History of Northwood Republican Women
Lorna Crocker, Founding Member

Founded in 1972 by 32 politically interested women, Northwood Republican Women (NRW) has grown into a vibrant club with members active iin all all aspects of the community and politics. Affiliated with the National Federation of the Republican Women (NFRW) and Texas Federation of Republican Women (TFRW), we are an award-winning club since our inception.  We have earned the NFRW Diamond level Award of Achievement and the TFRW John Goodwin Tower Award of Excellence. We have earned two star awards for increasing membership and the 2005's first place Caring for America recognizing our support for the "Greet the Troops" project.  NRW is the recipient of many prestigious honors.

NRW continues to reach out to the community by participating in activities such as the TRAC (Transitional Resources Activities Center) for children aging out of the Texas state foster care system, donating books to elementary school libraries and awarding a Texas college scholarship to a deserving Dallas-area woman. Recently, we participated in the child abuse program recognizing the social workers who help these children. Currently, we are participating in the Bravo program recognizing the families of our deployed military.

We support our military by greeting our troops as they arrive and depart from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport; contributing to the new San Antonio Hospital Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund; clipping coupons for overseas military families; and knitting warm helmet liners for our soldiers serving in Iraq all while adding new projects as they come to our attention.

However, NRW's main focus and goal remains the support and election of Republican candidates and the promotion of Republican Party philosophy.
