Camarillo Republican Women Federated History
In 1953 a dozen women formed a Republican women’s club for the west end of Ventura County. The group met in a small room at the community center at Dizdar Park. They were assisted by Tillie Hathaway a member of the Central committee from Ventura. Betty Hartman was our first president. The area which was largely farmland ran from the Santa Clara river to Los Angeles County. It was known as Pleasant Valley thus the name Pleasant Valley Republican Women’s Club was adopted. Camarillo was the largest town with a population of 6000 and did not incorporate as a city until 1964.
In 1972 a second Republican women’s group began meeting in the homes of members. They received their charter in 1979 as the Las Posas Republican Women with Rebecca Riley as their first president.
The name of the original club was changed in 1983 to Camarillo Pleasant Valley Republican Women’s Club and changed again in 1996 to Camarillo Republican Women Federated. The sister club became the Las Posas Republican Women Federated. The two clubs worked on several events together particularly registering voters and doing election activities.
In the fall of 2010, representatives of the two clubs met to discuss a merger. They believed one combined club would be stronger than the two separate clubs. Southern Division and CFRW Chairmen provided guidelines to follow and the Las Posas Club members voted to dissolve their club and merge with the Camarillo club. New bylaws were adopted and a new charter was issued in December 2010 to the Las Posas/Camarillo Republican Women Federated.
In 2011 the newly combined club started with officers serving from each club as Co-presidents and Co-program and Co-membership Vice Presidents. In 2014 this combined club changed the name back to Camarillo Republican Women Federated and has remained under this name since. We are one of the larger clubs in California and very active working on local issues, supporting candidates, providing educational speakers and supporting the community and military.
