dads, and Grandparents Strong are renaming the concept of woke to “Awake”! The Lion of Truth has been awakened to the falsehoods that have indoctrinated our kids starting from elementary school to college. We intend to stand firm and confront media, cancel culture, and political leaders, elected and expected to serve the common good.

“WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”

A few words from our Immediate Past President and Chair of the Faith Engagement Committee, Donna Wagner ...

A few words from our Immediate Past President and Chair of the Faith Engagement Committee, Donna Wagner ...
 
On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision ended 50 years of federal abortion rights. Roe, since 1973, had permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy. It now goes to the states. Let us continue to ask God to support all of our leaders for wisdom, understanding, and a renewed softened heart for all created life. There are now great decisions that have to be made. We love our families, our neighbors, our nation and every child, born or unborn. “Every life is sacred and every child is a precious gift from God.”
 
Thank you President Donald J. Trump for appointing conservative constitutionalist Judges to this highest Court in our land.
 
The National Federation of Republican Women has a Faith Coalition committee whose motto is “Faith That Moves Mountains” derived from Mark 11:23: “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Meaning prayer and intercession before a holy and grace-giving Lord can move mountains. We are seeing this today.
 
Let us continue in faith and prayer. There is already strong reaction to this decision—the dark against the light. We fight not against flesh and blood but in the spiritual realm (Ephesians 6:12). Let us pray for protection for all of the Pregnancy Centers and Resource Centers and for all of those who care and are involved in the safety of babies and of all of our churches as well.
