Weight loss surgery may be an option for adults with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious health problems related to obesity. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding may be an option for people with a BMI of 30 or more who have at least one serious obesity-related health problem. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like any surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.

Our fashion story this month focuses on the talented people that are behind the boutiques that will be tempting us all year long. Hear what they have to say with some valuable fashion advice that will have you thinking, “wear now and wear later.” By Augusta Campbell Photography by McKendree Walker

- Cindy Gambrell Kittie Kyle in Laurelwood

Chambray shirt dress Kittie Kyle

"The fine wale corduroys in a pretty light blue look great now with all of your favorite summery colors. They will really look modern as we transition into Fall worn with richer hues that are a little uncommon but look really good, like mustard or berry."

- Priscilla Willis Oak Hall

"Animal print is making another round in the Fall and this time, we are seeing lots of python. These jeans would be perfect for now with a rocker t-shirt or spaghetti tank top. I would wear it later with a nice silky blouse layered with a motorcycle jacket and pointy platform boots."

- Lori James Lori James Boutique in Laurelwood Giraffe print top and midi skirt Kittie Kyle

Sleeveless V-neck Lori James

"This outfit is actually separates and can be worn as shown for Summer. Later in the year, I would put a beautiful hand knit sweater with this skirt. Something off the shoulder would feel very contemporary and a little longer so it could be belted."

- Cindy Gambrell Kittie Kyle in Laurelwood

"This dress has beautiful colors and ease that makes it right for Summer with sandals, slides, or even sneakers. For Fall, adding a turtleneck underneath, belting it, and wearing it with tights and boots would be so chic."

ORION FEDERAL CREDIT UNION

Shining

Brightly

in the

EDGE DISTRICT

By S A N D I B U T L E R H U G H E S Photography by C R E AT I O N S T U D I O S

When Orion Federal Credit Union began the search to relocate their corporate headquarters, it was about more than just a new facility - it was also about supporting the Memphis community. After exploring and assessing options citywide, they decided on the former Wonder Bread bakery building, and with this move, they became an anchor tenant in what might have been a forgotten, deserted area of the city core. "When considering a new location for our headquarters, we saw an opportunity to benefit Memphis and the communities we serve," said Daniel Weickenand, CEO of Orion. When viewed from above, the Edge appears as a large “X,” tucked into a sliver between the Medical District and Downtown Memphis. It is marked at one end by Sun Studios, punctuated by a metallic blue “awning” of sorts extending over Marshall and Monroe, crossing over Danny Thomas, and dead ending into AutoZone Park. The area has experienced growth with the Trolley Stop Market and High Cotton Brewery, but overall, the Edge was languishing in abandoned buildings. Orion's decision to move to the Wonder Bread factory was an intentional effort by the Orion Board of Directors and executive team to address long-term blight and drive economic development in Downtown and Memphis as a whole. "A strong city core can create a ripple effect for development and energy throughout the region. We're proud to be a part of that with this move,” Weickenand said. The Orion headquarters move is a powerful catalyst for development in the Edge. Since announcing its plan to be the cornerstone corporate tenant in 2017, several companies and developments have also announced expansion plans in the area. A new apartment complex is under construction with 286 units, and according to the Downtown Memphis Commission, 155,000 square feet of retail, office, and mixed-use space are spread throughout the Edge Redevelopment. "We see Orion's move into Downtown Memphis as more than an obvious sign of their commitment to our city. We also see it as a signal to others that Orion this progressive, forward-thinking enterprise - sees real value in being in the Edge neighborhood of Downtown. Orion isn't just excited about the changes happening in our core city, they are helping to create them," said Jennifer Oswalt, President and CEO, Downtown Memphis Commission.

JULY 2019

The Wonder Bread building was built in 1921, and has been vacant since 2013. It is in a high-traffic area, with much visibility from tourists visiting Sun Studios. The “Wonder Bread” sign atop the building has been iconic in this area of Downtown, so the decision was made to pay homage to the history of the structure by keeping the sign in place and restoring it with updated lighting. Orion chose to keep the original shape and bones of the building and add a third story. A new exterior façade has been installed and is made of reclaimed bricks from the original structure, giving it the look of the period factory but with secure and modern specs. The third floor addition offers the 150+ employees a break room and rooftop deck with sweeping views of Downtown. While the new office space is modern, with open and collaborative spaces, the bakery days still are a part of design including a huge flour shoot that was salvaged and converted into a light fixture. The historic "Cadillac Building,” adjacent to the Orion headquarters at the corner of Danny Thomas and Monroe, will also be preserved. Renovations for the building are planned in the future, including the empty lot area that serves as the entry into the Edge District. The Wonder Bread factory conversion is the second commercial development Orion has selected specifically to address blight and based on its commitment to impact the community. In 2017, a LEED Silver Certified branch was completed across from Le Bonheur Children's Hospital on an abandoned brownfield site that was once a gas station. Weickenand stated, “We wanted to go beyond reactivating a dead street corner. We wanted to build something that members and the neighborhood would be proud of, and even more, would reflect the change and evolution going on in the area. We’re proud to reside in the Medical District and even our footprint is positively impacting this neighborhood.” Orion has been a dedicated local partner for more than 60 years, with more than 72,000 members and $900 million in assets. Over the past several years, Orion has supported well over 100 non-profits in the Memphis area and has given more than $2 million in community support. A core belief in community has driven the company to pay that support forward and invest in a better Memphis. "It's a win for our city when large or small companies and nonprofits make business decisions based on corporate social responsibility to our city and our community,” Weickenand said. “We felt it was important to evaluate the return on investment to Memphis and our membership. Memphis is our home, and we want to see it grow, develop, and evolve."

