Also we have the  River Rescue Crystal Anniversary Saturday June 1st.  We did this last year and it was a lot of fun! Our new Volunteer Coordinator Mindy Moad is trying to get a head count so that we can get our group pre-registered so that we can have our canoes reserved (unless you are bringing your own). The canoes are free but tshirts do cost $12. Please let us know by this Saturday May 18th if you want to participate in this great activity and also she will get our shirt sizes taken care of too. Please either email, private message on fb or call Mindy directly (417-536-9938) . (click on image to go to the website)


Well that’s all for now friends. We will keep you informed of everything that is happening to our great group, that with every meeting seems to get a little bit bigger and stronger…just like our beards! 🙂 Hope everyone had a great mother’s day and hope to see you at some of these great events. Have a great weekend everyone!

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. 🙂


Last but not least wanted to remind everyone that we still have some competition shirts left over, on sale for $10! Get ’em while there hot!
