Cutshall Attends Conference

Cheryl Cutshall, Mc- Connellsburg, recently attended Modern Woodmen of America’s Merit Club Leadership conference in Orlando, Fla. Cutshall as one of approximately 430 youth service club leaders from across the United States who earned the opportunity to take part in the conference. While in Orlando, she attended educational and motivational workshop sessions, networked with other club leaders and gained new ideas for leading volunteer activities for kids.

Cutshall, a Modern Woodmen youth service club leader for 10 years, qualified for the conference because her club completed a variety of projects in 2011. These projects focused on volunteerism, patriotism, education and fun.
