2015 New Meeting Venue and New Meeting Day
Beginning in January 2015
the Lee Republican Women's
Club will be meeting at a new place and on a new day.
We are moving to:
FIRST TUESDAY OF MONTH
GOD BLESS AMERICA! MAY WE NEVER FORGET.
The month of May brings several special celebrations, which include Mother’s Day, Armed Forces Day, National Maritime Day and Memorial Day.
Another event in May is the National Day of Prayer, which will be observed on May 7th this year.
President George Washington declared the first National Day of Prayer after the Whiskey Rebellion. Other Presidents have designated a day of prayer for other significant events, among them during the War of 1812, a cholera epidemic, to avert civil strife, and when President Lincoln was shot.
In 1952, President Truman made the National Day of Prayer an annual event, stating, “In times of national crisis when we are striving to strengthen the foundations of peace…we stand in special need of Divine support.”
In 1988, President Reagan declared that the National Day of Prayer would be observed on the first Thursday
in May, stating, “Americans in every generation have
turned to their Maker in prayer…we have
acknowledged both our dependence on Almighty God and the help He offers us as individuals and as a nation.”
“American Minute”—William J. Federer
On May 7th, let us remember the significance of the National Day of Prayer and pray for our country.
In your service,
FROM OUR PRESIDENT JOYCE EASTON
