United Way Holds Annual Meeting


Community members joined the United Way of the Mark Twain area for its annual meeting and banquet today.

It was a celebration to honor volunteers and this year's fundraising campaign. The goal was 565,000 dollars. Campaign Chairman Ryan Rapp said with help from the community in their five county area, the United Way exceeded that.

"How times are right now we know everyone's pocket might be a little thinner but everyone really stepped up and provided the needs for the organizations that are affected by the United Way," said Rapp. 

He also said in April the organization will decide how next year's money will be distributed, and a new chairman will decide the goal.
