I can’t believe the year is almost half over. Boy, is time flying in 2016. I hope everyone is getting their summer vacations and events planned. I am going along on Grandma Camp this year with my mom and her grandkids to the Wisconsin Dells. I have not been there before, and I am very excited to spend some time at a water park.
Last month, our speaker Blair did an excellent job talking about Funerals 101. Wow, did I learn a lot. Each state has laws affecting what happens to a body after death. For example, most states have unique rules about embalming, burial or cremation, scattering ashes, and how to get a death certificate. I have lived in Iowa all my life and didn’t know some of these unique laws.
Please join us this month at Maxie’s in West Des Moines to hear Dr. David Robbins from Des Moines Plastic Surgery to speak on all the available solutions for a better you. I know you are all saying that you are already perfect and don’t need any solutions or enhancements, and I agree. Dr. Robbins is Iowa’s only quadruple board certified plastic surgeon. He believes not only experience but education are important for a successful medical practice. This will be an educational night for us all.
Keep thinking about nominations for our Woman of the Year. Once a year, we celebrate the accomplishments of a special woman in our community. MWN recognizes a woman who exemplifies leadership, charity, inspiration or courage. The recipient does not have to be a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize or the CEO of a company, but simply a woman whom we as a group acknowledge for her unique contributions to our community. Nomination forms are due by August 31, 2016.
See you soon!!
Sherri Johnson, President
