Thanks for stopping by the website of the

Anderson Betterment Club

of Anderson, MO, USA.

A big “Thank You” to everyone who came out to hear Jan Simon with the Missouri Community Betterment Organization. We had a great group of people with a good cross section of business, school & community leaders coming together to learn better ways to make Anderson a better place to live, work & play! Excitement is building for some of the ideas that were shared at the meeting. Watch for some of those to take shape in the coming months. For more information on the MCB, visit their website at www.mocommunitybetterment.com.

Our next regular ABC meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 11th at noon at Anderson City Hall. We’ll be discussing some of the ideas from the meeting with the MCB as well as our other projects. Hope to see you there!
