Women's Council Newsletter August 2018

Hello Everyone! I hope you all have enjoyed a fun and safe Summer! This is a busy time for many families as we move back into school time and also a busy time for the Women's Council as we have so many great projects underway! I want to personally invite you to attend a couple of social events we have on the calendar. The first is a Hands-On Cooking Class with the Conway Regional Culinary Wellness team. It will be a great opportunity for networking and learning to cook some healthy, nutritious food! The other opportunity is our Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon. The Luncheon will provide an opportunity to celebrate survivors, learn about breast cancer, and join in fellowship with fellow Women's Council Members. We would love to see you at one or both of these events! There is more information about both below in the newsletter. As always, thank you for your continued dedication and work for the Women's Council. Without all of you, we would not be able to offer the many services and programs to the community! Enjoy the rest of your Summer and we hope to see you soon!
