~Pam Myhra, President, MN Federation of Republican Women
In May we salute these outstanding Americans and events that made our country great:
On May 5, 1961, Alan Shepard became the first American in space.
On May 5, 1865, “Decoration Day” was first observed with the tradition of decorating soldiers’ graves with flowers. The observance date was later moved to May 30th and became better known as Memorial Day. In 1971, Congress moved Memorial Day to the last Monday in May, thus creating a three-day holiday weekend.
On May 8, 1884, Harry S. Truman, the 33rd U.S. President was born in Missouri. He was the last of only nine U.S. Presidents who did not attend college. His straightforward, honest, no-nonsense style earned him the nickname, “Give ‘em hell, Harry.”
On May 14 in 1607, the first permanent English settlement in America was established at Jamestown, Virginia.
On May 14 in 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark departed St. Louis on their expedition to explore the Northwest.
On May 20, 1932, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.

We believe the strength of our nation lies within the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
We believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all regardless of race, creed, age, sex, national origin or disability.
We believe that free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, growth and prosperity.
We believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
We believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
We believe the most effective, responsibly and responsive government is government closest to the people.
We believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
We believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
We believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
