New Logo Coming Soon!

This year marks our 5th anniversary and cause for an updated logo to celebrate the occasion.  A lot has happened in the last five years and we’re excited to now be officially forming our own non-profit to provide a more organized means of support for our community and the agencies that we serve.

ANYONE can submit a logo design, but only active members will be allowed to vote for the winning design.

unveil-event-curtainWhat we are looking for:
We want an update to the face and map of Missouri. The only requirement is that ‘Queen City Beard & Moustache’ is red & ‘Federation’ is black.  We would also like to see the word Federation horizontally rather than vertically.

The new logo will debut at the competition on May 3.  Artists can email their submissions to queencitybeards@gmail.com now through April 9, 2014 or bring the artwork to the meeting.  The meeting will be held at Patton Alley Pub, 313 S. Patton, Springfield, MO, beginning at 6pm immediately following a pre-meeting at 319 Event Center at 5pm.  Voting will take place at the end of the meeting.

The winning artist will be honored at the competition on May 3 and is encouraged to be present for recognition.  All artist submissions will be highlighted on our website and we reserve the right to use the submitted art as necessary.

Good luck to all the creative minds and we look forward to seeing the designs!

April showers bring May flowers, and frizzy beards…

Hello everyone, what an exciting month April was. The competition was great and we had a lot of fun. Sorry this email is coming a few days late, gotta love technical issues haha. So let’s get down to business and get all you beardos updated on for our next meeting.

First off is wrapping up on the competition. We had a great turn out and a great time.Will be sending out a finalized category list of the winners in a follow up post and email soon as we have  the info for  it.  Haven of the Ozarks and Wounded Warriors are such amazing charities and we are so glad we got to raise money for such great causes. We will have an official tally soon also in the follow up. We have already started on brain storming for next years competition…bigger and better than ever (just like our beards right? ;p)

We also will be talking about  new bylaws the board wants to apply to our wonderful group. These bylaws will help out a lot with being an active member. More will be explained at our meeting.

Also we will be having  4 speakers coming in to talk with us about their organizations that will be new for us to volunteer with or old friends we have volunteered with in the past. The speakers will be John from Haven of the Ozarks, Jennifer from Ozarks Food Harvest, Tommy from Habitat for Humanity, and Christine from Cross Lines. Hope to hear more great things about these organizations and what they do for our community. 🙂
