Greenville BPW Kicks off 2012-2013 Business Year

The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s (BPW) Club kicked off their 2012-2013 business year by holding their first meeting on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at the Brethren Retirement Center.

The Legislation Committee consisting of Chair Diana Frazier, and members Deb Smith, Opal Lease, and Miriam Knick hosted the meeting. President Jane Carroll showed excerpts from the film’ Ironed Jawed Angels’. The film depicts Alice Paul and her cohorts’ efforts to secure the right to vote for all women – nationally. The film is very moving and focuses on the American women’s suffrage movement during the 1910’s.

Discussion was held on the MainStreet Greenville’s First Friday event ‘Artisan’s Corner’. The Greenville Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) has been given the wonderful opportunity to partner with MainStreet Greenville and JAFE for the event on October 5, 2012. All local artists, creators, and craftsmen are invited to be a part of this happening. Greenville BPW is taking on this challenge as we believe in involvement with the community and making downtown Greenville a vital part of Darke County. Won’t you join us and be a part of this exciting evening? This is the chance for local artists and vendors to showcase their talent and business and be a part of downtown Greenville. Local downtown merchants will be offering their place of business to put up a display in their inside space or on the sidewalk. Contact Leigh Fletcher at 937/564-8017 or Susan Fowble at 937/548-1414 for more details.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club holds fund raisers throughout the year to raise money to grant scholarships to the young women of Darke County. The Club meets the second Thursday of every month for a dinner meeting. Those interested in learning more about the club can contact Membership Chair Gail Snyder at 937/423-4854.
