Thoughts While Shaving

Thanks to all who participated in any way with the 2 recent annual fundraisers for Bladen We Care, Gala and golf tournament.  Both very successful.

Yesterday’s golf tournament consisted of over 50 teams, great weather and all appeared to have a good time.  Well run, excellent golf course, wonderful food and participants were provided with a great ‘goody bag’ .  If you missed it, need to mark calendar for next year.

Now, back to providing service to Bladen County residents.
