We will start with our business meeting, after which we will briefly discuss the continued opposition and shameful behavior of the left.

Seems they are not hearing what they are preaching, both sides working together, really? Our 45th president has been in office since

January 19 2017 and the protests are ongoing. What can we do to stop it and who has the right answers?

Next will be our guest speaker for the evening, Roy Queen, a club member. By popular request, he will again present a slide presentation on the Convention of States Project.  What you can do to return our country to its original vision of a limited federal government, that is of, by and for the people!    Please ask your Delegates and Senators to support current resolutions in Annapolis, sponsored by Delegate Tony McConkey ( HJ0007 ) and Senator Gail Bates (SJ0003 ) that will help restore power back to our State Legislature and the citizens of Maryland!

After a business meeting, it will be our pleasure to welcome as our guest speaker Mr. Lewis Porter. He is the head of an organization called, “MD 20 – 20 Watch.” Mr. Porter started the group after he personally became aware that voter fraud was indeed going on in the state of Maryland, in Baltimore City to be exact, during the 2012 elections.

After realizing that voter fraud in MD was real, he dedicated his life of bringing his findings, facts, evidence, recommendations to the voters in MD. His group is working with voters and concerned citizens hoping to bring voter fraud to everyone’s attention and join his movement to STOP this criminal activity !

Have you ever thought about voter fraud and what it does to our voting process? The WCRC urges all voters and citizens to attend this meeting on Wednesday Sept. 28 – 7PM at the Funkstown American Legion. Bring family, friends neighbors etc.and bring paper and pen, we are sure you will want to take notes of Mr. Porters presentation. He will not only talk on the issue of voter fraud, but will offer information on what all of us can do, to help eliminate this terrible crime !

Our meetings are always open to the public, even if you are not a member of the club, however we would be proud to have you join us anytime. Dues are still only $25.00 per person and $35.00 per couple. All are welcome !  VOTER REGISTRATION AVAILABLE ON SITE !!!
