December Board Meeting Scheduled for 1st-2nd in Branson

Will We See You In Branson?

By popular demand, the Grand Plaza in Branson is the site for the December Board meeting December 1-2. Save your calories on Friday so you can indulge with the Executive Committees Open House. They are making promises of soup, sandwiches and totally sinful desserts.

Of course we will once again hold the Foundation’s Annual Christmas Auction, where yours truly will be the auctioneer on record. Branson is an exciting place in December, so come early and stay a couple extra days to enjoy the Christmas festivities, unique to Branson. See a show or do some early holiday shopping.

Times for Friday and Saturday

Be there at 6:30 Friday night to join the group for the Open House followed by the Foundation Auction. Saturday morning you will enjoy an amazing hot breakfast buffet which is included in your room rate. You will then head to the Board of Directors meeting. Registration begins at 8:30 and the meeting at 9:00. There might be more goodies to share at that time as we exchange Christmas cards.

Room Reservations

Remember the reservations for the Grand Plaza Hotel are made through the Branson Tourism Center and must be placed by November 4, 2017. You can bring the family and spend an extra day or two. The rate is good for additional nights; just let the Tourism Center know when you make your reservations. The room rate is all-inclusive. NOTE: Calling the hotel directly will not get you the BWM rate but something much higher.

Foundation Auction

What’s in that beautifully wrapped package? Can you decipher the cleverly written clue to determine what it holds? We think the Foundation Auction will be the highlight of the December Board Meeting!

Once again, the Foundation will hold an auction on Friday night during the Christmas Open House. The Foundation asks everyone to bring a wrapped gift with a clue to the contents. The gift should be new or gently used, and something you would like to receive. The clue may be funny, mysterious, or to the point. Remember, the money raised contributes to the Foundation Scholarship Fund, which aids deserving women to further their education. We appreciate the EC and all BWM sisters who help the Foundation award scholarships.

Here’s What You Need To Do

  1. Register for the Board Meeting
  2. Reserve Your Room through the Branson Tourism Center
  3. Bring a Wrapped Gift for the Auction with a Clue
  4. Bring Your Puzzle Piece from the State Conference (We want to put the puzzle together!)
  5. Bring any Christmas Cards or Goodies You’d Like to Share with Fellow Members

We’re excited to see all of you!
