misc_none 10:30 AM  -  11:30 AM EVERY HERO HAS A STORY- Magic Show with Steve Wronker! Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Julie Bartley   860-917-5158   jholzworth@plnl.org
   

Who is a Hero? Magician Steve Wronker believes there are four kinds of heroes:

1. Daily Heroes like those who serve as police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, and members of the armed forces.

2. Leader Heroes who make an impact in their field of work. This may include political figures, scientists, inventors, and exceptional athletes.

3. Unexpected Heroes who inspire us when they do the right thing to help others. Anyone can be an unexpected hero. Sometimes it only takes an act of kindness toward someone else.

4. Fictional Heroes who are created in the minds of writers to entertain and inspire us.

This 45 minute show will capture the best qualities of those 4 kind of heroes. Each piece of magic will incorporate a story line behind each hero. The magic will include comedy, lots of audience participation in the use of many volunteers, music and more! Also the finale is a very special magic presentation in honor of the men and women of our armed forces.

Program is free, open to kids of all ages and will be held in the Community Room at 10:30am. NO Registration is required for this program.

At the heart of small business marketing are the campaigns that drive action – collections of marketing activities that help a small business or organization to achieve its goals and objectives. Newsletters and Announcements have become a core component of those campaign choices. Email is more important than ever – to the communication efforts of businesses and nonprofits everywhere; and to the customer, donor, client or supporter of those organizations. This session will reveal some simple but effective best practices and considerations for the small business or nonprofit seeking to make their email newsletters more effective.

Attendees of this presentation will learn:

• The different types of newsletters

• What to write about in your newsletter or announcement and how to consider using images
