3. Ronald Reagan Birthday Celebration and Awards Reception

Every February, the New York Young Republican Club hosts our most special event of the year. We hold our Ronald Reagan Birthday celebration and Awards Reception, where we pay tribute to the man who has inspired so many of us to become active in the fight for liberty.

Last years honorees were the National Interest's John O'Sullivan (Great Communicator award), former Deputy Mayor Tony Coles (Shining City on a Hill award) and civil rights activist Roy Innis (Four Pillars of Freedom award). It was a wonderful event that everyone fully enjoyed.

3. Republican Reform Summit

On Tuesday, January 11, 2005 a group of grassroots republican leaders
from across New York City and surrounding areas will gather to discuss
the future of the New York Republican Party. After the debacle of the
Mills campaign - with the GOP's hand-picked nominee giving Sen. Charles
Schumer the largest margin of victory in a Senate race in NY History -
the Democrats gaining control of many former Republican strongholds
like Nassau and Westchester counties, and the state GOP's disconnect
with local activists, many leaders have come to the same conclusion -
that a major shake-up is needed to the get the party back on track. If
you are interested in attending, please email our chairman at
[email protected] to rsvp or with any questions.

WHEN: Tuesday, January 11, 2005, 8pm
WHERE: Belle Harbor Yacht Club, Beach Channel Drive (bet Beach 126th
and Beach 127th)

4. Hillary for President

Not ready to hear those words yet? Well, some people with a good sense
of humor are already preparing for it.
