Greenville BPW Club to Choose Scholarship Finalists at March Meeting

Greenville, OH. The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) Scholarship Committee will host their monthly dinner meeting on Thursday, March 9th at the Private Dining Room at the Brethren’s Retirement Community.

Committee Chair Dorothy Poeppelman will introduce Darke County high school students vying for the scholarships that are available from the local BPW Club this year. The students have met certain criteria to qualify for the scholarships and will give a short presentation on their accomplishments and goals.

Club members are contributing with a “Have a Heart” donation for the Darke County Women’s Domestic Violence Shelter. Director Annie Sonner provided a list of items needed by the shelter including: paper products (toilet paper, Kleenex, and paper towels), twin bed plastic mattress covers and cash donations which are always appreciated.

The club will also be collecting plastic caps and lids for the Darke DD/Greenville Kiwanis AKtion Club. These are being used for a recycled bench to be placed on the bike path that goes behind the Darke DD Administrative offices on Jaysville-St.Johns Road.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The cost of the meal is $12.00 with dinner to start at 6:30PM. For reservations please contact Marilyn Emmons by noon on Monday, March 6th at 937/548-5824 or demmons@embarqmail.com.
