The History of WROCK
WROCK met for the first official organizational meeting in November 2003 with fourteen women at the Lexington Country Club and the name WROCK (Women Republicans of Central Kentucky) was adopted.
This new Republican Women’s organization chartered with the National and State Federations of Republican Women four months later with 75 charter members.
WROCK members communicate almost exclusively by email with a monthly electronic newsletter and periodic legislative advocacy alerts (CAP Alerts).
The website address for WROCK is WROCK.ws.
WROCK encourages all members to become involved in a variety of ways to promote Republican candidates and Republican principles. WROCK also reaches into the community through current initiatives with Habitat for Humanity, Memory Walk, Race for the Cure, Winburn Middle School and U.S. Troops & Military Organizations.
WROCK is an affiliate of the National Federation of Republican Women, a grassroots organization with more than 100,000 members from the 50 states, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
