Let's meet for Brunch and then let's attend the Emergency Preparedness Fair

Join us for a dutch-treat Brunch at the Cardova Panara Bread Co. from 10:00- 11:00 and then let's drive over to the Emergency Preparedness Fair being held from 11 am - 2pm at  8150 Walnut Grove (about a 1.5 mile drive from the Cardova Panara)

Lots of really great demonstrations, classes, and exhibits are going to be available. (see below)

NOTE 1: We will also be holding a Leadership Meeting from 9:00 to 10:00 that morning, so if you are on the Leadership Team, would like to become involved, or would just like to have some input on the direction Mercury One Memphis 9.12 needs to take in the coming year, please join us. (If you can't make it to Panara on the morning of the 17th but would like to be (or stay) involved in planning, please send an email)

NOTE 2: If you have collected any coats for the Memphis Union Mission for the homeless or baby items for the Birthright of Memphis' Newborn Closet, you can bring them Sat morning and one of us will deliver  them to the charities. We will also have Birthright Baby Bottle Banks available for you to take to church or work to raise money for Birthright of Memphis.

    Pay attention, gang! This is not the Panara Brad on Poplar where we usually meet. This is the one in Cordova on Germantown Parkway. Invite your friends.

      BTW they don't have a meeting room at this Panara so look for a Mercury One Memphis table sign. We will try reserve several tables in one area.
