News to Know – August 23rd Edition

The ISCC met on August 23rd with representatives from Civitans, Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary, Zonta, Arlington Sister City Association and Offender Aide Restoration (OAR).  Below are just a few of the highlights that we discussed.

Sun Gazette Ads: To promote our clubs, we have partnered with Metro Diner to place ads into the Sun Gazette.  Clubs will have the opportunity to submit a short blurb about their club for a 1/4 page ad that will include the Metro Diner logo.  In September, the ad will have Save-the-Date information for the ISCC Luncheon.  THANK YOU METRO DINER FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
