Republican Christmas Party 2019 held at Hibiscus On The Bay. Good fellowship and Great Food! Representing members of the Bay County REC, the Bay County Republican Round Table, and the Bay County Federated Women’s Club. Great evening!

The Bay County Federated Republican Women’s club held it’s monthly meeting on 11/20/2019 at the Shrimp Boat Restaurant in St. Andrews. Our main objective was to present the proceeds of the Todd Herendeen event to benefit the Children’s Home Society’s “Open Doors” program which is combating “human trafficking”. This event was a Hugh success and we were able to hand them a check for $5689.00 to aid in this program. Melinda Glover and Stephanie Gravely of CHS spoke on the merits of the program and appeared very pleased with the results. Debbie Wood (chairman of the Bay County Republican Party) spoke of upcoming club meetings and events including our collective (REC, Women’s Club, and the Round Table Club) Christmas party, to be held at Hibiscus By The Bay Meeting center December 3rd.

Good turnout and everyone had a great time!

The Bay County Federated Republican Women's Group and the Children's Home Society of Bay County along with Todd Herendeen, held a fantastic event at the Todd Herendeen Theatre on November 09, 2019. This event was to help the Children's Home Society of Bay County fund their "Open Doors" Program to STOP Human Trafficking.
All who attended thoroughly enjoyed the evening which included a full show (and what a great show!!!) by Todd Herendeen, his wife and his band. We also had a wonderful Barbecue dinner supplied by Major's Barbecue on highway 390. We had a silent auction going on with all the proceeds going to the CHS. At the end of the program, Todd donated a guitar, signed by him, his wife and band members and then he held a Live auction for it to help fund this program at CHS.
We will present the proceeds to CHS at the next Bay County Federated Women's Club meeting (to be held on 11/20/2019) at the Shrimp Boat Restaurant in St Andrews. Meeting starts at 11:00am with lunch and fellowship and the business meeting starts at 12:00pm. All are encouraged to attend this event. Hopefully we can get the media there to cover the check presentation to The Children's Society! See you there!

The Bay County Federated Republican women's Club (BCFRW) held their first meeting at our new venue, the Shrimp Boat Restaurant in St. Andrews. The meeting place was great! Their service, atmosphere and food was top notch! Could not have been any better. Our attendance was good considering this was our first meeting here.
Our speaker was Josie Strange, who is running for Panama City Beach Mayor. She spoke on her personal accomplishments and qualifications and her desire to unite PC Beach and Panama City with common goals and attitudes to each other
Julie Sanders(treasurer) and Terry spoke about the FFRW conference held in Orlando and the new membership fee structure mandated by new FFRW fees. Our new fees were voted on and approved by the members.
Debbie Woods spoke on the REC's event at the Bay County Gun Club on Steelfield Road, This will be a Sporting Clays shotgun match with 18 stations. Sponsorships and individual shooters are encouraged to participate. This will be held on December 14th 2019 and further information and flyers will be coming soon.
Terry Cypher updated everyone with the Todd Herendeen and the Children's Home Society event to benefit CHS's Open Doors Program and Human Trafficking, which will be held on November 9th at the Todd Herendeen Theatre. Revenues and donations are growing fast and this is GOING to be a GREAT event!!

As of October 16, 2019 , the venue for the Bay County Federated Republican Women, will move to the Shrimp Boat Restaurant in St. Andrews ( on Beck Ave.) The meetings will be held at the same time , only the venue has changed. This became necessary due to a limitation of space at Sonny’s and the lack of any hurricane repairs being made to our former meeting place, Shipyard. Another plus is that the menu is more comprehensive and is comparable to Shipyard, Sonny’s or the Olive Garden price wise. Our new home can easily hold 40-60 people and the atmosphere and vistas are beautiful! Attached with the attached photos is a copy of the menu. Terry will add her comments to this topic and we both look forward to seeing everybody here on October 16th!!!

BCFRW held their meeting on Wednesday, September 18th at Sonny’s BBQ in Lynn Haven. Our speaker was to be Mark McQueen but he was called to an emergency meeting in Tallahassee. He sent his Assistant City Manager, Jared Jones, who presented information pertaining to the recovery efforts of Bay County from hurricane Michael. He also included the funding efforts and details of their status and where to find out more information online.
Our event with Children’s Home Society and their Open Doors program “We are not for sale” on November 9th with Todd Herendeen at his theatre was again discussed and tickets were given out to sell.
It was announced that as of October16 our venue will move from Sonny’s to the Shrimp Boat Restaurant in St. Andrews. It will held at the same time and on the third Wednesday of each month. More menu and location details to follow!
We had an excellent meeting with a packed house at Sonny’s!
