Clovis BPO Does
Clovis BPO Does held an informal meeting on May 24. Following the meeting we celebrated the drove's birthday with refreshments and a Chinese gift exchange. This was a lot of fun and good fellowship.
Recent House High School graduate Jennifer Holland did a power point presentation on her recent trip to Europe as a people to people ambassador. The drove made a donation to her to help with expenses for this trip and she wanted everyone to see what she experienced as a way to thank the drove for the help. It was very informative and interesting to hear about all of the wonderful places she was able to visit along with the historical and cultural knowledge she gained by visiting several different countries.
The drove will not be meeting during the summer months. The next meeting will be in September.
