Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 27,000 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2017.

An Ohio resident has been hard at work to ensure that these proclamations are renewed annually. Linda Hoetger has spoken with local leaders to remind communities of the pain and suffering of prostate cancer. As a result, more than 400 Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

NASA Orion Social


Dear NASA Orion Social Participants:

Thank you for participating in our Orion NASA Social on December 3, 2014.  The following details will help you prepare for the day’s events!

NASA Glenn Research Center is located at 21000 Brookpark Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44135

It is important that all participants arrive and receive badges between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. the morning of December 3. Proceed from Brookpark Road to the Main Gate Guard Booths, either lane, to receive your badges to enter the lab. Once you receive your badges you will drive past the Main Gate Guard Booths to the first stop light to make a right turn to a parking location around the corner from Bldg. 3. (See the map at the bottom of this email.)  A bus will pick you up from your car and take you to our Mission Integration Center (MIC) a short distance away.  There you will receive a Social Badge and there will be coffee and some breakfast items for purchase when you arrive.

You may pack a lunch or choose to purchase a lunch from three vendors at our Cafeteria that day.  Vendors providing lunch that day are Delta Blue, Mo Bite Products and Tony’s Truck Stop.  We are also planning a stop in our Exchange Store during lunch time.  The Exchange has a small selection of drinks and snacks available, as well as NASA products, apparel and gifts.

We can never count on the weather in December in Northeast Ohio, so in case of a late start or cancellation we are planning to contact everyone via mobile text or email.  Please reply to this email with your preferred emergency contact information and method.  If we need to cancel or delay the event due to weather we will be contacting you by 6 a.m. that morning.
