Leadership Bay County to team up with Good Samaritan Rescue Mission for 2011 class project

BAY CITY — Leadership Bay County class of 2011, through the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, has announced this year’s annual class project.

Leadership Bay County is a program which hopes to train it’s participants to lead the Bay County community through politics, business and non-profit organizations.

The class will be teaming with Good Samaritan Rescue Mission to recreate the outdoor courtyard area in the men’s wing of the Mission’s facility, 713 9th St., in Bay City.

“Being able to give these men a nicer area to sit and forget about all the trouble going on in their daily life is something we’re all really excited to do,” said Rebecca Kaiser, 2011 class member and chair of the marketing group for the project.

Once they begin the project, Kaiser said it is expected to take four to six weekends of work to complete.

The main fundraiser for the project will be the silent auction taking place at the annual Bay Area Chamber Annual Meeting held March 23. This year, the class also will be selling engraved bricks to pave portions of the courtyard, which can be purchased and engraved at a cost of $100 each.

“(The bricks) gives us the opportunity to give people some recognition for donating to the cause,” Kaiser said.

This year Dobson Healthcare is represented in the Leadership Bay County program via Tara Cox, Business Development Manager.
