I am excited to announce that we are having CASA speak to us this coming Tuesday evening. They will share what is happening in the Springfield area and detail what they do to assist children in dire situations.
I hope to see you at the meeting and look forward to hearing what’s new in your life. Looking over the names in the emails I know some of you are still in the area, while others have moved away. It has been awhile since I have seen you. I want you to know that you are missed and never too far from my thoughts. This past year has been a busy one for all of us. Looking forward to a great 2016.
We have been very successful with the scholarship fund raising and look forward to March 26th Bar n Bites starting at 6pm. The price for bar n bites this year will be $25.00 if you purchase beforehand, otherwise it will be $30.00 at the door. This year we will be located at The Old Glass Place, thanks to Al and Roger graciously hosting the event. We plan on having drink and food stations as well as a cash bar. There will be flyers at Tuesday night meeting with additional details. Bring your cash or checks to purchase your tickets and we will bring Spring in style at Bar n Bites.
Also want to congratulate Steph Perkins as the new Director Executive Director of PROMO. It has been my pleasure the past several years to know Steph and the leadership he has provided to our community and at a state level representing us and alerting us to agendas and bills that would not favor who we are in this area.
So come out Tuesday night and show us you haven’t forgotten about us – Happy Hour starts at 6pm, you don’t have to drink, we meet at Springfield Brewing Company upstairs in the big back room so lots of time to socialize. If you can’t make it email me and let us know that you are still alive and kicking. It would be great to hear back from those who have moved away or can’t attend due to scheduling or health issues.
