Holy Moley! Where did April go? Before we know it June will be here, school will be out and everyone will be busy enjoying summer time activities! Construction always picks up this time of year too. The ground is no longer frozen and buildings can break ground or go in full force mode, only stopping for the rain. I can definitely vouch for that! I have been working on the parking garage/ green roof at St Luke’s on the Plaza for the last 1.5 years. Weeks went by
last winter when I had 5 or less people working due to the snow ice and cold. The weather broke and all the sudden I have 40+ people working: Pouring sidewalk, waterproofing, installing foam
for the green roof, backfilling dirt, landscaping plants, painting, architectural lighting, etc. We are racing to our turn over date that is scheduled for the end of June! Funny how the construction
business seems to take off this time of year!
NAWIC is no different from the construction business. Our activities will continue through the summer. Committees will be busy preparing for their events. The Golf tournament is
scheduled for June 27th. Brooke Schnurr and the Scholarship Foundation are busy working to plan all the details so they can raise money to give to students next year. Students rely on
scholarship like these to make it through college. It is important that we invest in future generations, so there are skilled people to take over when we retire!
MAGIC Camp is busy, busy, and busy!! We need high school GIRLS! Please spread the word! Tell your family, friends, coworkers, tell everybody! All the information is on our website http://www.kcnawic.org/youth-education.html
or contact Alise Martiny if you want to help or know a
young lady who would enjoy this program. This is the first ever camp for KC and we need your help with recruiting girls to make it success. A great program that will teach young ladies,
electrical, welding, carpentry and CONFIDENCE in doing something nontraditional!
Last but not least I would like to thank the CIC committee for doing such a wonderful job! Everyone I talked to loved the venue and the speaker! Colleen White was awarded the Crystal Vision Award and also has gone on and won the NATIONAL Award! Way to go
Colleen! Amazing Job Mary McNamara, Pattie Pogue, Leigh
Ann Williams, Karra McGreevy and Candice Kucharzak!
We will not have June membership meeting to promote
participation in MAGIC and the Golf Tournament. We do have
a jobsite tour planned for our July meeting. Watch for details in
the weekly email!
Happy Spring Everyone!
