Thursday, October 17, 2019, we had our General Meeting!
Thank you to all who attended the meeting. And we missed those who could not attend. We were excited to see a few new faces in the crowd.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, our fellow member and breast cancer survivor, Kimberly McDaniel, spoke of her breast cancer journey. We thank Kimberly for sharing her story of how her faith, family and friend’s support, and her positive attitude helped her. Thank you for educating us on the different types of breast cancer, and how to be there for a person with breast cancer. We join Kimberly in encouraging all of our members to do self exams and schedule regular visits to their physician.
We are gearing up for the Casino Night and Art Auction on Friday, November 8. This is one of our most fun events. See below for more information on how you can help with the event.
