The Republican Women of Upshur County are actively working toward a Republican victory in November. The national election is so close to our primary run-off that there hasn't been a real break in activity.
The group, however, has planned periodic field trips to learn more about what the community and the area offers in the way of services, recreation and business.
The first visit was to the Upshur County Food Bank. Many did not realize that Upshur County has a food bank. The group was very surprised to learn how the food bank is connected to the East Texas Food Bank which sells food to the local service at exceptionally good prices. Volunteers sort, box, sack and distribute the food Monday and Wednesday mornings from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The Republican Women of Upshur County has adopted the Upshur County Food Bank, and has donated funds to it and will continue to do so periodically.
Recently, the group of ladies plus visitors rode a bus to Tyler where everyone enjoyed lunch at Mercado's, a tour of the Brookshire Museum and a visit to Fresh by Brookshire's. Some had never been to the Brookshire Museum; and, most had not been to the new Brookshire's facility. This day trip is certainly recommended.
Coming up will be a trip to a local winery.
If any of these type things (trips and politics) are appealing to you, join the Republican Women of Upshur County at their regular meeting on the second Thursday of each month at noon at the Annex of the Gilmer Church of Christ.
