GFRW RED COAT DAY AT THE CAPITOL
The women of the GFRW visited the State Capitol on March 20, 2015. GFRW's own Anne Mueller
was recognized and introduced in the well, receiving tremendous applause for her past work in the Legislature. The ladies from GFRW in the gallery were also acknowledged and received a standing ovation. Some ladies got a brief tour of the Governor's Office while others made a visit to the Secretary of State's Office later in the day before heading to the Agriculture Building for a boxed lunch. During lunch we were treated to several informational speeches from Legislators and Lobbyists. A new Photo Galleries

Saturday's Luncheon speaker was Tim Echols, Public Service Commissioner. Tim is also the founder of TeenPact. TeenPact is a dynamic, hands-on leadership school for Christian students. Their mission is to train youth to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend their Christian faith and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things. Of course, Tim also spoke about the new rules and regulations being placed on the the Public Service Commission by the government.
