Progressive Chapter ABWA holds spring enrollment event

Members and guests of the Progressive Chapter American Business Woman’s Association met recently for their spring enrollment event.

Margie Murphy was the spring enrollment chairman. The luncheon and meeting were held at the Pine Bluff National Bank White Hall branch. The room was decorated with artificial spring flowers in vases. Linda Eifling, chapter president, provided brisket as the main dish. Other members brought salads, vegetables, bread and desserts.

During the business session, plans for the Business Associate Night were discussed. The event will take place on May 12. “Reaching for the Stars” will be the theme. Floretta Scott will be in charge of the decorations and Georgia LaGrave will be in charge of the programs and invitations.

Betsy Foster, scholarship chairman, reported that all applications for the chapter’s scholarships were distributed to the school districts in the Pine Bluff area.

Jan Adam, travel chairman, reported that she, Betsy Foster and Nancy Rosen enjoyed their trip to the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville very much. They stopped at a Cracker Barrel on the way home for dinner and shopping.

Adam also gave a brief history of the chapter to the group. The group also enjoyed a White Elephant Sale to help raise money for the scholarship fund.

Door prizes were won by Scott, Foster, and Louise LaGrone. LaGrone also won the Dollar Pot but donated the money back to the chapter.

Dianne Kelley and Brenda Doucey were special guests at the spring enrollment event. March is the birthday month of Laura Hopson.
