Thanks for taking a moment to review some of the great things going on in Stilwell!

Join the SPIRIT OF STILWELL.  Please review the following and see if you have an interest in one of our leadership committees in 2019. If any of the following are of interest, please contact me (Ken Klingensmith, President (volunteer) for the Stilwell Community Organization (ken@stilwellcommunity.org). 

Please know that our structure is that committee meetings occur as needed to accomplish objectives of the committee so agreeing to help doesn't mean you will have yet another re-occurring monthly meeting to attend.  We have a busy year ahead of us and I welcome any support you can offer in helping us achieve our goals for the upcoming year.
