March Monthly Meetup Summary

Learning Topic 

The Point of No Return Analysis

Circumstances in life inevitably change, and things don't always go as planned. So, instead of panicking, not showing, or breaking your commitment, you need to recognize your Point of No Return and take action.

At this month's Meetup, members learned how to take the necessary steps to identify, avoid and prepare for reaching this point.

To help members get better at creating and keeping their promises, they performed an interactive exercise as a group with different Point of No Return scenarios.

Want to try it for yourself? Download our "Point of No Return" exercise sheets below.

Featured Promise Story

 

 

"THE BIGGEST PROMISE"

This month's promise story features a supporter who made one of the biggest commitments one can make- to get married. Despite her hesitations, the wedding was planned, the dress was bought, the invites were sent out. Watch the ending of her story to see what happens when you pass the Point of No Return!

This video is part of a series of promise stories from the lives of everyday people. We believe a video can convince people around the world to make a promise to better humanity. We believe this series, titled "A promise story," will inspire our followers to share their stories with us.

Celebrate Earth Day with Trash Cleanup Bingo

Cleaning up the community is not just about picking up trash, it’s about preventing it from happening. Cleaning up trash makes people less likely to litter there in the future. The accumulation of litter is worse after winter thaw and along waterways, a signal that this is an area where no one cares.

Join us this Earth Day as we eliminate litter from our community along the canal-way. Get while you give – play Trash BINGO and win a prize!As you pick up trash, mark your bingo card with the trash that you find! Last year during Clean-Up Akron Month, volunteers collected nearly 34,000 pounds of trash. Let’s be part of collecting even more this year!

Meet at the Mustill Store Museum along the Towpath Trail from 9: 30 AM- 12PM. Stay afterwards for the “Block to the Lock” for an Earth Day celebration with food and live music.All ages are welcome to join! Gloves and trash grabbers will be provided. Hope to see you there!
