Members of LK’s 35 classes to gather in Kokomo Depot District
KOKOMO, Ind. – Alumni for the long-running Leadership Kokomo program are invited to join in LK’s “Party on the Patio” Thursday, May 11, at the Tin Man Brewing Co. in Kokomo’s Depot District on Buckeye Street between Jackson and Jefferson streets. The party is set for 5 to 7 p.m. in the patio area adjacent to Depot Park.
Leadership Kokomo Director Carrie Giannakos said alumni from the 34 previous LK classes are encouraged to come to reconnect with fellow alumni, meet the current Leadership Kokomo class, and enjoy light appetizers with drinks available from the Tin Man. Depot Park also offers foosball, corn hole, checkers and ping pong, for those looking for some competitive fun.
“This is a perfect area to meet with friends, make some new friends, and to relax and enjoy a spring evening,” Giannakos said. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by May 8 to email@example.com .
The LK Alumni Advisory Council, spearheaded by former LK director Sharon Reed-Corbett, is working to build an active alumni group to continue the Leadership Kokomo experience for graduates. As part of that effort, Giannakos also is asking alumni to create or update their listing in the alumni section of the LK website at www.leadershipkokomo.org and to send her an email with name, employer, mailing address, cellphone number, and email address.
Leadership Kokomo is a cooperative effort of Ivy Tech Community College, the Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance, and the City of Kokomo. In a year-long program, it aims to bring together a diverse group of existing and emerging community leaders to empower them to become resourceful stewards of the community.
