INTERVIEW GUEST: Marsha Reeves Jews, CEO of the Bissell Street Group, noted Speaker, Talk Show Host and the Director of Events for the Herbert Bearman Community Art Gallery.
This Week’s Message: An event planner is, quite simply, someone who organizes an event. When we think of an event we may think of something spectacular, such as the Super Bowl, the Presidential Inauguration, New Year’s festivities in Times Square, or any of the other major events we hear about or see on television. Of course, event planners are needed for all these events. However, event planners also work on thousands of smaller events. Any time people gather together for a purpose, whether it is for a wedding, a conference, a festival, a formal dinner, or the grand opening of a new store, someone is needed to oversee all the details to ensure the event happens and that it is a success. Can you juggle many things at once without missing the details? Are you results oriented but always cautious of the bottom line? If this describes you, then you might have what it takes to become an event planner.
For over 20 years, Marsha Reeves Jews has successfully led her consulting firm, the Bissell Street Group, to international prominence in Business Development, Marketing, Trade Show Management, Awards Ceremonies Production and Events/Meetings/Conference Planning.

The most influential people in my life were my dad, a small business owner and my mother a housewife, mother, and minister of the Gospel. Life was happy and safe as I grew up during the 1960's and 1970's. Our home was full of prayer, laughter, love, and peace. Not until I stretched my wings and launched out into my own marriage, did I understand the perils of life. With the enclusion of all the challenges I experience in life, I felt compelled to write 'Pearls & Pigs; The Backslider's Journey Home", in hope to inspire, encourage, or perhaps forewarn anyone that may be walking down the same path I treaded. I admonish you to take claim of your personal value and never exchange it for anything else, no matter what.

There has been a lot of discussion of late concerning what would happen if we had any type of an event which would cause local, state or federal government to go on high alert or actually shut down all, or portions, of our city, state or naation. We have seen a rash of "training" events lately and will undoubtedly see a lot more of them. The government is preparing for...something...and even if it is just an honest preparation for some event in the forseeable future, it is nonetheless disturbing and well worth taking the time to consider what you will do when and if something such as a nationl "State of Emergency" is declared.
Join us tonight to discuss what you can do to make sure you are preparing for events such as this and thnking about how you will respond to theem.
Call in number is 347-308-8790
See you there!

Additionally,the Los Medanos College Gospel Choir”, has embarked on a mission to Celebrate and Support African American Males through the usage of the Liberal Performing Arts, as an alternative model of education for today's youth, This concepts helps youth pursue career paths that are service-oriented or related to communication and entertainment. It is our belief that one of the effective ways to support children and decrease gang violence, murder, teen pregnacy and other social problems, is to support traditional education through the passion interest point of many students, which is music and entertainment. The mission of the event is to offer assistance to African American Males through Liberal Arts Education.
