ASCE YMG Tours A. Zahner Company

Last Wednesday 25 YMG professionals enjoyed visiting the office and fabrication shop of the A. Zahner Company. All were thoroughly impressed at the eccentric design and intricate details faced with every project. After the tour, the group enjoyed apps and drinks at the Cashew. This was a great opportunity for some of our YMG folks located further north in KC to join in the action. We hope to see you next time!

Raytown High School STEM in the GYM

Last Thursday, November 12th, our School Outreach Chairs organized 8 volunteers to participate at the annual STEM in the GYM in Raytown High School in Missouri. During the event, KC ASCE had over 150 students engaged through the four tables of activities. One table included KC ASCE’s bridge display, another had information about civil engineering, and two tables were dedicated to our shake table activity building towers out of starbursts. We look forward to a busy January and February with many outreach events!

November Meeting for Harvesters

Our November Monthly Meeting was held at The Granfalloon in the Plaza where the younger members donated non-perishable food items for Harvesters Community Food Bank. As part of this meeting, members brought 162 lbs of food to donate! We had over 25 members in attendance. A Harvesters representative joined us during this event to share the impact of these donations in the Kansas City community. The Community Service Chairs raffled several gifts, including a $50 gift card to Bucca di Beppo. The menu included an array of appetizers and small plates covered by the Younger Members Group. We look forward to volunteering at the Harvesters warehouse this upcoming Spring!
