UPCOMING EVENTS - MARCH OF DIMES WALKAMERICA and MS WALK
We have been contacted by th March of Dimes about asssiting with the WalkAmerica
again this year.  The walk will be held on Saturday, April 24, at 9:00 a.m.  The
March of Dimes already have 47 teams signed up for hte walk and they are expecting
perhaps as many as 300 for this event.   Details will be forthcoming, but mark your
calendars now.  We will need 9-12 people to staff this event.

The MS Walk will be held on May 2nd at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana. I don't have
any more details on this yet, but the format should be much the same as last year.

I will have more information on both of these events at the April 14 meeting.


NEXT MEETING
The next monthly meeting will be held 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 14, 2004 at the
Fire Service Institute. The training topic for this meeting will be Basic
Incident Command.  This meeting is being postponed from April 7 because of
the CIARESMAG regional hospital drill.
