KBAC BALLOT SOCIAL
Hey Everyone! It's that time for us to get back to ACTION! We hope you were able to enjoy time with family, friends, the bed or the couch. We are so grateful for all the effort and support you have displayed, in support of our cause to "Launch Our Legacy".
In the spirit of the Election Season, we are going to have, as a portion of our meeting, a Ballot Social. Bring your ballot(if you haven't voted yet) and your voters pamphlet with you so we all can chat a bit about that one candidate or issue which you may not be sure about. Those initiatives and such can be a bit mystifying, to some, which makes sense to get another insight. 'Cause we all know that YOUR vote is YOUR vote...you have the final decision.
So join us:
