Free CPR class for Members — Sign up by Feb. 24
KCE is offering free CPR training to members during our regular meeting on March 3. The class will be taught by Kansas City First Aid and there is no test. We’ll have a light dinner at 6:30 and training will begin at 7:00.
You must sign up to attend! E-mail Tracey Weatherly by February 24 to reserve your spot. (KCE will pay the $35 class fee as long as you show up after signing up.)
And the winner is… Ginger Snawerdt
Each year KC Express members nominate one of our own for the Phyllis Bahner Pacesetter Award, honoring a member who has made a special contribution to our club.
Ginger Snawerdt, our membership chair, updates the club roster, welcomes members and guests at nearly every meeting, and recently finished the enormous task of setting up our online membership process. Plus, she’s served on the MD5K race committee and helped with the SMH Training Team for the last 10 years. Ginger pitches in wherever needed, and she does it all with a smile. Thank you, Ginger, for your hard work – and your enthusiasm!

Go Runners! Go Royals! Go Aprons!
Our water stop for the KC Marathon morphed into a KC Royals cheering station when the World Series beckoned. Our volunteers wore their best Royals garb, topped with a crown, while passing out thousands of cups of water. See photos of all the water stop action here. Bonus: photos of our BRAG Team graduation “Apron Run” included in this link. We are really good at outfits!
March 3 : KC First Aid will teach a CPR class just for us. It’s free for KCE Members if you sign up in advance. Details: St. Joseph Medical Center, I-435 & Stateline Road, KCMO, in the Community Center (Building D) Auditorium. Socialize and light dinner at 6:30; meeting begins at 7:00.
