A big draw for new members? blue bird boxes!

The 2014 kickoff meeting of Osage Plains chapter was a big success with a craft project. Osage Plains moved the meeting night from the 3rd Monday nights of each month to the 4th Monday night which enabled Elizabeth Middleton to be our new president. She advertised the meeting for Monday night February the 24th in the Clinton paper and many members brought friends. A great time was had by 25 people pounding boards in the friend’s room of the library building blue bird boxes! Several people expressed interest in joining!!
