2. From Brad Nylin:
We are really moving with the construction this week, plastic up and they are trying to keep the dust to a minimum, but it feels great! We are also planning for our spring clean-up day here at Magnus this Saturday April 24th, from 9:00am – noon or so. If you can come out to help, we would greatly appreciate it. Most of the MVF Team will be here working on the grounds as well! If you haven’t been here, please come! All you need is work gloves! If you can email me to let me know that would be great, but not required.

1.   We recently met with a local company and they are considering sponsoring membership fees for their veteran employees ($50/month or $600/year will cover all of their care and services at the Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus). Our mission is to help our member patients reach their optimal level of performance: physically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually. Please contact me if you would like to learn more. I would welcome an opportunity to present to your leadership team and veterans.
