DECEMBER CHAMBER MEMBER NEWS
Lifeservers of Northern Ohio
LifeServers of Northern Ohio is pleased to announce our new sister company,
AED People, America’s Trusted AED Community. We are committed to the widespread deployment of AEDs, while being the industry leader in AED-related resources and information. The goals we’ve set for our company have arisen out of the needs our customers have presented to us over the past 10 years. Here is what we’ve noticed our customers still desire:
Education: We strive to be an unbiased educational resource for our customers. We educate them about what is available from each manufacturer, explain the key features and ultimately let them make their own decision.
Service: This is where we stand apart from other companies. We do not just sell you an AED. Our goal is that you will have an AED program in place. We offer several comprehensive AED programs powered by Plus Trac to help you do that.
Results: There are two numbers that serve as the fuel for why we do what we do: 325,000 and 40,000. 325,000 people will die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest this year alone. 40,000 lives could be saved each year if AEDs were more widely available in the United States. www.aedpeople.com; OR email@example.com.

Conrad Botzum Farmstead
For seven years The Conrad Botzum Farmstead hosted a Summer Concert Series called ‘Music at the Farmstead’. In the fall of 2010 The concert series left the Farmstead to take up a new home in Cuyahoga Valley National Park and actually became a Park program utilizing larger Park venues. The Summer Concert Series was silent during the summer of 2011. We are now beginning the planning of a new ‘Music at the Farmstead’ Summer Concert Series to begin in June of 2012. The Farmstead is actively putting together a new email (and snail mail) contact list for those folks that would like to receive concert programming and ticket information for the new series. As the old series predominately featured classical and semi classical music, the new series will feature country, blue grass and jazz. The format is casual, relaxed and very friendly. Ticket prices will not be established until the program costs have been determined. Each concert will be different, family friendly and extremely inviting and entertaining. We will provide more information as planning progresses. For now we would invite you to get on our mailing list. We will not be bombarding you with endless solicitations and daily news. We will only be sending you updates regarding the concert series, who will be coming, dates and ticket info. Please email George at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . COME BACK TO THE COUNTRY!
