Monthly Board Meetings are to be held on the second Tuesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the Marquee Room located in the New Theatre Restaurant unless otherwise designated.

The 2018 Annual Scholarship Celebration was held on March 12th at the New Theatre Restaurant. Envelopes containing scholarship awards for sixteen students were presented to four universities at the KU, K-State, UCM, and UMKC. The annual event was held in the lobby of the New Theatre – an evening when Guild members were able to see up close and personally the wonderful and deserving young people who receive our scholarships.

Laurie Ingram, the former owner of The Independent Magazine, was the featured speaker of the evening. In her message, she described a volunteer garden of peas for presence and preparation…squashing gossip and criticism…lettuce be loyal and unselfish..turnip with new ideas and a smile.

The 2018-2019 Board of Directors were elected.
