There is strength in numbers and together WE Republican Women can build that strength. 
We invite you to join us in our collective strength that keeps our organization strong.
On November 2, 2019, we will host a dinner honoring Veterans and the Military at the Hilton Rialto Hotel.  This will also be a fundraiser event with a live auction with Sheriff Wayne Ivey.  We will be honoring Gold Star parents.  

We financially support Honor Flight, the Veterans Recovery Center, the veterans of the Volunteers of America and National Veterans Homeless Support. 

Our monthly programs feature information on local legislation, commercial space and county and state legislation.  

Over 4,300 special dictionaries have been distributed to 3rd grade students in Brevard over the years.  

Special features of our club are the First Responders Prayer Chain, the Girls Nite Out, a get to know you evening gathering. 

We have two Memorial Scholarships of $1,000 each for local high school students and also have scholarship applications available from the National Federation of Republican Women. 
We welcome your membership and participation and if you want to talk or have a suggestion, please contact President Beth Young, 321-223-5921 or by email at
