    Presidents Message

    Hello RWOP Members,

    The month of May has been busy! Our May 15th luncheon featured ten impressive and uplifting scholarship recipients who helped us with our Pledge of Allegiance, Prayer, and in singing God Bless America. Four of the students presented their plans and aspirations moving forward. What a great start to a fully packed agenda! May 15th is Peace Officer's Memorial Day, we were proud to honor our law enforcement where many attended our luncheon from the different agencies in Yavapai County. We heard a heart wrenching account of an ambush where Stephen Edgar (VIP) was shot in the line of duty. Thanks to God's grace, Mr. Edgar is with us to share his incredible story. These programs do not happen without months of work and follow through. Therefore, I would like to thank Debra McVey and her team, Julie Pettit and Sherrie Hanna for a great and engaging May luncheon.

    April 28th at Las Fuentes, our forum hosted six of the scholarship recipients who were given the opportunity to shine in a panel discussion format. The Scholarship Team put them through their paces and Steve Blair, Councilman and radio

  • host, participated as well as had each student on his radio program. It was an uplifting and heartfelt program.

    If you missed it, you missed a fun event on May 11th! Our Thursday Night on the Town featured a Presidential Trivial Pursuit game created by Pam Jones! Divided up into four teams, we answered some thought provoking and sometimes difficult questions. It was a hoot and a time to just have fun and laugh with friends! I won't tell you which team won as it is not nice to brag!

    May 18-20, thirteen RWOP members attended the Spring AzFRW meeting in Flagstaff. The speakers were fabulous! Karen Fann gave an informative presentation on Senate bills and what they mean to Arizonans. Two authors presented very highly charged subject matter that was riveting and informative. Federation meetings were held, business was done and there was networking and camaraderie shared by all! Thanks to all for their hard work in making this successful meeting possible!

    I will leave you with this last thought as I would be remiss not to mention our incredible President Trump. Against all odds he is making a difference as he begins his efforts to fight terrorism. He met not only with powerful leaders in the world on his first foreign tour but he offered them a plan to save themselves and their people from terrorist that only want to destroy the fabric of the world and their respective countries. He didn't instruct others on how to live, run their countries or how to comply with a culture different than their own. He asked them to unite and fight the enemy we all face. He did it with grace and was presidential and most of all he didn't apologize! American leadership in the world is back!

    God bless us all! Linda Nichols, 2017 President

    Caring for America Caring for America will spotlight Prescott's CCJ - Coalition for Compassion and Justice at our June luncheon. For over 17 years CCJ has been a catalyst for change in our community, giving a "hand up" to those less fortunate with a range of services and programs. This May, CCJopened "The Little Tree House" to help low-income families with children work toward their goals of self-sufficiency. This new facility offers a fun, safe place for children to play and read, while allowing their parents to research work opportunities, take on-line classes or look into social services using on-site computers. Much needed and appreciated are donations of...Diapers - Wipes - Low/no sugar juice boxes - Shelf-stable milk boxes - Gasoline gift cards - New/gently used children's books - School supplies. And of course, cash or your check (made out to "CCJ") is always welcome!

    Thanks in advance for your support! When we are generous to those in need in our community, we can demonstrate that RWOP cares for America.

    Americanism - Pam Jones

    Edward R. Murrow once said: "We are in the same tent as the clowns and the freaks - that's show business." Even though Murrow recognized news as just another form of entertainment, he stayed true to his responsibility to report the facts. As a result, many believe that the golden era of journalism began with Murrow in the 1940's and ended when Walter Cronkite signed off in 1981.

    Back then we had only thirty minutes of plain news. Ther
