CCN Again Sponsors Charity 5K Race for Clean Water

At the First Friday Book Synopsis at the Park City Club this week, we are Running4CleanWaterLogo2017again sponsoring a great charity cause:  Running 4 Clean Water.
 
Creative Communication Network again is a sponsor of this race to build wells in Sierra Leone, Africa, where more than 9,000 people a day die due to lack of access to fresh water.  Last year, we donated over $1,900 to this cause.
 
The CCN running team brought home four medals, including three first-place finishes in their age category.
 
This is our charity focus for the April FFBS.   Donations will be solicited and accepted.  A donation card will be at each person’s place at your table. 
 
If you cannot attend the FFBS, and if you will agree to donate, please send an e-Mail to Karl J. Krayer at .
 
We are also interested in runners who will race under CCN sponsorship on April 29.  For information, send an e-Mail to Karl J. Krayer at .

Save the Date! CCN to Sponsor Domestic Violence Workshop on October 21

Save the date!

I am excited to announce that Creative Communication Network will sponsor a half-day workshop on Domestic Violence this fall.  The exact date is Friday, October 21, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:45 a.m.  This is purple shirt day.  We will meet at First United Methodist Church in Garland, Texas.

The exact title is “The State of Affairs in Domestic Violence.”  I will be the host and moderator for the session, which features expert speakers on a variety of topics.

This is also the charity recipient for the First Friday Book Synopsis at the Park City Club in Dallas on Friday, October 7.  We will collect donations to the New Beginning Center, which is an agency in Garland that supports victims of domestic violence.

The conference is targeted for these purposes:

  • Leave informed – You will hear trends, updates, problems, progress, and opportunities.
  • Consider for yourself – Are we winning the war against Domestic Violence?
  • Hear from expert speakers who are involved in a variety of interventions.

The program is as follows:

Corporate Interventions in Domestic Violence – Kathryn Klepak, Director of Human Resources – City of Garland

Community Responses to Domestic Violence – Erin Kincaid, Manager of Community Education, New Beginning Center

Educational and Faith-Based Interventions in Domestic Violence – Monique Herrera, Community Educator, New Beginning Center

Law Enforcement Interventions in Domestic Violence – Wayne Sherriff, Detective for Domestic Investigations and Sex Crimes – City of Garland

Victim Interventions – “Four Ways it Ends With You” – Carmen Coreas, Creative Communication Network

We will also end with a forum discussion, where participants can ask questions of the speakers.

Stay tuned!  Registration information will be available shortly on a variety of web sites.
