Hard to believe we have reached the unofficial end to summer!
We did hold our first in-person event since the beginning of COVID - at an Akron Rubber Ducks minor league baseball game! All those who made it had a great time, despite the final score.
As usual, we did slow things down a little over the summer months. But keep reading... we are kicking back into gear in September for the Fall!
9/16 - Topic: Standing-up COVID Vaccination Clinic
9/24 - Virtual Job Fair
Save the Date for our (virtual) Annual Planning meeting on Sat, October 16 (9a to Noon-ish). Strongly recommended for volunteers; all are welcome!
Check out our website event page for current information and registration.
Be on the lookout for the Governance Board ballot - voting will occur in Sept!
If there is anything we can do to make our Chapter even better, please reach out. We would love to hear from you!
