March 2016

Hi All,

Happy Spring!! The weather has been fantastic in Iowa this year! I hope everyone has been able to get out and enjoy. Looks like the warmth will stick around through Easter, which is early this year at the end of March.

St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. This time every year I start my countdown to the festivities. This year I am disappointed that the city of Des Moines paid the Friendly Son’s of St. Patrick to move the annual parade to Friday March 18th. The good news is that they will donate the money to charity, but the bad news is that the tradition just won’t be the same. With the NCAA Basketball tournaments being held in Des Moines for the first time, downtown will be very busy on St. Patrick’s Day. Good luck to the Hawkeyes and Cyclones at the tournament.

Please join us on March 17th at Felix & Oscars on Merle Hay Road to hear Rachel Aukes talk about tools to reboot your life so you may thrive in a world designed to consume you. Rachel is also a bestselling author of over a dozen books and has been featured by USA Today and the Huffington Post. RSVP at

Don’t forget to get your Opportunity Grant applications turned in by March 31st. We will make the announcement of the winners at our April meeting.

See you all soon,

Sherri Johnson, President
