Today, it was our pleasure to welcome back Kay McKeen as our guest speaker. Kay is the Founder and Executive Director of School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education (SCARCE). Much of her presentation deal with the issue of proper recycling: what is and is not eligible for curbside recycling. 
 
Veggie Fest held in Danada South adjacent to the Sensory Garden Playground attracted some 30,000 visitors, and provided an amazing opportunity to promote awareness of the Playground. Having a sand box at the booth proved to be a magnet for kids and their parents.  
A terrific club social outing combining "Thirsty Thursday" at the ballpark, perfect weather, and the Cougars crushing the visiting Cedar Rapids Kernels. 
Today, our guest speaker was Dr. Mark Curtis-Chavez, Provost at College of DuPage.  As Provost he is officially the college’s chief academic officer, and is responsible for overseeing the educational programs as well as student services of the college. Coincidentally, two of our vocational scholarship recipients attending COD: Mary Coffey and Cody Welton, joined us for breakfast and brought us up to date on their first year's experience at the college. 
Today, our guest speaker was John Blumberg. 
 
John believes that core values are the most untapped and impactful strategy in the hands of every leader … more precisely in their core. John’s intense focus on leadership eventually led to his belief that it is imperative for leaders to be intensely focused on core values. John is convinced that, for far too long, we have been working on everything but the right thing. He believes surface-level solutions will never deliver the natural alignment, authentic engagement and genuine service so needed in today’s marketplace. He has no doubt it is only at the intersection of personal and organizational core values that we will find long-term possibilities delivered in short order.
The annual Installation Dinner is a celebration of the past year, and an opportunity to honor those who have contributed so much to the community and to the club.
 
 
Today's speaker was our very own Mike Harvey. His topic: Cybersecurity: Current Threats and How to Protect Yourself, Your Computers, and Your Data.
