**Due to Thanksgiving, we are meeting a week earlier than normal. This is our last meeting of 2019 and we will be stuffing purses!

Join us for lunch, discussion of current and relevant issues related to women in business along with fantastic networking.

We are kicking it into full gear collecting items and purses for the Solid Ground Purse Drive. We need to get to 40 purses! Remember - we're looking for larger MOM SIZE bags, as each of the women at Solid Ground have 1 - 3 children. We're also looking for items to put in the bags, so if your company has something to donate, I'll gladly accept. I've also found some great deals when shopping the clearance aisle.   

For those of you who don't know, the Women in Business group provides the women at Solid Ground with a new purse filled with goodies each year for their Christmas program. We collect all the items and will have a special luncheon on November 21st to stuff and present them.

If you haven't been to a Women in Business lunch - please join us. The only cost is for your lunch.
