Mother/daughter event set

A new chapter of National Charity League is being organized locally.

The league is the oldest and largest mother-daughter volunteer organization in the nation and gives mothers and daughters unique opportunities to strengthen their bond while growing together, sharing of themselves and improving their communities.

Organizational meetings are scheduled today and Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Herzfeld Library in Benton and at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10 and 24 at Boswell Library in Bryant.

The league is the only national organization committed to fostering the mother-daughter relationship through philanthropic, leadership and cultural activities together and in peer groups.

To be eligible for membership in the new NCL Chapter, daughters must currently be in 6th-12th grades.

Those desiring to join are encouraged to bring a friend along to learn more about NCL and how to become a part of the organization.

A spokesperson said, "Together we can make a valuable impact on our daughters’ lives and our community at large."
