President’s Message – August 2020

Breanna Connolly, PE, M.ASCE, President ASCE AZ

Breanna Connolly

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is:

“What are you doing for others?”

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

After more than 6 months of navigating the effects of the pandemic, many people are feeling a bit worn out. It may sound counterintuitive, but often some of the frustration of feeling worn out or in a rut can be helped by finding ways to engage with and help others. Some low commitment activities to consider:

VOTE IN THE ASCE ELECTIONS – You can vote in the Arizona Section Elections HERE.

Give Blood – I recently gave blood through bloodhero.com. I was able to find a blood drive near me at a time that was convenient. The whole process took less than and hour and they also provide a free COVID 19 antibody test!

Be Counted – The US Census is taken once every 10 years. Being counted can help us to receive federal funding to pay for essential services. Visit my2020census.gov to fill out the Census questionnaire.

Register to Vote – Go to Arizona’s ServiceArizona website

  • The deadline to register to vote in the General Election is October 5, 2020
  • Early voting will start 27 DAYS BEFORE the election! Early voting can be done in person or by mail starting October 7, 2020.
  • Check the status of your voter registration or find your polling place at servicearizona.com.
  • Request a one-time or permanent mail in ballot before October 23, 2020
  • The General Election will be November 3, 2020.
  • With this election you can vote for local positions in addition to the US President.

Fun for Kids – I hear a lot of parents struggling to find new, creative ways to keep their kids safe and entertained these days. Join the ASCE Collaborate discussion on “Working and Parenting Full-Time During the Pandemic.” Ideas I think are cool:

  • Read Better Be Better
  • Watch Storytime videos by staff reading their favorite books aloud
  • Get a Family Literacy Kit and Tips to help your child become a better reader
  • Find out Where Your Water Comes From
  • Watch videos and download free activity books featuring Wayne Drop and Loo Poo
  • Go deeper with kids from K to High School with Lesson Plans for At-Home Learning
  • Take a Field Trip – Visit Arizona Falls located along the AZ Canal between 56thStreet and 58th Street to learn about hydroelectric power. Or visit Tres Rios Wetlands at the convergence for the Salt, Gila and Aqua Fria Rivers to learn about wastewater treatment while viewing birds and other wildlife that benefit from the wetlands.

Take care of yourselves and each other,

Breanna
