More than 100 people came to the group’s inaugural meeting at the Eastman Road Food City. A steering committee had been established to form a club open to both men and women interested in promoting Republican values. A club goal is for members to unite and work together under a common goal where comments and suggestions would always be welcome, according to the meeting’s minutes.
Club objectives, according to a draft of its bylaws, are to promote an informed public through political education and activity; foster loyalty to the Republican Party at all levels of government; and to support the policies of the Republican National Committee and work for the election of Republican Party nominees.
Frankie Lambert was elected the club’s president.
Annual dues are $25.
The club’s next meeting is scheduled at the Eastman Road Food City on March 2.
