CCWRC Members, Friends, National Security Experts, all Celebrate Republican Election Results at Club's Annual Meeting
Amid the glamour of a beautiful ballroom and the surrounding ambiance prevalent among
100 members and guests, Chevy Chase Women's Club hosted their Annual Meeting
with the installation of the 2017-18 Executive Board followed by a stimulating panel
discussion on National Security. Together with former CIA Officer and strategic policy and
intelligence agent, Clare Lopez, as moderator, panel speakers Four Star Admiral James "Ace"
Lyons and General Bob Scales (both Ret.) agreed that we need missile defense worthy of the
name. Emphasizing that the "the biggest threat is in the Middle East - our civilian electric grid is
unprotected", Clare Lopez added that "we are fighting to live free of Islamic law - we face a
global Jihad." Reporting that we cannot have open borders", a panelist said that in the last
week or so since Trump was elected, "we are already much more secure".
Q&A opened a plethora of audience and panel members exciting exchange of ideas and concerns
ending with regret that this dynamic interchange had to end.
As appropriate at an Annual Meeting, the club wanted to honor a most valuable volunteer member,
who was very instrumental in accommodating biannual fundraisers, as well as providing sage
advice gleaned from her vast experience as a Navy wife. An accomplished tennis and golfer player,
she has volunteered at the White House, provided musical accompaniment for many club events
and, as a "treasure to our club", Dolly Rasmussen was awarded a plaque as the "heart" of the
Chevy Chase Women's Republican Club."
