On Wednesday, November 9th, the Leadership Emanuel class met in Twin City for their last session. The group toured the Stitch-N-Print weaving facility where they weave neon ribbon for work uniforms and other clothing items. The neon material has reflective tape added to it at their main facility before final use. At their main facility, there is an embroidery department and a tape department where the reflective tape is sewn on different articles of clothing. There is also a section of their facility dedicated to military-related work orders. After the tours, the group convened at George L. Smith State Park for a class on Robert’s Rules of Order given by John Allen Bailey.
