November 14 Education Dinner – Registration Now Open!

Local 196 is pleased to welcome Mr. Bob Layton as the guest speaker for our November 14, 2017 Education Dinner.

Mr. Layton will speak about the value of writing down the important aspects of your life so that future generations will have the benefit of your gained wisdom and experience. He will demonstrate by telling hilarious stories from his book Welcome To Radio (now on the best-sellers list at Audreys) of what happens in the background of a radio station, a very sad story about coming of age behind the microphone, and the heart-warming story about the most wonderful thing he has seen in his 47 years of broadcasting.

 

His book, Welcome To Radio! will be for sale for a $20 donation to Santas Anonymous.

Nurses Week Education Dinner – “The Joy of Caring” with Dr. Patch Adams

Local 196 proudly welcomed Dr. Patch Adams for our
Nurses Week Education Dinner.

It was a evening to remember.

Over 400 nurses from Local 196 gathered together at Fantasyland Hotel May 9, 2017 for an evening of delicious food, great company, and a guest speaker we will talk about for years! Celebrating nurses and the work we do, Dr. Patch Adams shared his extensive life’s work in a entertaining and inspiring talk: “The Joy of Caring”.  Dressed as a clown, Patch made us laugh and a few of us cry with his inspiring, worldly stories and the importance of caring for oneself. Our own Local President, Joy Arntzen, gave the audience a chuckle helping out Patch onstage in one of his ‘clowning acts’.

Check out some photos from the night!
