The Republican Club of Lakeland (RCL) is an all-volunteer civic organization chartered under the auspices of the Republican Executive Committee (REC) of Polk County. Our goals are threefold: 1) to build camaraderie between Republican supporters; 2) to inform and educate local voters; and, 3) to promote Republican candidates and initiatives at the local, state and federal level. We welcome you to our site and encourage you to browse through the pages herein.

Our organization holds monthly luncheon meetings on the first Wednesday of every month (except July when it falls on the 4th and December) at Cleveland Heights Golf Club on Edgewood Drive. Our meetings generally consist of:

  • an update on current issues of concern at the local, state and federal level;
  • a brief review of the club's activities;
  • an optional buffet-style lunch (tickets for which can soon be purchased here on our site, or at the door); and,
  • a speaker's presentation on local topics of interest.

To reserve a spot at one of our upcoming meetings, please visit our Meetings page. If you would like to start or renew your membership, you may do so by visiting our Membership page, or by downloading and printing out a copy of our membership application form here. To receive our emails, subscribe to our email list.

We appreciate your interest in local Republican politics and look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming meetings. Let's Make America Great Again, shall we?
