Southwest Idaho 2018 Calendar of Events


















January 15, 2018 TVW BUSINESS MEETING JANUARY 15
The Sunrise Cafe in Middleton has been reserved for our TVW Whips business meeting on Monday, January 15, at 1 pm.
Please note the day and time change. This is the Martin Luther King Day holiday, so Robin and Merry Jo don't have school.
We hope that the change will allow people who don't like to drive at night and those that usually work to attend.
We will be having our annual elections and planning out our activities for 2018, so we need everyone's input.
At our last business meeting in November, we only had 4 people attend, and we didn't have a quorum. We had 10 people attend the Christmas party at Merry Jo's house in December.
This is your chance to weigh in on this year's plans! We hope to see many of you there!
If you would like to add items to the meeting agenda, email Merry Jo. merryjoetp@gmail.com.
