Darke County Republican Women’s Club donates

$1,000 given to Darke County Veteran’s Washington DC trip

(L to R) DCRWC President Betty Hill, DCRWC Treasurer Cindy Pike and DCRWC Ways and Means Chairman Delores Ely present a check for $1,000 to Darke County Veterans’ Services Director Tom Pitman to be used to help fund the 2020 Darke County Veterans Washington, DC Trip.
GREENVILLE, OHIO – The Darke County Republican Women’s Club (DCRWC) recently held a Quarter Auction to raise funds to benefit the Darke County Veteran’s Services (DCVS) 2020 Washington DC Trip.

DCVS Director Tom Pitman was the featured speaker at the Club’s February meeting. After his speech, the club presented him with a check for $1,000 which represented the funds raised by the Quarter Auction and other donations.

“The club members chose the Washington, DC trip to be the recipient of its fund raising for 2019. We felt this was a wonderful way to give back to the veterans of our community,” said Betty Hill, DCRWC President.

Pitman told about the history of the Veterans’ Washington, D.C. trip. The first trip was in 2006 in conjunction with another county. Since then trips have been sponsored for only Darke County Veterans in 2013, 2017, 2018 and 2019. There is only one other county in Ohio that provides similar trips for its veterans. The 2019 trip was three days and two nights with additional stops in Gettysburg and the 911 Flight 93 memorial in Pennsylvania.

The DCVS provides training to connect veterans to available services and benefits. It is not connected to the Veteran’s Administration. The Ohio Revised Code sets up a County Commission in each county to oversee that county’s Veteran’s Services.

DCRWC is a political group founded to provide political education and legislative information; provide a wider knowledge of the principles of the Republican Party; increase the number of registered Republicans; recruit, promote, and support qualified Republican women for political office; give exposure to and work actively for all Republican candidates; and lend support to the activities of other Republican organizations. The DCRWC is a multi-generational, multi-cultural organization providing the structure and support for political activists to learn, engage, and flourish. The Club is chartered by the National Federation of Republican Women and is a member of the Ohio Federation of Republican Women. For more information, visit: or email President Betty Hill at:
