Exchange Club welcomes new members
Seven new members were inducted into the Exchange Club of Beardstown during the regular meeting on July 7. President Ann Chelette conducted the ceremony. Those inducted included: Scott Lummis, Brenda McGuire, Kim Hance, Toni Taylor, Trisha Scott, Tyler Buhlig, and Beth Davis.
Lisa Buhlig, a teacher at Beardstown Christian Academy, spoke to the Exchange members about the Back To School Fair to be held at BCA on Aug. 6 from 8 a.m. until noon. This is the tenth year for this event. Last year’s fair was somewhat limited due to remodeling being done in the gym. As compensation, this year’s promises to be a much more extravagant affair. Each child will be given a book bag and basic supplies for school. In addition, each child will be given a book to read before school starts. There will be refreshments and fun and games. The fun and games will be planned by Exchange member Kim Hance. Local beauticians will provide haircuts to children. Flyers will be distributed entitling each child to free dental service provided by Rebecca Canter at the Family Dental Center on Aug. 11. Kay Blakeman, an Exchange member, assists Lisa with this important community event.
