President, Eric Ralphs, introduced Bart King as our speaker. 

Bart King along with the help of his wife Megan and 7 board members have started a new Non-Profit 501C3 called We Love White County, Inc. The goal of the organization is to help White County to be a thriving community. Their mission is to transform White County Relationships. They want to work alongside all the other nonprofits in our area by providing support. The Summer Lunch Program and the Egyptian Health Department’s Recovery-Oriented System of Care are two of the programs that Bart talked about wanting to assist.

There will be a Community Block Party on May 28 from 6-8 pm on the City Lot between First-Mid Bank and The Downtown House of Prayer.

The organization is in need of volunteers and donations. They would appreciate your support. You are welcome to purchase a We Love White County, Inc. T-shirt or just send a donation. The address is 1491 County Road 1000 E, Carmi, IL 62821. Bart’s phone number is 618-387-1529 if you would like more information.
