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 4th, 2017 we  hosted our biennial Honour the Veterans and Military Dinner and fundraiser.  

In 2019, BFRW will host a Military/Veterans benefit event; watch for information in the coming months. 
Other programs in 2017 featured updates on local legislation, commercial activity in space and county and state legislation.

We support Honor Flight, the Veterans Recovery Center, Patriot House and Volunteers of America.
Over 3,500 dictionaries were distributed to 3rd grade students through schools in Brevard County the past few years.  
Special features of our club are  the First Responder Prayer Chain program which focuses on the concerns of our members; the  BFRW Professional Women  monthly evening meeting of networking and our Scholarship program. 
We welcome your membership and participation and if you want to talk or need additional information, please contact President Beth Young, 321-223-5921 or by email at
