Curry women’s club
The Curry County Federated Republican Women’s club celebrated the Christmas season on Dec. 7 with a membership tea at the home of President Carolyn Shipley.
Members brought hors d’oerves and desserts to share. Eighteen members and guests attended.

Senatorial candidate David Pfeffer from Sante Fe was the special guest and Cleta Shipley joined as a new member. Anna Skaggs prepared a special presentation for Rep. Anna Crook remembering Crook’s college days.

In January, CCFRW hosted a senatorial primary forum at the Clovis-Carver Public Library. All five Republican candidates attended.

State Sen. Tom Benevides, Steve Gavi, David Pfeffer, Dr. Allen McCulloch and State Sen. Joe Carraro responded to questions submitted by the candidates and the audience.
Also in attendance was Maj. Jim Bibb, candidate for attorney general.

The organization will have a booth at the Curry County Fair in August to register voters and campaign for our candidates.
