December 10, 2014

We will not be keeping regular office hours between now and January 3. I wish you all a special time with family and friends during this blessed holiday season.

Many of us enjoyed our annual Christmas party last Sunday; our good volunteers packed out LaZingara, and we welcomed our state party chairman Tim Schneider, as well as Congressman Bob Dold and his whole family. State Rep. David & Michelle Harris were with us, as was our State Central Committeeman (10th District) Mark Shaw. And we were pleased that Gary Seyring & Joe Folisi came from Schaumburg Township and that Bob Grogan, the DuPage County Auditor, attended.

Our own
Tax Review Commissioner Dan Patlak helped me emcee the occasion, and Women's Club incoming president Lisa Smith presented a memory book to outgoing president Penny Pullen to thank her for 10+ years at the helm of our auxiliary. And, of course, our township officials: Supervisor Mike Schroeder, Assessor Jerry Sadler, Hwy. Commissioner Scott Saewert & Trustees Kathy Penner, Mike Domrzalski & Robert Hoban.

Arlington Hts. Veterans Memorial chairman Greg Padovani made an announcement at our party Sunday which I am eager to pass along to you. The Marine Corps Toys for Tots is running behind on toys for donating to Chicago area children this Christmas. If you can help fill this need, please bring toys for boys and/or girls aged birth to 13 to the American Legion Post at 121 N. Douglas, Arlington Heights, any day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Donated toys must be unwrapped, new and in the original packaging; stuffed animals are not preferred. Let's do our part for this annual Toys for Tots drive for the Chicago area US Marines. Thank you!

Mark Saturday, Jan. 10 on your calendar for our next regular meeting, here at HQ at 8:30 a.m. Let's start 2015 together!

Please join me in expressing sympathy to the son of
Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, who passed away this morning. She will surely be missed. 

Faithfully, Ruth O’Connell
Republican Committeeman

We'll be closing the office after Saturday's shift this week ... closed all week to observe Thanksgiving. I wish you all a time of blessing and fellowship with family and friends, commemorating the blessing that is America.

We'll reopen in December (coming up fast!) and the next item on the agenda is our annual Christmas party at LaZingara, Dec. 7, 3 to 5 p.m. You are invited! No charge, but we do ask that you bring a hat, scarf and/or gloves (unwrapped!) for a needy child in the township, if you so choose.

As the results become more final, we can now report with confidence that Wheeling Township's Republican vote for governor was the highest in Cook County. Congratulations and thanks to all of you who helped so much to keep us #1.

Things are much quieter at HQ these days, but we are getting things done and getting ready for the next round of activity. We had a volunteer here today addressing envelopes for the Lincoln Day Dinner 2015; though we don't yet know when it will be, we will be ready!

And we're sending letters to several of our friends in public office, asking them to help sponsor our 
annual Christmas party at LaZingara, Dec. 7, 3 to 5 p.m. (Mark your calendar and plan to attend.)

Our Republican Women of Wheeling Township will hear from State Rep. Tom Morrison this Saturday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m., at HQ, 909 E. Rand Road, Arlington Heights. The annual election of officers is on the agenda, and Tom will talk about the election, the legislative session about to open in Springfield and the future as he sees it. All are welcome to attend. 

Faithfully, Ruth O’Connell
Republican Committeeman
