February general meeting

The February BWC meeting will be held tomorrow night, February 12th at 6:00 pm at the Kingdom Seed Ministries at 118 S. 9th Street in Mt. Vernon. Our guest speaker will be Mandy Bazillion from the Mended Little Hearts organization. Our community project is donations of small items or cash for the United Way “Pioneer Woman” silent auction basket. Business to be discussed will be the upcoming Scholarship Luncheon, the IFBWC State Convention in April, future community projects and the Candidates Forum. It is important for our members to attend so you know what is currently happening in our Local as well as to have an input in decisions effecting future projects and involvement by the Mt. Vernon BWC. I know the weather is not the best but having a quorum present is essential. Hope to see you then!
