Saluting Our Veterans
Are you a veteran or know of someone who has served in our country's armed forces?   If so please contact Tyler Abernathy at Blythewood Middle School.  BMS is hosting a Veterans Day Celebration and recognition on November 11, from 8:30 am to 9:30am and they want all the veterans that are able, to be a part of the ceremony.   Please let Tyler know the names of those that can attend the program so those veterans can be given a proper salute!

A Souper Idea!

What do cows and chicken soup have in common?  Come on out to The Manor on November 21st, 5:30pm - 7:30pm to find out 'cause it's Souper time!
The Thanksgiving Souper, a fund raiser supporting The Women's Shelter will be hosted at the Manor as a community event to help homeless women. First brought to Blythewood by New Kirk Presbyterian Church, the Souper is growing to a community-wide effort to help women in crisis that are served by The Women's Shelter, located in Columbia. 
For a mere $2 (or a donation of more ) you can buy a bowl of Chick-fil-A chicken soup and enjoy an evening with your family and friends and The Cow, as the Thanksgiving season begins.  Take this opportunity to teach your children that this simple meal of soup and crackers is actually much more than many folks will have to eat come Thanksgiving Day.
