Republicans from all across the state are gathering for a traditional Sunday afternoon picnic, Feb. 23, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., at Tropical Park. This family-friendly event – complete with a carousel, bounce house, and other fun activities for children – offers an opportunity for casual interaction with politicians and members of the media personalities. Look for the big tent at Tropical Park Shelter 1, 7900 SW 40 St., Miami.
“We’re looking forward to getting together with friends who share our political views in an easy-going and casual setting,” said Maricel Cobitz, president of the North Dade Chapter of Federated Republican Women (FRW). “It will be a pleasure to switch out our business suits for a change for T-shirts and shorts.”
The event will give voters a chance to meet elected officials and Republican candidates face-to-face and learn about their views in advance of the campaign season. Candidates will also have the option to recruit valuable volunteer assistance during the picnic.
FRW of North Dade is a group chartered under the National Federation and Florida Federation of Republican Women. As a 2019 recipient of the coveted National Diamond Award for Excellence, the chapter was also recognized as Florida’s Best Chapter Award for its outstanding performance in recruitment of members and hosting educational events. The club’s leaders also were recently invited to the White House in gratitude of their efforts.
The goal of the FRW of North Dade is to inform the electorate through political education and activities; disseminate information to all members; increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through active participation; facilitate cooperation among Republican organizations; promote Republican principles and candidates in all elections including non-partisan elections; and support the election of Republican Party nominees.
Says Cobitz, “We are pleased to be able to host this event for local people to enjoy spending an afternoon with like-minded citizens and feel proud to be a part of the GOP – which is leading our state and nation.”
