At our September meeting we had State Representative Kyle Biedermann, pictured far right with his wife Barbi Biedermann, provide an update on the special legislative session which recently adjourned sine die.
NBRW hosted the First Lady of Texas, Cecilia Abbott, as our guest speaker at our annual Potluck Supper in June. Mrs. Abbott spoke to a full house, everyone brought delicious food to share, and a fun evening was had by all. Mrs. Abbott presented one of her projects, "Texanthropy". Mrs. Abbott believes that we are each called to service, and her top priority as First Lady is promoting volunteerism and service to others through her "Texanthropy" initiative. She is working to elevate the importance and significance of volunteerism and service, and also shine a spotlight on entities and individuals all across Texas who are working to make our state a better place through their service to others. With the help of Texans from all corners of the Lone Star State, Mrs. Abbott wants to work together to promote volunteerism and help enrich the lives of all Texans through "Texanthropy."
Everyone loves a parade, and members of New Braunfels Republican Women are no exception. Each year we walk in the 4th of July Parade, paying tribute to those who fought for our nation's independence.
