Meeting Recap

Students from The Lantern
We had the leadership team from Strongsville High Schools paper, The Lantern, visit us.  They have transitioned to be a purely online publication, and recently were able to upgrade their equipment with new computers, cameras and lights.  They will be increasing the number of video stories.
Bruce Kahn gave his bio
Bruce was born in California and raised in Los Altos. He originally planned to follow in his family footsteps and become a pharmacist.  Studying organic chemistry convinced him to switch to marketing. While at university in Pocatello Idaho he was a member of the ROTC, and subsequently the Army, where he spent three years in Germany and did a lot of running.
After the Army he got married and moved to Pittsburgh and started a career in graphics arts, eventually moved to Cleveland.  
He has two daughters and a son, and three grandchildren.  After getting divorced in 2000 he met Karen, and after some years together they decided to buy a house together in Broadview Heights.

Our speaker was Neal Klabunde talking about Hives for Heroes
Hives for Heroes matches veterans with bee keeper mentors.  Bee keeping helps veterans develop new sense of purpose, and with the year round planning, watching the bees work, and maintenance needed to keep the bees healthy and hives in shape can help instill a feeling of calm which helps with their mental health and PTSD when adjusting to civilian life.
