Note:  Shawn O'Donnell's is counting down the days to the annual celebration of St. Patrick's Day! We can join in by the "wearin' of the Green!" Keep in mind, too, that this may result in limited parking unless you arrive early and/or carpool! There is plenty of parking 2-3 blocks east of SOD (same side of road) at McCollum Park n'Ride, if you don't mind walking a bit.

We meet on the lower level of Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill & Irish Pub, 122 128th Street SE, Everett, WA 98208 (SOD).

ERWC's motto is "Women in the cause of good government". We seek to educate women about the Republican Party's values and to encourage and teach Republican Women about running for office.

Meetings are generally conducted from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, with a social hour starting at 6:00 PM and dinner at 6:30 PM (dinner is optional but encouraged, since this is how we pay for the room).

Each meeting begins with an Invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. The President opens the meeting and provides a Welcome message.

The annual membership dues are $45.  If you have any question about your renewal status, don’t hesitate to email us for confirmation.

Like you, the restaurant is experiencing higher costs for food, labor and shipping. Those increases have to be covered so the buffet charge is now $25 per person. If you do not plan to eat, we are suggesting a donation of $5 to help cover expenses (overhead, parking, etc.). Paying for dinner ($25) can be accomplished with cash, a check made payable to Shawn O’Donnell’s, credit card at the bar in the back, left-corner of the room, or using Zelle, either in advance or at registration, to: [email protected] When using Zelle, please be sure to indicate what the payment is for - membership dues, donations, dinner, etc.

Our system for managing dinners is as follows: once you’ve paid for dinner, you will be given a ticket which, after dinner is announced, you’ll give the ticket to the Shawn O’Donnell’s attendant at the bar, in exchange for a plate to fill at the buffet.

ERWC provides a headcount and SODs prepares for each meeting based on that headcount. Please be aware that NO SHOWs (i.e. those who RSVP for dinner, but do not cancel 48 hours prior to the meeting) are expected to pay. Having the correct numbers for seating and for food preparation is critical. We want to make sure we have enough for all, but we also do not want waste.

Membership dues paid by check must be made payable to ERWC and either sent to ERWC, P.O. Box 1254, Everett, WA 98206 or hand delivered to the registration desk at any meeting. They can also be paid by cash or via Zelle (see above).

Please invite your husband, family, and friends to join us for the evening. Ask anyone! Shawn O'Donnell's provides a wonderful buffet!    Again, the price is $25 per person. Not only are we grateful for the wonderful food each month and great service, but we are also appreciative of the location to hold our meetings. We hope you feel the same!

RSVP by sending an email to:  [email protected], indicating:

YES to attend and YES for dinner



Note: Shawn O'Donnell's is at 122 128th St. SE, Everett, WA 98208

Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.
