11th Annual Chipping in for Charity Golf Tournament to be held on Monday, October 9th

The 11th annual Chipping in for Charity golf tournament organized by the Community Involvement Committee  of the Boone County Bar Association is scheduled for next Monday, October 9, 2017 (Columbus Day – a court holiday) at AL Gustin Golf Course, 18 East Stadium Boulevard in Columbia. Net proceeds from the tournament will be donated to Mid-Missouri Legal Services. We plan to use the funds for our Veterans Law Project.

The tournament is a four-person scramble format, open to both lawyers and non-lawyers. There are various sponsorship opportunities available (some include your team(s) in the tournament!) The entry fee is $125/person and $500/team, which includes green fees, range privileges, cart, lunch, beverages (beer, soda, water), post-tournament reception at Truman’s Bar & Grill, etc.

Please note, while the registration deadline technically has passed, additional individual/team signups and sponsorship are still being accepted!

MMLS Executive Director Speaks On Importance of Meeting Veterans’ Legal Needs at Congressional Briefing

On March 10th, Mid-Missouri Legal Services’ own Executive Director, Susan Lutton, discussed how MMLS helps veterans and military families as part of a panel of experts on veteran issues at a congressional briefing in Washington, D.C. The briefing was co-hosted by Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Patty Murray (D-WA).

Through a unique partnership with the local VA hospital in Columbia, MMLS is able to provide a walk-in clinic for veterans and their families to provide assistance and resources for various legal issues. During her discussion, Ms. Lutton explained how the project provides a much needed and important service – and importance of the legal aid programs – to veterans.
