All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
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!
The year 2016 is turning into a fascinating one for those who are interested in Politics and Government. We seem to be experiencing many “firsts” which makes this campaign season all the more important. While most of us here are not able to influence much nationally, we can make a difference locally.
Below, you'll find an invitation to Meet and Greet all of the wonderful State and County Candidates who represent our members. I know you, like me, are passionate about turning Illinois back into the Land of Opportunity that it was for well over a century. We are providing you with an avenue to channel your energy into a campaign or two with the goal of a viable and vibrant Illinois and Lake County.
This year is a special year for our club, as it is our 75th birthday! We will be highlighting this milestone when we march in the Lake Bluff Parade on July 4th and the Lake Forest Day Parade on August 3rd. A “get out the troops” event is planned for the fall with details to come late summer. On December 3rd, a Big Birthday Bash luncheon will be at Exmoor Country Club, so please mark your calendar.
It is an honor and pleasure to serve as President of the Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.

New Slate of Officers Elected at Annual Meeting!
On January 9, 2016, WRC members elected a new slate of officers. Read about them here. Outgoing President Jennifer Neubauer thanked her officers and board for their constant support and dedication over the past two years. She also recognized former WRC Presidents and thanked them for their contribution and past leadership, noting that she had felt like a "midget standing on the shoulders of giants" while at the helm of the now 75-year old WRC. Following the brief members' meeting, speaker Michael J. Lotus offered fascinating insight on his and James C. Bennett's book: America 3.0, Rebooting American Prosperity in the 21st Century—Why America’s Greatest Days Are Yet to Come (Encounter Books, 2013). Read about the event here.
