On Dec. 11, a group of 160 Dickinson County women met in an excited and animated group to decide which local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization would get their donation of $12,000.
The meeting was short and sweet. Brief speeches were given. Questions were asked. Ballots were cast.
The decision was made. The money from this quarterly meeting is being given to the local Salvation Army.
All monies from the newly formed 100+ Women of Dickinson County stays local.
A sense of joy and empowerment surged through the group. "I can't wait for the Feb. 12 meeting." was spoken.
What an amazing thing.
