RSVP Now, but no later than October 17th - Yes Attending and Yes for Dinner - to:
We meet on the lower level of Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill & Irish Pub, 122 128th Street SE, Everett, WA 98208 (SOD).
ERWC's motto is "Women in the cause of good government". We seek to educate women and men about the Republican Party's values and to encourage and teach Republican Women about running for office.
Meetings are generally conducted from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, with a social hour starting at 6:00 PM and dinner at 6:30 PM (dinner is optional but encouraged, since this is how we pay for the room).
Each meeting begins with an Invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. The President opens the meeting and provides a Welcome message.
Dinner prices have increased due to the price of food, labor, and shipping costs. Those increases have to be covered so our standard dinner fee is now $25 for each meal. If you do not plan to eat, we are suggesting a donation of $5 to help cover expenses. Paying for dinner ($25) or membership ($45) can be accomplished with cash; a check made payable to Evergreen Republican Women’s Club (ERWC); a credit card presented to our Treasurer, Jennifer Skeeters; or by using Zelle in advance or when checking in at the door: to firstname.lastname@example.org. Credit cards will be charged the processing fee. Payments in advance by check can be made out to ERWC and sent to ERWC, P.O. Box 1254, Everett, WA 98206.
Our system for managing dinners is as follows: once you’ve paid for dinner, you will be given a ticket which, after dinner is announced, will be given to the Shawn O’Donnell’s attendant at the bar in exchange for a plate to fill at the buffet.
ERWC provides a headcount and SODs prepares for each meeting based on that headcount. Please be aware that NO SHOWs (i.e. those who RSVP for dinner, but do not cancel by September 19th) are expected to pay. Having the correct numbers for seating and for food preparation is critical. We want to make sure we have enough for all, but we also do not want waste. It’s important to note that this is not an all you can eat buffet. We ask that you only take a reasonable portion and if you are still hungry later after everyone is served and there is still food, you are welcome to go back for seconds.
Please invite your husband, family, and friends to join us for the evening. Shawn O'Donnell's buffet price is $25 per person. Not only are we grateful for the wonderful food each month and great service, but we are also appreciative of the location to hold our meetings. We hope you feel the same!
RSVP by October 17th, to email@example.com, indicating:
YES to attend and YES for dinner
Note: Shawn O'Donnell's is at 122 128th St. SE, Everett, WA 98208
