Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center was recently approved for the placement of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) from the Iowa Heart Foundation. The Iowa Heart Foundation program awards AEDs to businesses and organizations in an effort to increase survival rates in Iowa related to Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) strikes more than 350,000 Americans each year, which equals about one death every two minutes. With early treatment of CPR and an AED, those who suffer SCA nearly double their chance of survival. For each minute without such treatment, the chance of survival decreases by 7-10 percent.

  • Learn how to create and maintain everything from terrariums, glass dish container gardens, miniature gardens and hypertufa troughs.
  •  Forget about the bad PR you've heard about storm cleanup and leaf raking - trees are the unsung heroes of our world. We'll look at their best landscape uses - and highlight some great candidates for your yard.
  • The Wallace Centers of Iowa provide a variety of programs and services to build awareness of local food, sustainable agriculture, and civility at two locations: the Wallace House in Des Moines and the Henry A. Wallace Country Life Center in rural Orient. We’ll hear from farm manager Mosa Shayan as he introduces composting, how to do it on a small or large scale, and how it benefi ts perennials such as herbs. WCI’s Chef Katie Routh uses fruits and vegetables from the WCI gardens and locally sources grains, cheeses and meats to prepare dinners with a French flair to give guests a unique country dining experience. She will share her favorite herbs and tips about using these to add flavor and nutrients to any meal.
