The Mercer Island Community Fund is currently accepting grant applications with a deadline of Jan. 31, 2012.
It may be no coincidence that November is both Lung Cancer Awareness Month and COPD Awareness Month. Lung cancer and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) are two of the leading causes of death in America – and also among the most under appreciated.
The Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce membership luncheon for November begins at noon tomorrow, Nov. 3, at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center (formerly the CCMV). Mercer Island School District Superintendent Gary Plano is the speaker. To RSVP and for ticket information, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 232-3404.
