Republican Women to hear from Marie Cordes

Staff reports

The Douglas County Republican Women’s Club will meet Wednesday, Jan. 7, 1998, at the Carson Valley Inn.

The guest speaker will be Brian Maloney, well-known talk show host for KOH Radio.

In addition to the special guest speaker, the group will also honor Carson Valley resident Marie Cordes. This active senior citizen, born and raised in the Carson Valley, knits lap robes for the veterans in the Veterans’ Hospital in Reno. Members should make reservations early, as this is sure to be an interesting program, says spokes-person Shaaron Snead.

“Also, if you have any extra knitting yarn that you don’t need, please bring it for Marie, as she can always use extra yarn for the lap robes,” Snead said.

The event will begin with social hour at 11 a.m., followed by lunch and the program at noon.

Call 266-3435 or 267-5066 for reservations by Monday, Jan. 5, 1998.
