Republican Women to discuss UN treaty issues

Special to the Register

Gainesville — “What does the UN have in store for US?” is the program for the Feb. 7 meeting of Cooke County Republican Women. The meeting will be held at the fellowship hall of the First Christian Church at 400 N. Commerce, beginning at 7 p.m.

Speaker MerryLynn Gerstenschlager will discuss the United Nations’ most recent conference on global warming which she attended in Doha, Qatar. She will also talk about pending UN treaties dealing with other issues, treaties which some believe could infringe on the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

Gerstenschlager has been an official observer at 18 UN conferences, 10 of which have addressed climate change. She serves as the Vice President and Education Liaison for Texas Eagle Forum.

She is a Parker County Precinct Chairman, was an Alternate Delegate to the 2004 Republican Convention in New York City and a Delegate to the 2008 Convention in Minneapolis. She received the Texas Federation of Republican Women’s Tribute to Women Award in 2006.

A reception will follow the meeting and guests are welcome. For information, contact Dianne Helms at (940)368-0007, or Susan Hughes at (940)727-4468.
