Revived Foothills Chapter Breaks Record
Chapter Chairman George Thomas and
his dynamic Co-Chairman wife Bonnie
The Los Angeles County Lincoln Clubs has had hundreds of outstanding chapter meetings over our thirty years of independent existence. As part of the United Republican Finance Committee (URFC) in the 1960s and 70s, we had many more.
But in the four years plus since George and Bonnie Thomas assumed the mantle of leadership of the Foothills Lincoln Club, records have fallen like dominos.
In June 2009, they set the single chapter meeting attendance record with almost 150 paid attendees for legendary conservative icon Bruce Herschensohn.
In early 2010, they broke the chapter membership record of 60 paid members set in 2006 by the formidable Dr. Barbara Stone in the San Gabriel Valley Chapter.
In 2011, they hit the century mark in paid membership at 100!
In 2012, they exceeded 125 paid members. “My goal is to get to 150 and then maintain for awhile” said a confident Co-Chairman Bonnie Thomas.
Each of their monthly meetings has at least 100 attendees at the exclusive Annandale Golf Club in Pasadena to hear excellent speakers while enjoying great company and fine dining.
“George and Bonnie Thomas have done an outstanding job of bringing the free enterprise, limited government message of the Lincoln Clubs to their part of Los Angeles County” said Lincoln Clubs Chairman Robert A. Virtue. “Californians are tired of the deficit spending in Sacramento and Washington. They realize the Republican message of personal and fiscal responsibility is just the medicine California and the rest of the country needs. That is why our organization is growing as we gear up for a big election next year. Great leadership plus a good message equals success”
