Here comes Independence Day - this Saturday - and I hope you will show your red,white & blue by walking with us in the Arlington Heights parade. Plan to join our unit - # 56 - at 9:30 a.m. in the St. Peter's area (Olive west of Arlington Hts. Road). 

Weather forecast for Saturday: Perfect parade weather! Mostly sunny skies, temps nearing 80.

I hope our whole team will be wearing our distinctive navy-blue ROWT t-shirts. Get one today to dress right for the parade and also to wear around town this summer. We'll need to know your size so we can be sure to have one for you. We do ask a donation of $10 to cover our cost.

Before we walk, we need willing hands this Friday to help decorate our float in the parking lot behind HQ. Bring a friend, if you can. We'll be getting together at 7 p.m. and working till we get it done.

As I mentioned last week, we will be hosting a voter registrar training session at HQ on Tuesday, July 14, 7 p.m. Please come for this session, whether or not you have qualified in the past. We all need a refresher to learn the new rules and for handling the new forms. Let me know as soon as you can that you will be participating; I'll need your name, address and phone number; you can send it to us via  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Happy Independence Day!

Independence Day is right around the corner, and we are looking forward to your walking with us in the Arlington Heights parade on Saturday, July 4. Plan to join our unit at 9:30 a.m. Next week I should be able to tell you the unit number and approximate location.

Now's the time to get a distinctive navy-blue ROWT t-shirt to show your colors in the parade and also to wear around town this summer. We'll need to know your size so we can be sure to have one for you. We do ask a donation of $10 to cover our cost. Come in tomorrow evening between 4 and 6 or this Saturday between 10:30 and 1 to get outfitted.

Next Friday (July 3), we will need volunteers to help decorate our float in the parking lot behind HQ. Can you come around 6:30? And bring a friend, if you can. It's a good opportunity to introduce someone to our team.

Let's celebrate our nation together!

Then mark your calendar for 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 14, to get trained as a voter registrar ... such an important service for our neighbors, our candidates and our party. The rules and the registration form have changed somewhat, I'm told, so I strongly urge even those who are already "deputy registrars" to make plans now to be with us that evening for a refresher.

Faithfully,

It was good to see so many of you at the memorial service for Sarah Tait last evening. Our hearts go out to the Taits and also to the family of Joanna Glombowski. Two such fine Republican families.

Sen. Matt Murphy will host a town-hall briefing tonight, June 3, at 7 p.m. at Arlington Heights Village Hall. He will update us on the Dem-precipitated crisis in Springfield, where the legislature will resume session tomorrow despite its May 31 deadline. I encourage you to go and hear Matt's take on the situation and ask questions.

The Republican Women-sponsored tour of the Holocaust Museum in Skokie was a moving and educational experience. Those who attended are now better equipped to talk with friends about the enormity of what was done to millions of innocent people in the name of power and hate. As a special feature, the tour guides were former State Rep. Sid Mathias and his wife Rita, who spoke from the personal experience of losses in their own family and added moving perspective to the museum's already moving exhibits. A big thank-you to club president Lisa Smith and vice president Priscilla Hagglund for arranging this special morning.

Faithfully,

Ruth O’Connell
