The Community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking, and conversation) that began last year was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise from Mount Union’s faculty and staff that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.

The sessions are open to the public and run from noon until 1 p.m. during the third Tuesday of the months of September, October, November, February, March and April. The cost for the lunch is $9 and will be served in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. Sessions will be chaired by Doug Schwarz vice president of Alliance Ventures and executive director of the Greater Alliance Foundation, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Harry Paidas, vice president for public affairs and marketing.
