General Chapter Information

The Van Buren County Chapter of MARSP has approximately 270 members and is located in southwest Michigan. There are usually about 35-45 members at a meeting.

We give two $1000 scholarships per year for prospective educators.  Food is collected at each meeting for six different county food pantries.  We also collect glasses for the Lions Club and items for Blue Star Mothers to be included in packages for service persons. In October we sign Christmas cards for their packages.

Our June meeting is a pot luck;  also bring-a-friend meeting.  At the end of  each meeting we have a prize drawing where members help supply items, as well as the chapter.  Everyone enjoys them.  We are always looking for new ideas and new members.
