An Event Planning Committee “ An Event Planning Committee is needed to ensure that your night’s event runs smooth. With that being said, the Morale Building Committee has been created to ensure that the fundraising events, events schedule, and participation from all persons that they come in contact with, but we need more individuals. We need for you to lend a hand and make sure that your respected commands and organizations are aware of all the events that are planned. I will be seeking more individuals who are interested in working with myself and the rest of the organization. As a liaison between the MBC Fort Worth and the Event Planning Committee, the goal is to make sure that everyone has a good time at every event that is planned.” – David Guyette
