President Greeting:

Welcome to the Rural Women's Republican Club (RWRC) Web Page!! It is my very special honor and privilege to serve as President of RWRC for the 2014/2015 term. Come join us!! Our rural community is located in the western part of Montgomery County; we pride ourselves in the beauty of our countryside, with the many farms and beautiful view of Sugarloaf Mountain, the focal point of our area.

Our club meets the third Monday of the month at members’ homes, with the exception of January, July, August and December. Our women are hard working and very passionate about their beliefs and values. We are being proactive in our quest for new faces to come join us and help us in our endeavors to elect Republicans and spread the benefits of conservatism. Not only are we passionate about our politics, we are also active in state and community organizations with monetary donations and volunteer our time.

Most important to our volunteerism is our support of our military. One lesson that this past election taught us is that too many people in this country do not understand what makes America so unique in history and so exceptional in the present time. America is EXCEPTIONAL in history and in the age in which we now live. We will pray for God's guidance and His help for our mission. We are a force which is to be recognized and respected when we work together, but we know that God is still in charge. Now we pray for the strength and grace to guide us in the 2014 and 2016 elections.

Hi Liz,

I was so happy to get the latest State Membership Report for 2017. I just wanted to thank you and say congratulations! Maryland FRW is already past 100% of last years numbers and you continue to bring in more members. Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your Maryland clubs are doing.

Increasing our total membership numbers is so important to building an even stronger NFRW. The more members we can recruit and retain helps us ensure that we will have even more NFRW members out in our communities to help educate the votes, get our message out and elect more of our Republic candidates.

Right now our total NFRW membership numbers are at 91% of 2016 numbers and we still have time to recruit more members. With the great work you are doing I know NFRW can end 2017 with 100% or more of total membership. Please let our NFRW Membership Committee know if we can help you in any way.

Looking forward to to seeing you in Philadelphia in September . It will be a great Convention. Thank you so much for all you do for MFRW, NFRW and AMERICA !

Our Mission

We are Republican women working to shape and mobilize grassroots efforts in Northwestern Montgomery County. These initiatives are essential to influence and maintain the political landscape in our communities.

Our Club

We are a congenial group of rural women who share many conservative goals and a strong desire to work to preserve them. We know our collective voices will be heard above any of us individually. Our goal is to support local, state, and national Republican candidates for public offices and donate to organizations in our community. Among our activities, we donate to WUMCO Help; Hands of Love Mission; Circle of Hope Therapeutic Riding; a $1,000 scholarship to a high school senior in the upper part of the county from one of the following schools: Poolesville, Clarksburg, Damascus and Seneca Valley; UMCVFD and local libraries. We hold one fundraiser each year (Saturday Night in the Country), which has become a popular community event. Our fundraiser is held at the Isaac Walton League Chapter House, a beautiful lodge overlooking all the beauty of our rural area. The lodge is located on West Willard Road in Poolesville.

Our History

The Rural Women's Republican Club (RWRC) was founded on June 5, 1962, in the shadow of Sugarloaf Mountain. It was a small group of determined women, some of whom are still very active today. Our membership is 41 full and Associate Members. In addition to our political values, we share a love of our rural area and the country lifestyle. Through the years, RWRC has continued to attract determined, conservative, and lively women who are deeply committed to their families, their rural atmosphere, and their Country. We meet monthly in various homes and enjoy the commonality we share as Republicans and a good food.
