Club Stories
I hope everyone had a good time on Thursday night.  John and I enjoyed our time networking and learning at the Zone Institute in Erie, PA last week.  John will tell us all about that next week (October 11).
 
TODAY I am so excited to have our AED Scavenger Hunt.  We will meet at the visitor center at 6 pm this evening.  We will review how to use the app and talk about the use of AEDs before we search the community to locate them.  After we do our hunting around the area of Mt Vernon and Lisbon we will meet at Pizza Palace for dinner.  If you have not signed up yet, please check out the email that was sent regarding signing up or visit the event link in this message.
 
On Thursday we will hear from Leigh Ann Erickson regarding the White Privilege Symposium that was held at Coe College last month.
 
See you tomorrow...and Thursday!
Thank you Robert for sharing with us the program that you participated in at Coe this summer.  It was very interesting learning about how translation is used in the Cedar Rapids Area and beyond. 
 
This week we will be hearing from Margaret Stevens at the MVL Sun.  
 
Next week we will meet at Big's BBQ for a social dinner.  John and Rebecca will not be attending the dinner out.  They will be going to the Zone training in Erie, PA for the long weekend.
 
 
Thank you Margaret for educating us about the history of the MVL Sun last week!  
 
Please join us a Big's BBQ this week at 6 pm Thursday, September 27th for a social gathering of great minds!!  
 
Next week is our awesome event AED Scavenger Hunt event.  Please RSVP using our guest and member buttons on the event link.  We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday at 6 pm next week!
Thanks to One Mission for giving us the opportunity to offer our favorite shirts to more people!  Now you can order different styles and colors too!  And take a closer look at the page...if you aren't a t-shirt person, you can get a mug as well!  Note: The online shirts are a little different, mainly that the print is in all white. 
 
The added benefit for the MVL Club is that we will now receive 40% of the sales, which we can use to do great things in our community and beyond!  As always, we receive 40% of the sales through our page on One Mission for anything purchased!
