One component of the "get to know m.e." campaign will involve our collective group of sponsors spearheading various community-improvement initiatives throughout the Metro-East. If you have ideas on how this campaign can help the Metro-East as a whole, either through a community-wide event, public awareness efforts or through a project, we want to hear from you. For now, this page will sit and wait while we get our ideas collected for our first project.
