April 21, 2013:
This week, the core group met at the St Cloud Great River Regional Library to further plan the Community Immunization Campaign Kick-off public event for May 9, 2013 at the Atwood Ballroom, 5:00-7:30 PM, on the campus of St Cloud State University. The SCSU Health Service leaders have been very helpful in our planning and preparations. We are in the process of developing volunteer commitment sheets to be filled out by anyone looking to volunteer from among attendees May 9th. We are also drafting medical personnel to serve as conversation facilitators at each of the tables at the Kick-off ceremony. Please call Stearns-Benton Medical Society if you are interested at 320-252-8550. Our next meeting of the core group will be Thursday, May 2, 2013, at 12:00 Noon, at the St Cloud Library. We hope to have a “dress rehearsal” for the meeting format, content and the video presentation finale ready for discussion and approval. Also, Kirk Lamb has finished details of several second generation “Got Mine!” posters and they are beautiful. We hope to have about 30 of these mounted for display at the Kick-off celebration and to include in the video. Kirk has also agreed to design the image to use on lapel buttons the also say, “Got Mine” and show a Band-aided arm either male or female. We hope to have these ready to wear by the May 2 meeting and will give them out at the Kick-off. I will post some of the second-generation poster images in a separate posting.
