GREENVILLE – The Greenville Business and Professional Women’s Club will host its monthly dinner meeting at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Brethren’s Retirement Community’s Brick Room.
The meeting will be hosted by the Individual Development Program committee with Chair Dorothy Poeppelman and members Michelle Hook, Louisa Kennedy, Jane Carroll, Erica Menke and Kristi Strawser.
The program will include a presentation by Jodie Bohman, superintendent’s secretary at Versailles School and published author. Bohman, mother of two daughters, is speaking about her creative imagination and putting her thoughts together for her first book “And I Believe.”
This book was published in August 2014. While the story is made up, Bohman knew “way too many people who have fought cancer, are currently fighting cancer or have lost their battle with cancer and wanted to write a story about it.”
She has since written a sequel “Mattie,” which picks up 18 years where “And I Believe” left off, which should be available by December.
Bohman currently is in the works of writing her third book, “A Bottle Full of Demons,” which picks up where “Mattie” leaves off.
The BPW Club also will have available for sale Super Raffle tickets. Winners will be drawn at the Dec. 13 meeting.
The raffle is a chance to win one of five prizes: a two-night stay at the StoneHead Ridge Cabin in Brown County, Indiana (Debbie Niekamp); a Frederic Duclos Sterling Silver necklace and earrings (Wieland Jewelers); a 39-inch Element Smart TV (Your Expert Mortgage Team of John and Kristina Heath); Suds in a Bucket Cleaning/three hours (Loure Bohn); and a three-speed hand blender (KitchenAid Experience).
Super Raffle tickets are available at Merle Norman at 309 S. Broadway, Greenville, or by contacting Susan Shields at 937-548-2592, Debbie Niekamp at 419-305-2178 or any BPW member. The winner does not need to be present to win.
