President’s Pen

Dear GCRW Friends –

Happy Spring GCRW members, I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Resurrection Sunday with your families praising Jesus Christ, our all-powerful, risen Lord and Savior. I was reminded that people of every nation and tongue join us daily in worshipping HIM.

We started the month with a fantastic meeting and program with guest speaker, Jonathan Covey, from Texas Values.  His topic was “Winning the Battle to protect women & youth”. This organization is the best example of a group who stands and supports conservative legislation every day of the session.

I’d like to take a moment to highlight our membership and patron drive. If you are an existing member or know of someone who would be interested in a GCRW membership, please visit the updated, GCRW website at, www.gcrw.org. Thank you to our Website Chair, Lisa Jang for her diligence on this effort.  In addition, if you have questions regarding membership, please contact GCRW Membership VP, Jolie Williams who is available at the membership table at all general meetings. We value YOU and your support in 2024. We cannot afford and will not have the Biden administration destroy our Faith, Family & Freedom values. Let’s “work together” to keep Texas Red and elect President Donald J. Trump in November!

A couple reminders, are you one of the outstanding delegates heading to the Texas GOP Convention in San Antonio, May 23-25th ? Then kindly contact Lene DeRudder at laderuddergcrw@gmail.com. She will have some tips for you to make the visit an enjoyable experience at State Convention and be part of GCRW moments, lunches & other fun happenings.

Don’t miss our May meeting! We have a great speaker and will be announcing our Scholarship winner. Special thanks to our Scholarship Chair, Sandy Liu, for coordinating the team to review 15 applications and select our winner.
