May Community Events Spotlight
As you will see below, DLG attorneys and paraprofessionals enjoy being involved in the central Kentucky community and making it a better place to live.
DLG is excited to participate as a team in the Central Kentucky Heart Walk at Keeneland Racetrack on May 18, 2013. Proceeds from the walk will support the American Heart Association’s educational programs, advocacy work,
and research in central Kentucky.
DLG is also supporting the central Kentucky legal community this month. Members Laura Day DelCotto and Dean Langdon will be attending the Fayette County Bar Association’s annual Law Day luncheon on May 1, 2013, which
honors individuals for service to the legal community. Additionally, our firm is sponsoring a hole at the UK College of Law’s annual golf tournament, which will be held on May 20, 2013 at Champion Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Proceeds from the event will provide scholarships and grants that enable UK Law students to work in public interest opportunities.
Laura Day was recently selected for membership in the Leadership Kentucky class of 2012-13, which kicks off with a retreat on May 13-15. Through this program, Laura Day will join a group of fifty-five professionals from across the Commonwealth to spend a year examining issues facing Kentucky and honing her leadership skills. Laura Day will consider similar leadership issues at the 2013 Women Leading Kentucky annual conference on May 2, 2013.
Dean will be volunteering at the Taste of the Bluegrass event for God’s Pantry Food Bank on May 17, 2013. Held at Keeneland’s Keene Barn & Entertainment Center, this event will feature a “who’s who” of local
restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and beverage providers, plus live music and a silent auction. For more information, visit the event’s web site.
Paralegal Heather Purnell recently finished participating in this year’s Credit Abuse Resistance Education (“CARE”) Program with the Fayette County school system. The CARE Program is currently in its sixth
year in Fayette County, and its mission is to educate high school studentsabout managing their money and using credit responsibly as they begin their adult
lives following graduation. Heather volunteered as a speaker to these students in April. For more information about the CARE Program, contact Heather.
We hope that you’ll check back next month to see what DLG has planned for June!
