Veterans Day Celebration and Reception

From time to time, the Community Relations Office receives inquiries about MC employees who serve on nonprofit and/or civic boards, or an MC employee needs information about a certain agency/civic group. It was brought to my attention that it would be a good idea if MC employee board service were kept in a centralized location and updated periodically.

Pink Bake Sale Thank You
From Friends of Serena Jourdan
(Diana Ramos, Denise Beach and Elsa Barrandey)
The Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Bake Sale was a huge success!
The bake sale was created in the memory of Maxie Jourdan Argabright (sister to Serena Jourdan) who was diagnosed at the age of 24 and lost her battle at the age of 27.
We would like to thank the bakers that took the time to bake such amazing goodies and to all of you that came out to support a good cause. There are 2.9 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today - the largest group of all cancer survivors. We hope that are small efforts will help in the continued research for a cure.
We are proud to say that our grand total is: (drum roll).......$900! Thank you for not just talking about finding the cure, but doing your part to help make it happen!
