The Bucks County Council of Republican Women was organized in 1923 by a group of local women ready to serve the Bucks County Republican Committee.
With the motto "Commence, Continue, Cooperate" this group of civic, social and political leaders crowded into the auditorium of Mechanics Hall in Doylestown on June 9, 1923 to call their first meeting to order.
Through the leadership and determination of these original members and those who have followed throughout the decades, the tradition continues.
The objectives of the council are explained as "The Council is just another step in the advancement of women in citizenship, impressing upon them their duty in civic affairs, acting as the clearinghouse of political information and a means to enrolling all republican women in the party they uphold because they believe it is the most effective one."
"Commence, Continue, Cooperate"
