President’s June Message

Dear Members, In the land of funny meme’s, quips and quotes (and there have been some funny ones), we have a new reality facing us every day. And we have a choice each day on how to face it, how to embrace it, and how to change it. Some days I welcome the solitude, on other days, I am angry.

Do I spend hours looking at my phone, scrolling through Instagram, tweets and Fox News? Or do I get up and dig into that Spring Cleaning chore I finally have time to do? Have I made myself better by learning a new craft (just ordered a calligraphy set) or improve my psyche with the Science of Well Being posted online from Yale University (thank you Sheri Sharpe!). Well I can now finally say, enough of all that!

Let’s get back to work, back to the business of supporting our country, protecting our freedom, restoring the economy and get President Trump re-elected. We will not go back to Obama era agendas to which pundits now openly state is the goal to “fundamentally change America.” Our Republican politicians need our support. They need to know we haven’t gone into a hole to hide, and that we are aware there is work being done amidst the Covid-19 pandemic media blitz, that we will support their re-election campaigns by making calls, and train on Trump Talk and Sidekick. We have Zoom training dates posted for you in this newsletter. Read on and signup. Many members have sent emails asking what is going on, which candidates should we support and what news can we believe.

To that end, we are launching a bimonthly publication entitled Pen, Paper & Politics. This will be an email filled with “News You Can Use,” political events, activities and updates you can access online or via Zoom Meetings, Town Halls and webinars. This is political news you can take Action On! Most information will be headlines for you to peruse and follow-up on according to your interest.

However, to receive this email you will need to “opt-in” or signup letting SMRWF know you want to receive the Pen, Paper & Politics edition. We don’t want to assume everyone wants more emails in their in-box. You can also sign up later in this newsletter. As I used to practice this sentence in my high school typing class so long ago: “Now is the time to come to the aid of our country.” Never could that phrase be more poignant than it is now. Our country needs us, needs our voice and our wisdom. Let’s not just practice playing conservative. Let’s put feet to those words, money where our mouths are and get back in the game. We have our work cut out for us. Happy Summer and our return to the great outdoors!


Pat Peterson

President, SMRWF
