Sometimes it’s hard to get plugged into a group of people that are around your age range that have similar beliefs, values, and interests as yourself. However, finding that tribe of people is such a huge part of our community. That’s why the establishment of the Denton County Young Republicans is such a huge milestone for the young people of our county.
The Denton County Young Republicans kick-off took place in August of 2021. “We have a pretty good following and it’s really grown in the short time that we’ve been around,” Lauren Homeyer, President of the Denton County Young Republicans said.
The Denton County Young Republicans consist of a group of people ages fewer than 40 with the youngest age being 18. The members of the group meet every second Wednesday of every month. These meetings are held at different happy hour locations around Denton County. “We want to make sure that we’re reaching all corners of our County,” Lauren said.
The Denton County Young Republicans is a great way to network, meet, and socialize with others that are around your age and are in similar walks of life. “We’re a very laid-back group,” Lauren said.
In their short period of time of being established, the Denton County Young Republicans have made great connections in the community. They’ve had incredible guest speakers such as Texas State Senator Drew Springer and Member of the Texas House of Representatives Jared Patterson. “We’ve built great political relationships,” Lauren said.
In the New Year, the Denton County Young Republicans would like to focus on growing their membership as well as giving back and getting plugged into the community through different nonprofits and community service groups.
If you are looking to get involved in your community while also making connections and building strong and influential relationships, the Denton County Young Republicans are the group for you.
