LOCATION CHANGE!

Circles board President Scott Vorhees is opening up his "No Excuses Gym" tonight for Class 7 (and because of Maundy Thursday, there's no programming for Classes 1 through 6). If you've never been to Scott's gym, go south on Main street in Joplin and watch for the river of perspiration. That should lead you to the right place! Or, should you choose to find the place through more traditional means, go to 5734 South Main, 1 mile from the Mercy roundabout. The No Excuses Gym is on the right side of the road. Scott says if you go to Reding's Mill bridge, you've gone too far south. And if you do that he'll make you drop and give him 20.

Third Thursday

It's the first Third Thursday of the year so Circles of Joplin will be "circulating" among the crowd in downtown Joplin. Come by our booth with all of your questions and we'll make sure you leave knowing more about Circles than when you arrived! Sound like a good deal? Then we'll see you there! Meanwhile, back at St. Paul's, it's Budget Workshop night along with fine dining thanks to the Joplin Kiwanis Club!

Joplin Elks & JOMO Adventures Serve Breakfast for Circles

You know how your mother always said "breakfast is the most important meal of the day?" Well far be it from us to argue against Mom!

Please join us at 1802 W 26th St., Joplin, MO from 8:00-10:00 and support Circles/JOMO Adventures. The breakfast is $8 with 100% of the proceed donated to our cause. And why not treat mom to breakfast while you're at it? After all, she was the one with all the great advice!

Circles Weekly Community Meeting

IMG_29121.jpg

The annual Circles "Old Fashioned Christmas Party" was Thursday evening, December 28th at Scott Vorhees' "No Excuses" gym! Santa Vorhees gifted the Circles Leaders and Allies with the run of the place and a fantastic time was had by all! After a festive potluck dinner, the group enjoyed a white elephant gift exchange, charades, and a wild game of Pictionary (we're still not sure what Chandice Horine was drawing but some of the guesses included a porpoise and a fried egg). Everybody took a break so we could get a picture of some happy parents and children.
