Happy Birth­day, B2B

McDonald County Press - - NEWS - Sub­mit­ted by Robin Kil­lion

The Nov. 9, meet­ing of the McDon­ald County Back to Ba­sics Com­mu­nity Group will be held at the New Mac Com­mu­nity Room, old High­way 71 north of the high school, in An­der­son on the sec­ond Thurs­day of the month. Potluck is at 6:30 p.m.

B2B is of­fi­cially nine years old this month, so bring any old fa­vorites you like, in­clud­ing main dishes, side dishes and desserts. Please bring your own ta­ble ser­vice (plates, uten­sils) to con­serve re­sources. Bev­er­ages will be fur­nished.

There will be no speaker this month. In­stead, back by pop­u­lar de­mand, is B2B’s ver­sion of “An­tiques Road Show.” Bring old fam­ily heir­looms for show and tell, or just some­thing you think is a neat col­lectible, and our B2B “ex­perts” will tell you what they think it is worth. Even if our ex­perts miss the mark, it will be fun for all.

The de­bate team of Mr. Davis, a McDon­ald County High School teacher, will be dis­cussing the Big Ques­tion: “Are hu­mans fun­da­men­tally dif­fer­ent from an­i­mals?”

The McDon­ald County Back to Ba­sics Com­mu­nity Group (B2B) was formed in 2008 as a grass­roots ef­fort to com­bine ed­u­ca­tion, in­for­ma­tion, com­mu­nity ser­vices and a so­cial out­let so that we can sup­port each other in good times and bad. This ac­tiv­ity is fun, free and open to all, in­clud­ing those from sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call 417-845-0170.
