*A note from Dave Cable, Director of TreesCharlotte: * Thank you very much for participating in Sunday’s community tree planting event at JW Grier Elementary. We are grateful for your strong support of TreesCharlotte. It was unfortunate the weather required us to move the event date – if you were unable to join us on Sunday we hope to see you a next spring’s Rotary-sponsored event or at another TreesCharlotte planting. We are committed to continuous improvement and would love to hear from you with any suggestions on how we can increase our impact or make your volunteer experience more rewarding. Contact me anytime with suggestions or comments. Please be on the lookout for a survey from Phil Volponi in the coming weeks about the event – your feedback is always appreciated. Thank you for the gifts of your time and talents!! I look forward to seeing you at another TreesCharlotte event. email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Thank you Chrissy Geimann with the American Heart Association for educating our club on this important health issue. There’s a lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but one area in particular where women are leading in record numbers: heart disease. It’s the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. But there’s a leadership role just waiting for women like you to pounce on: Leading the charge to end this deadly foe once and for all. *Go Red For Women* encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life. In 2010, the AHA set a strategic goal of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and strokes by 20 percent while improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent by the year 2020. https://www.goredforwomen.org/
