Field Trip to the Fire Station

Field Trip to the Fire Station

On September 12, the women of ZWIN met at Zionsville Fire Station 93. We toured the station, saw the vehicles, and even practiced CPR on dummies. (Tip: Press harder and faster than you’d expect!) Our local firefighters were excellent hosts. We thank them for their hospitality and their 24/7 service to our town.

Guest and New Members

Kathy BeMiller of Blooming Wisdom Social Media Management visited us today. We are glad you came!

Debbi presented new member Lauren Spillman with her ZWIN pin. Welcome, Lauren! She does photography for weddings, families, sports, seniors, and more.


Nikole reminded our newest members to get their personal headshots and profiles in. Email them to her and she will load them onto our website.

Carol requested help with greeters at upcoming meetings. Please contact her if you can help with registration for November or December.

Amy shared that our next meeting will be October 10 at Zionsville United Methodist Church. We will be doing a group version of speed networking. Each member will give a 30 second pitch about her services. You may also want to share what your “perfect client” would be like, and even what services you presently need. For tips on preparing your pitch, email her.

Evona reminded us all to sign up when we attend meetings so she can keep track of attendance.

Kimbra asked everyone to sign a note for Kathy Wood, who had knee surgery, and put it in the glass container she brought. Cindy will take them to Kathy after the meeting to let her know we’re wishing her well.

Debbi announced our annual ZWIN Town Luncheon to be held October 24 at the Town Hall from 11:30 to 1:00. This is an event we host for all town employees. Watch for a sign-up in your inbox, and plan to bring an item to share and to come visit with our police, firefighters, parks department, and other officials.

Debbi also brought up our December service project. She asked members to consider whom they would like us to support this year, and why. In the past, we’ve helped the Boone County Cancer support group, Project Purse, the Caring Center, the food pantry, and more. We would like to have an event similar to the past where we meet for a holiday pitch-in lunch and then do an “assembly-line” type of activity, making baskets or bags of items for those in need.

Elaine announced that the Optimist Club will have their Hit the Bricks 5K on October 5, 2019. Donate small give-away items like magnets now–you may drop them off at ZPT.

Erica C. asked everyone to help out with Girls Night Out in the Village on October 3. Wear big hair! It’s 80s theme.

The Zionsville Fire Department shared that they have CPR classes every first Saturday of the month. It’s open to all. Call their office and they will send a link for you to signup. This is a great service! They also mentioned that you can get the app Pulse Point, which will notify you if someone is in cardiac arrest within a 1/4 mile of you.

Spotlight Speakers

Alison Spoonmore of Sabbatical Solutions. She helps companies navigate change of all types. She’s developed a map called “Driving CLEAR Change” that explains her process.
