The Sixth Annual Membership Tea of the Republican Women of Clifton (RWC), held at the home of First Vice President Alice Butler-Short on March 24, was a huge success. Over sixty members and potential members attended the tea. It was a grand sit-down affair, and ten guests signed up to become members of the club. RWC membership is open to both residents and non-residents of Clifton.

The keynote speaker was Star Parker, who is one of the names on the short list mentioned when anyone speaks of national Black conservative leaders. She is frequently seen on Fox News on the Hannity and O’Reilly shows. Her talk was informative, inspirational and entertaining.

The club President, Marianne Gearhart, welcomed VIP guests: former First Lady of Virginia Susan Allen; Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; and Martha Ann Alito, wife of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito. Also recognized by Marianne were three former Presidents of the club, Elizabeth Schultz, recently elected to the Fairfax County School Board, Terri Rollins, and Lynn Falk.
