Mesa Leadership Participates in Relay for Life

Relay4Life4On Saturday April 9, the Mesa Leadership Class of 2016 participated in the Relay for Life raising over $2,000 for the American Cancer Society and had a lot of fun doing it. They were awarded a Track sign. Track signs are awarded to teams who raise more than $1,000 and are color coded so teams can move up as they raise more money each year. Some of the longer serving teams at the Relay proudly display 6 or 7 Track signs. Congratulations Class and Lyn Gorton, the class member who led the team.

Next year they plan to invite alumni to be involved so be looking for information about this very fun and worthy event in the Spring of 2017.

Alumni Give to Helen’s Hope Chest at the Annual Holiday Event

Mesa Leadership Alumni and Members of the Current Class had a blast at our Annual Holiday get-together on Thursday, December 3 at the Mesa Arts Center (MAC) in the IMG_0390beautiful Brown Sculpture Courtyard. We collected 29 gift cards worth $345 for Helen’s Hope Chest. We also raised $115 for the Scholarship Fund through our raffle activities. MAC Artist Kyllan Maney made sure we were able to express our creative side. We made Shrinky Dinks–IMG_0387google it if you are furrowing your brow in confusion. We also created a Mesa Dream Share Cloud where we shared our dreams for Mesa in the magical balloon cloud tent. All while we learned about the MAC’s Creative Catalysts initiative to get young people, especially those under 40 to get involved in leadership in their community. We enjoyed delicious food from Zappone’s Italian Bistro and grooved to the music of Guitarras Latinas. Special Thanks to the i.d.e.a. Museum, Zappone’s and the MAC for their generous donations to our raffle.
