NOVEMBER 2018

FROM THE PRESIDENT

Happy Turkey Month!

Ladies, thank you so much for a great BPW Week! We had such a great time with the Woman of the Year (Michele Pennington) and Boss of the Year (Rob Mueller)! We had excellent coverage from the media and social media traffic spiked quite a bit on our two Facebook Live events (Award Reception & Style Show). I hope you are all looking forward to the holiday season...including our Christmas party (see details below)! Before we know it, it'll be a new year and that means TRIVIA! Register your teams today! ;)

ONE HOPE UNITED PROJECT

Once again this year I am purchasing $5.00 gift cards from McDonalds for all the kids at One Hope United which will be used as Stocking Stuffers for them.  Any extra money will be used to purchase cards from Dairy Queen for the staff to use later as rewards.  
This project is near to my heart.  I feel it is important to let the kids know we care and will be accepting donations at the November and December BPW meetings.
Thank you for your support!

A note from Legislation Chair, Carrie Perkins-Schnicker

Watching the news of the shootings and hate dominating the headlines, has reminded me of one of the best things about BPW.  As Sisters we lift each other up and celebrate diversity. Listening to the brags at our meetings always reinforces this when members brag on each other rather than themselves.  We as BPW Sisters can work together, regardless of political party affiliation and ideals, to better our community. We work side by side, women of all races and beliefs to help others and bring about positive change and unity. Imagine how effective our government would be, and how different our country could be if our leaders worked this way. 

P.S. Don't forget those "I Voted" Stickers for a raffle!

Carrie Perkins-Schnicker, Legislation Co-Chair
Make sure to save the date for our annual Trivia Night in January 25, 2019!
