The Van Buren County Board of Realtors recently gathered for its annual Christmas Party.
Realtor members voted to make a monetary donation to the Dove House, a shelter for woman and children who are victims of domestic violance. The shelter closed in 2012 and is trying to raise enough money to reopen its doors. Accepting the $775 donation at the party were shelter director Pam Cullum and Friendship Baptist Pastor David Holcomb.
The guest speaker at the party was Carol Raines of Boston Mountain Rural Health.
