The mission of Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated is to bring women together to educate members about local, state and national issues; to improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County through political activity and community involvement; to advance the participation of Republican women in all areas of our political system; and to encourage and support qualified Republican women to seek and win public office. 

Message from President Sheila Vaughen         

Thank you members for being a part of Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated!  We have very important work ahead of us as we look to the elections of 2014 and 2016.  One of the primary goals of RWOF is to promote and support Republican candidates and office holders at the local, state and national levels.  And if those candidates are women, all the better! Another of our goals is to keep our members, as well as the community, informed about issues that affect us all.  As Republican women, we also work to be heard by elected officials of all party affiliation and we have some exciting plans for that this year as well.  Besides these important objectives, we consider it an honor to support our community in ways that affect literacy, education, and our military veterans.  If you are considering becoming a member, please join us at our 1st Wednesday luncheons where you can meet with like-minded ladies, learn about the issues from our speakers, and get to know your local candidates through Forums and the “Candidate Moments” section of our meeting.  On behalf of the RWOF Board, welcome!


Mary Anne Windes, 2nd Vice President, (2nd from left) greeted new members (l-r) Mary Ann Leone, Lacey Powell Clark and Armand Izzo. Welcome!

Caring for America Project - Cookies for the VA Clinic

Every Thursday  RWOF members take 4 - 5 dozen cookies (more if you are so inclined) to the VA Clinic between 8:00 - 8:30 a.m.  Cookies are to be individually wrapped in sandwich bags with an RWOF label placed on each bag.  Chocolate chip, NO NUTS, is the favorite.  Cookies may be baked or purchased.
The clinic is located on Eglin Parkway on the right before reaching Eglin's main gate.
