The Ohio Federation of Republican Women awarded the Canfield Republican Women’s Club with the Diamond Achievement Award at their Spring Conference on May 21, 2016.
The CRWC earned the top award from the State by participating in fundraisers that allowed them to contribute funds to Republican candidates in addition to the community.
The CRWC held a glove and hat drive for Salvation Army, a book drive for Goodwill, a food drive for Canfield Operation Blessing, donated to AMVETS, American Legion, Blue Star Mothers, YSU Veteran’s Center and recently began a YSU ROTC Scholarship for a female cadet.
Attending the Conference from the CRWC were Holly Deibel and Sharon Henry.
Guest speakers included Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted who spoke about his experience as Secretary of State in the context of important and decisive elections.
Chris McNulty, Chair of the Republican National Committee’s Committee on Convention Arrangements, gave the group insights into the planning and his role in preparation for the upcoming 2016 Republican National Committee’s Convention to be held in Cleveland.
Mrs. Jane Portman presented an update on Senator Rob Portman’s campaign and the status of the 2016 election. She spoke about the volunteer opportunities that exist and the super Saturday activities occurring.
Through its “Caring for America” program, the OFRW donated $900 to Operation Buckeye, a non-profit veteran’s service organization.
