Daphne Bowman chosen for 2015 Community Activist Award

Daphne Bowman, owner of Willow Spring Mercantile, was honored as the 2015 ESBWM's Community Activist. Bowman runs a successful, family-owned shop featuring fine Missouri wines, goods and gift items. The shop has the states largest selection of Missouri wines, craft beers and distilled spirits, plus a bistro that serves homemade food for the lunch crowd, including catering to special dietary needs and gluten-free requests.

Bowman provides space to help local artisans. She has been a main supporter of the Downtown Excelsior Partnership and helps to organize the annual Farmer's Market. She and her husband, Jim, renovated a downtown building over several floors to combine the unique retail, wining and dining experience. They also helped to restore the Lithia #1 Spring gazebo, located adjacent to the store.

National Business Women's Week

National Business Women's Week is being celebrated Oct. 18-24. Members of the Excelsior Springs BWM annually scheduled activities to commemorate the week. This year we started early by serving dinner to families of the Strengthening Familes Program, a 14-week program that focuses on helping reduce family conflict, increase family communication skills, increase child social skills, increase positive parenting, and increase family cohesion. On Saturday, Oct. 17, the Community Activist Award was presented to Daphne Bowman. On Monday, Oct. 19, Mayor Ambrose Buckman presented a Proclamation to local members during the regular city council meeting.
