Colleen spoke about how she, along with the wonderful help of Mr. Pavlov, has created/updated our local chapter website. Updates will be added on new board etc. https://www.momsforliberty.org/chapters/union-county-nc/
I (Terri) spoke about our adopted school Walter Bickett Elementary.
It was such a joy helping their teachers get a break at lunchtime during Teacher Appreciation Week. I will be getting together with their liaison before school starts back to get suggestions of things we can purchase for these teachers classrooms. I hope all M4L-UC members will help.
We were SO fortunate to have Deputy Chris Byrum UCPS SRO as our guest speaker. He received the state’s C.C.McGee School Resource Officer of the Year Award. He is a 19 year veteran of UCSO.
He spoke of how they want the safety of our children to be #1, as well as building a rapport with the kids.
Our dues cycle is now Jan-Dec. This makes it easier for everyone to remember. Dues should have been paid by now for 2023. We will now need to charge $30. We aren’t going up – national is now receiving $5/per member to help in their cost of supporting us.
OUR SCHOOLS NEED US!!

Abigail offered a thought-provoking challenge:
let’s each think of even just one thing this month that we can do as an individual, and after you do, share on the FB page.
*Go to a meeting
*speak at a BOE meeting
*write a member of congress
*let a neighbor know about M4L-UC
Membership with M4L has Associate Member and Voting Member. To become a voting member is $30/yr.
