Steve Ranson, Lahontan Valley News Editor Emeritus

Their guest speaker will be Steve R. Ranson, Editor Emeritus, Lahontan Valley News. Ranson will be discussing his new book, Legacies of the Silver State: Nevada Goes to War.  Recently completed with colleagues Kenneth Beaton and David C. Henley, this is a compilation of 71 stories of courage and Nevadan service men and woman who showed intrepidness and bravery when facing the enemy, either in battle or as POW’s in concentration camps.

The FRW’s Caring for America/Adopt a Soldier Program collects non-perishable foods for the Fernley Food Bank, along with donations of funds and care items for their adopted soldiers.  The soldiers need single serving food items, personal care items, and most especially, cards and letters from home. The Literacy Committee collects new or slightly used children’s books for Bow Wow Books, an organization that teamed up with the Fernley Library. Bow Wow Reading Dogs are non-judgmental certified therapy dogs who listen to children reading aloud. The dog’s handler has been educated on how to help readers learn to read. All contributions for these important programs will be greatly appreciated.  Financial contributions can be sent to the FRW at P.O. Box 412, Fernley, Nevada 89408.

Fernley Republican Women is a group of women (and men as associate members) who share similar conservative values and ideals, and who are dedicated to increasing the influence and effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through political education and active political participation.
