The Ohio Federation of Republican Women has announced the addition of the Portage County Republican Women's Club to its member club list.

"We are proud and excited to be part of the OFRW," said club president Jeneen Kubala. "Our members will strive to accomplish the club's objectives through participation, volunteerism and outreach at community events while working to grow our club membership."

The OFRW recommended the PCRWC for chartering and the National Federation of Republican Women approved a federation charter for the club. The charter was officially issued by the NFRW on March 27, 2017.

Members of the PCRWC work together to promote the election of Republican candidates, educate the public on legislative issues, foster loyalty to the principles of the Republican Party, support the agenda of the Portage County Republican Party, promote an informed public through political education and activity, pursue a Republican majority status in Portage County and facilitate opportunities to make social, political and business friends.

"We are thrilled to add the Portage County Republican Women's Club to our Federation," OFRW President Lyn Bliss stated. "We currently have 57 clubs across Ohio. The mission of the OFRW is to inform, engage and advocate for the principles set forth by the Republican Party. I am sure this club will provide positive action in accomplishing that mission."

At the OFRW's recent spring conference held in South Euclid, the PCRWC was presented its official charter by NFRW District 8 Director Ann Schockett and OFRW President Lyn Bliss.

The OFRW, founded in 1929, is a statewide organization of hundreds of members in constituent clubs. It is the largest, most powerful political organization in Ohio providing the avenue for women to influence policy, develop candidates, and elect the leaders of Ohio.

The OFRW is a multi-generational, multi-cultural organization providing the structure and support for political activists to learn, engage, and flourish. It is federated under the National Federation of Republican Women. For more information regarding the OFRW, visit
