JLCR Member: Christine Young

How long have you been with League? 
I joined in 2009

Which committee are you on this year?
External Communications Chair

What are some of your favorite things to do in the Cedar Rapids metro area?
My favorite thing is watching my kids play sports in the local area, especially soccer. For adult time I love to hang out in NewBo or Czech Village and enjoy the great food and drinks those areas have to offer. I also love to run and bike on the great CR trails.

Favorite book, and/or favorite food? 
It’s hard to narrow it down to one. I love historical fiction, but my all-time favorites are classics, especially The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and A Separate Peace by John Knowles. My favorite food is portabella mushroom burgers or fried rice. (I’m a vegetarian.)

What has been your favorite JLCR memory thus far? 
I have a lot of great memories, but my favorite is probably meeting and chatting with Bob Brooks as I carted him around the golf course when I was the Marketing & Media Chair for the Ladies Titan Tire Challenge.
