WELCOME TO THE CHEVY CHASE WOMEN'S REPUBLICAN CLUB

President’s Greeting:

I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve as President of the Chevy Chase Women’s Republican Club and hope we have a productive and satisfying year. As Ronald Reagan once commented, “Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority and don’t interfere.” I certainly have found great people and hope to do as he recommended.

As CCWRC Presidents before me, my goals for the year are to keep increasing the membership, continue our community involvement and promote Republican values. I will work with as many members as possible in the realization of these goals and have a good time in the process.

I look forward to seeing you at the club’s monthly events which are planned to provide a broad and varied agenda of interest to all. I ask our loyal members to continue their support for the success of our organization by participating in our club’s political, charitable and social activities.

Joan Pleiman, President CCWRC



CCWRC host an original Just Desserts event highlighted by admired well known speakers

An exuberant atmosphere among the 75 attendees at this early evening event, evident by the many rounds of applause and depth of the Q&A session, resulted in an evening long to remember for members and guests. Expressing their deep appreciation to the speakers on behalf of the club, CCWRC President, Joan Pleiman and chairman of this event, 2nd VP Nancy Griffin, remarked that "We thank Roger Arnoff, Editor at "Accuracy in Media" and Four Star Admiral James Ace Lyman, for their significant contributions to the community for expressing their objections,both verbally and in writing,against lies,and for reporting events as they occur," a caveat for media to keep citizens informed of true facts.

The Washington Post quotes CCWRC Member Nancy Griffin at Governor Hogan's Enthusiastic Inauguration

"While campaigning for him in Montgomery County, she [Nancy] heard over and over from voters who were tired of partisan bickering, tired of taxes and tired of a government that they believed had fallen out of touch. The Country and its people have to be first," said Griffin of Potomac. "The rest will fall in place".
