| Newport native, Monique Braley, recently attended Modern Woodmen of America’s Merit Club Leadership Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Braley was one of approximately 360 youth service club leaders from across the United States who earned the opportunity to take part in the annual conference.
The conference, which took place Thursday, July 9th through Sunday, July 12th, offered guests the opportunity to attend educational and motivational workshop sessions, network with other club leaders and gain new ideas for leading volunteer activities with children.
Braley, a Modern Woodmen youth service club leader for 15 years, qualified for the conference because her club completed a variety of projects in 2014. These projects focused on volunteerism, patriotism, education and fun. For more information on Modern Woodmen of American visit www.modern.org.
