On Tuesday, March 22, 2016 we will hold a Spring Fashion Show at Republic First Baptist Church, 305 N Main Ave beginning at 5:30 PM. Our local shops and boutiques will be partnering with us to ensure a great evening. We will be featuring models wearing spring wear from Cato's of Republic; Country Couture Boutique and Decor; Crush Boutique; and The Closet of Republic. Hair and Make up will be provided by Karizma, Inviktus, and NeNe's Hair Salons. Tickets are being sold for $10.00 before the event and includes dinner with the fashion show. Tickets will be $12.00 at the door. Remember, our fundraising goes right back to our community. For tickets or additional details check out our Facebook page or call 417 224 0480.


For graduating seniors in Billings, Clever, and Republic, there are two scholarships available. The RBCW Tri-Community Scholarship will go to any graduating senior, based on academic achievement, financial need, character, and community service. The Billy Ray Halfacre Memorial Scholarship is for a student matriculating to College of the Ozarks, and is based on the same criteria. Students should check with their school counselors for application information and deadlines.

RBCW WOMEN EMPOWERED SCHOLARSHIP is a $500 scholarship for a non-traditional student. If you are a woman living in Billings, Clever, or Republic, returning to school after a break, or making a career change, or bettering your employment choices with education, consider applying for the RBCW Women Empowered Scholarship. To apply, contact us on Facebook for an application, or call Kathy Kelly at 732-7634 for an application to be mailed. All applications must be postmarked by March 11 to be considered.
