Sertoma is getting in on the first year of the North Carolina Walk4Hearing. We’ll have a general Sertoma exhibit set up at the event. As part of the exhibit,
We’ll have tables and chairs set up under a tent (in case of too much sun or inclement weather).
We’ll distribute earplugs and Sertoma SAFEears educational materials.
We’ll have plenty of space to include copies of your club brochure. If you don’t have a club brochure, start working on one today! (Or join with other clubs in your city to create one . we’ll have walkers at the event from across the state.)
We could use some really good digital photos of Sertomans doing what we do . serving our communities. We’d like our exhibit to be representative of Sertoma across the state, so please share your photos today.
If you have photos or brochures that you can share, please e-mail me as soon as possible. Also, please let me know if you would like to “person” the exhibit.
Thank you in advance for joining our Sertoma team! This is a great opportunity for all Sertoma members to participate, spread the word, and raise money for two great causes.
Hope to see you at the Walk4Hearing!
