A message from our President

To all current and prospective Republican Club of Lakeland members,

Welcome to 2017 and our new and improved website! NOW is the perfect time to start or renew your annual membership in the Republican Club of Lakeland for the new year! Current members, if you have not already done so, please renew your membership before the end of January in order to maintain your active status.
You asked for it, so here it is...we now offer an online payment option that will allow you to purchase and pay for memberships, monthly meeting meal vouchers, special event tickets and/or one-time donations to the club. As in the past, we have and will continue to offer three different membership levels: Bull Elephant ($100); Trumpeter ($50); and, Patriot ($25). The Bull Elephant and Trumpeter levels add the benefit of including your spouse or significant other as a member at the same level.
New for this year, we are now offering student-level memberships to encourage local high school and college students to join our organization. Registered Republican students can join at this level for $5 per year, and maintain that status through their graduation. If you wish, you may sponsor a student's membership in the club.
To start or renew your membership, or to sponsor a student using our secure online payment system, please visit our Membership page. You may also download and print out a copy of our updated membership application form here and mail it in or bring it to one of our monthly meetings. If you have any questions, concerns or need help with your application, please call me at (863) 284-3123 or email me at kathryn.koch@lanierupshaw.com.

With the election of Donald Trump as our new president and a resurgence of Republican politics at all levels of government, you can be sure that 2017 will be an exciting year for our club! We are already looking ahead toward the 2018 elections, when we will have pivotal races for Florida's next Governor, a U.S. Senator and a host of other important offices in need of strong Republican leadership. Your involvement is vital to the future of Lakeland, the State of Florida, and to our country.

I encourage all of you to invite your Republican friends to join us for our monthly luncheon meetings on the first Wednesday of each month (except December), from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. As you may know, we recently relocated our meeting site to the Grasslands Clubhouse, 1600 Grasslands Blvd.,  at the Grasslands Golf & Country Club in southwest Lakeland. At our next meeting on January 4th, 2017, Mr. Gene Conrad, Director of Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, will be speaking to us about infrastructure and economic development at the airport. We will also be inducting a new slate of officers for 2017.

As I leave office and hand the reigns over to our club's new President, John Hugh Shannon, I want to thank each and every one of you for the hard work and sacrifices made to insure our recent slew of Republican victories, and for allowing me the opportunity to serve you. I wish you and your families the happiest of new years under the leadership of our new REPUBLICAN president, Donald J. Trump!
