Women’s Republican Club turns 70

The Pickaway County Women’s Republican Club recently celebrated its 70th anniversary with a reception at the Pickaway County District Library. The club, affiliated with the Ohio Federation of Republican Women and National Federation of Republican Women, was founded April 29, 1949. Various records from over the years were displayed along with some historical facts. Some of the current members dressed in the styles of the 1940s. Betty Caudill has been a member since 1980 and Jane Lynch has held every office in the Club. Proclamations to mark the milestone were presented to President Sandy Darby from Ohio House Rep. Gary Scherer, Ohio state Sen. Larry Obhof, state Sen. Bob Peterson, and Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose. To celebrate the occasion the members have published their very own cookbook which is available for $10. The club meets the fourth Monday of each month at 108 S. Court St. in Circleville.
