February is National Heart Disease Awareness month. In honor of raising awareness, the City of Chesapeake is lighting City Hall red from January 22, through the end of February. This is also the 10th Anniversary of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, and Chesapeake City Council is showing their support.

On a recent freezing Saturday night, the Chesapeake Conference Center was the site of the social event of the season when the Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation hosted their annual Gala. The theme was “A Night among Superheroes.” Nearly 800 of the city’s leading citizens attended attired in formal wear and superhero costumes. Hope you enjoy the photos on page 2.

Chesapeake’s Martin Luther King’s Breakfast is always a wonderful event. This year’s keynote speaker was Bishop Anne Jimenez of Va. Beach’s Rock Church. She shared a gripping story of her near death experience and amazing recovery. The annual breakfast is put on by Chesapeake’s Bishop E.W. Jackson. In my opinion, he is one of the best orators in the region, always inspiring. The event was attended by more than 400 people.

If you like sports plan now to attend the Chesapeake Sports Club Jamboree Banquet on March 21. Joe Theisman, former Washington Redskins great, will be the speaker. See the ad on the back page for more information. The Chesapeake Sports Club meets the second Monday of each month at the CCC. It’s a great club with about 300 members.

Speaking of the Sports Club, one of the founders, Buddy Bagley, is our Citizen of the Month.
