5 Bros. Pizza in War is the next location to host McDowell County Community Initiatives Facebook Group Face-to-Face Networking on Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 2-4pm.
“Based upon the success of the Christmas party in Elkhorn, where everyday McDowell Countians came together to meet each other & share ideas, I’m delighted to see the Facebook Group continue to meet face-to-face, this time in War, West Virginia’s Southernmost City. I’m also more than happy to pass the baton onto Erica Lucas and Debbie King, who have gladly stepped up to take a lead role in this. One of the ideas we discussed as we broke bread together today was the possibility of using reclaimed wood to build owl roosts – what a wonderful way to honor the rich heritage and legacy of the Big Creek area!” said Nathan Acosta, lead organizer of the December 20 event at Elkhorn Inn in Eckman.
5 Bros. Pizza is located in the heart of downtown War. The event is free but the event organizers are requesting everyone to support the restaurant by purchasing food and refreshments. Guests are asked to RSVP using the official Facebook event page – search Facebook for “McDowell County Community Initatives” and click on the events tab at the top. (Or just click here).
“As a member of the Facebook Initiatives group, I want to thank everyone who came to the last event and definitely look forward to shaking hands with many of you over a slice of pizza in downtown War.”,” said Erica Lucas.
“It is indeed a pleasure to collaborate with Nathan and Erica in an attempt to pull together people, especially younger people, in the County. I am greatly impressed with their enthusiasm, dreams, and visions for McDowell County’s future. I look forward to seeing how we more seasoned veterans can connect them to various people and resources and hopefully, come up with a plan to take advantage of the many cultural, career/job-related, recreational, and educational opportunities that are here if the people are willing to work not necessarily harder, but smarter,” said Debbie King.
