All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Eighty guests joined us December 3rd for our 75th Anniversary Bash, featuring guest speaker Congressman Peter Roskam and President's Award recipient, Pat Kammerer.
“Pat” Kammerer, past President of the Women’s Republican Club (2006-2008) has been a GOP stalwart for decades. Not only did Pat raise seven children with her late husband, John, a successful business executive who saw service in the U.S. Army under General Douglas MacArthur in Japan, she has consistently and continuously worked “in the trenches” for the GOP. Pat has served as precinct committeeman and captain. She heeded the call to be a poll watcher for Gov. Scott Walker in a hotly contested recall election in Wisconsin, leaving her station only when her safety was threatened and local police informed her they could not guarantee her personal safety. Pat has offered constant inspiration and bonhomie and has always been available to lend her support, advice, encouragement and love to WRC officers. She is the embodiment of the GOP woman: a lover of faith, family, country and hard work, all accomplished with beauty, grace and style.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, PAT! GOD BLESS YOU!
Happy 75th Anniversary, Women's Republican Club!
The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area. The WRC exists to assist local, state and national Republican candidates win elective office; to assist elected Republican officeholders with constituent interface and to educate all voters on issues important to the maintenance of our Constitutional republic and the social and economic vitality of Illinois and our local communities.
Consistent with the written Illinois and National GOP platforms, the WRC supports reverence for the United States Constitution and the rule of law, and the traditional, American values protecting human life, personal liberty and responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness in any lawful sphere of endeavor.
The WRC does not support the increasingly intrusive and dehumanizing interference of either state or federal governments that deny life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness including but not limited to: job-killing oppressive taxation and regulation, wasteful government spending, the cynical creation and maintenance of a permanent, government-dependent underclass, corporate cronyism, the governmental monopoly on education, denial of school choice, the redefinition of marriage and the trampling of religious liberty.
We understand that good Republicans—both voters and candidates and to sometimes widely varying degrees—do not necessarily agree with everything in the platform. We agree with Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend, not a 20% traitor. If you agree with 80% of the GOP platform, you’re a friend. What’s more, you’re a Republican! So join us!
