If you have a speaker cancel or are unable to fill an open date with a speaker, we will present a program engaging for the members. We create new programs each month, so we always have a program available that can be presented on short notice. We have presented may times to the club already, so we are familiar with the protocols and program requirements.)

Sponsor Description
Jim Bettner Tour of the Rolls-Royce/Allison Heritage Museum : (Sub: 7/24/2017) The Rolls-Royce/Allison Heritage Museum has moved to a downtown Meridian street location. The tour will consist of a brief lecture on the History of the Allison/Rolls-Royce relationship with a tour of several of the current and past history of gas turbine engine products on display in the museum.
Ken Crook Tour of Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at IU School of Medicine: (Sub: 10/30/2017) This would be a follow-up to Dr. Bruce Lamb's presentation to the Club on October 30, 2017, re current Alzheimer's disease research . The tour would involve visits to some of the research laboratories at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute, and would highlight some of the research and diagnostic tools, such as advanced imaging capabilities, to which Dr. Lamb referred in his talk. The tour could accommodate up to 40 people, who would be divided into smaller groups. The logistics of travel should be manageable since the Institute is located just north of downtown Indy at 320 West 15th Street. There is a parking garage there, and tour participants could drive there individually, but depending on the level of interest the Club may want to arrange bus transportation from the northside. There would be no cost for the tour, and lunch would not be included. The tour would likely take no longer than 1 1/2 to 2 hours, but the specifics would need to be determined by Stark.
