The following photos are from the Spring Board Meeting of the National Federation of Republican Women in New Orleans, March 15 – 17, 2012.    Republican women  from clubs all over the country who  attended this meeting were treated to wonderful speakers and very informative workshops.  One of our workshop speakers, Anita Moncrief, is a former dedicated Democrat who worked for ACORN.   When she discovered the corruption in ACORN, she became a political activist   trying to get the truth out about this organization.   In the weeks ahead, I will be giving more information about Anita as she is now a blogger and has her own website.

Since this three-day meeting coincided with St Patrick’s Day on the 17th,  I’ve included photos of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the French Quarter which as you will see, was a lot of fun.   Hope you enjoy the photos  and join us for our next Federation meeting  which will be in Louisville, Kentucky in September, 2012.   Nancy
