Centralia BPW kicked off 2018 with our 2nd annual Trivia Night. The committee co-chaired by Cary Day and Emily Kracht, chose to theme the night Groundhog Day Trivia. Participants competed for cash prizes for the top three teams. The committee also assembled over 20 baskets to be auctioned off as well as a 50/50 drawing and a drawing for Cardinals tickets. The night was filled with fun and friendly competition and was huge success.
At our January general meeting, the club added 4 new members; we were very excited to start the year with new interest and hope this will be a continuing trend throughout 2018.
Looking forward to March the club will hold our annual Reality Store for community 8th graders. This event is always fun for both the kids and all volunteers. It is eye opening from all perspectives as we as adults often forget the culture shock experienced when we learned about and put into practice things like mortgages, student loans, groceries, child care, etc. And the students learn that just because you make a certain salary doesn’t mean that is the number you will see in your bank account.
Guest Night will be held in April. This night is when we recognize our Scholarship Recipients as well as anniversary members who have been a part of the organization for many years.
2018 is shaping up to be a fun and fantastic year for Centralia Business and Professional Women, we cannot wait to share it with you!
