Smith County Republican Women
Welcome to the website for the Smith County Republican Women.
We meet on the third Thursday of every month at Traditions restaurant,
6205 S. Broadway, in Tyler, Texas.
Our mission is to promote the conservative platform of the Republican Party.
We have two major fundraisers each year, a silent auction in conjunction with the President's Day Dinner in the spring and a Cookie Auction held in December.
We volunteer many hours at the Smith County Republican Headquarters, as well as work at the East Texas Fair in the Smith County Republican booth. We also sponsor numerous additional community and political programs throughout the year.
The Smith County Republican Women are on the hunt for new Members and Associate Members. Anyone who may be interested in joining our group or may have an interest in local government is invited to our Mix and Mingles. Our first one for 2017 was held Tuesday, March 21st, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at Republic Icehouse in Tyler. It was a great turnout and we welcomed seven new club members. Our next Mix and Mingle will be held soon in another area of Smith County. Please plan to join the members of Smith County Republican Women for great conversation and learn how you can get involved.

From Wendy Osburn, President of Smith County Republican Women, 2017:
I was quite saddened to hear that we lost a dear member this morning. Many of you knew Mollie Herrington very well. Over the last couple of years she has been in poor health, but has remained a faithful member. She has dedicated herself to the Republican Party for many years not only from the County level, but at the State level as well. Even at her weakest time she still found the strength to donate items to the Silent Auction for the SCRW this Tuesday. She was such an amazing lady. I have been able to hear so many wonderful stories of all the great things she has been able to accomplish in her life and how she was such a big impact on the Republican Women everywhere. Just speaking to several ladies today alone, I can deeply feel how much positive influence she had on them. I know it is very difficult to overcome a loss of someone like this, but she would want us to know that she is now no longer in pain. Mollie was struggling over a year, and this morning she finally received the relief she deserves.
Ladies, I ask each and every one of you to embrace the positive memories she leaves with you and build upon them. Let us together celebrate her life and cherish the moments that we had with her. Please keep her family and dear friends in your prayers. She will be greatly missed.