Preview Party on the Terrace

Orion Federal Credit Union opened the doors of their fabulous new headquarters in the former Wonder Bread factory in the Edge District for a preview party in early June. The party was held on the 3rd floor terrace, and guests enjoyed touring the renovated building, views of the downtown skyline, and a beautiful sunset. Photography by Mckendree Walker. orionfcu.com

Orion is a not-for-profit financial institution and also a community partner, believing that communities work best when they work together.

#GALLERY

You’re at the beach, on your way to the beach, or just back from the beach and all the business associates, fellow club members, volunteers, and others you are trying to meet with to plan something are in one of those same three situations. Only a week off. So for all your good intentions, you are thwarted in trying to accomplish much in July. Calm down and just enjoy yourself. If you are not at the beach in July, there’s plenty to do in Memphis – art, theater,

music, film. From Brazilian folk music in the Green Room to drum and bugle corps at the Liberty Bowl, from Mamma Mia! in Hernando to kids creating opera in East Memphis, new and ongoing art shows to Willy Bearden on Kurt Vonnegut – seriously, have you seen such variety lately? GO have fun! But don’t forget to wear sunscreen. - Ken Hall

CARNES GARDEN By: Breeland Myers & Caroline Erb

This month a few of our staff members had the opportunity to visit Carnes Garden in assistance with Neighborhood Preservation Incorporated. The goal of Carnes Garden, developed in 2013, is to rebuild the city by giving people an opportunity to beautify Memphis. Mary Baker, a devoted employee of the Neighborhood Preservation Center and city planter, explains “we had a mission to not only take up an old blighted, abandoned, beat up lot, and turn it into something beautiful for the neighborhood, but we also had the mission of bringing people to the neighborhood from the outside.” The gardens are filled with native trees and flowers to attract butterflies and a variety of bees. It offers an environmental edge to the community along with uniting neighbors.

A mural painted in the middle of the garden.

The Impact staff worked alongside Mary Baker to eliminate any weeds such as blight, crab grass, and bermuda surrounding the plants. After this step, the staff had to cover these weed infested beds with cardboard. Deprived of light, the weeds were permanently removed. Following the cardboard, mulch was layered to beautify the garden. This service project enabled the staff to have hands-on experience with people in our community that are passionate about creating a better Memphis. Environmental influence became apparent as we saw the transformation of the garden. If gardening is something you enjoy doing, they have 5 gardens around Memphis that they work on and need volunteers on weekends. A great way to volunteer is through Clean Memphis or Memphis City Beautiful.

SWEET LALA’S BAKERY By: Sydney Graeter

Bakery Owner, Lauren Young, helping a child with his icing.

Lauren Young is on a mission to “make life sweeter” for the citizens of Memphis with her new bakery, Sweet LaLa’s. Lauren has had a passion for baking since she was young, and it has only continued to grow over the years. Her original cookie recipe was given to her by a friend, and from that, she created two other flavors to start a small at-home business in 2001. While baking from home, Lauren worked for a board that helped with kids coming out of Juvenile court and was introduced to the work of the nonprofit company, JIFF. She moved her bakery to the JIFF facility to teach the kids coming out of the program how to bake, hoping to give them skills for a possible future job. Lauren gave many of the kids their first

Fresh cookies preparing to be frosted.

A reminder to make life sweet on the wall of the bakery.

jobs and started her company in 2014 in partnership with JIFF. From here, Lauren decided to partner with many social enterprises such as Thistle and Bee and My Cup of Tea, to support them by selling their products to show that working with a purpose pays off. These partnerships led to the rebranding of her company, “Make Life Sweeter.” Lauren opened her bakery, Sweet LaLa’s, on March 21st, 2019, with hopes that it will become a local hangout in the city. The bakery not only sells cookies but many other baked goods, coffee, and local products from Memphis and the surrounding region. Sweet LaLa’s is a fantastic addition to the community and is working to “make life sweeter” in Memphis.
