The state meeting in St. Cloud on May 4, 2019 was a success and we were present! 
A lot of fun and networking was had at the BPW state event this year.
There was purse Bingo, a seminar about fnding your inner "Grit Girl", and of course escaping
from an escape room. Some of our members even made their way out with seconds to spare!
Thanks to those in attendance for showing up and showing our BPW membership is strong!
