Hello Everyone – We had a wonderful visit yesterday by Amy Lacey, News Channel 8 anchor, at St. Luke’s.  She is working on a story about our Open University, the Center’s lifelong learning program.  The story will air this Friday, October 20, at 5:30 pm on Channel 8 (or your local ABC station) here in Richmond.  Hope you can catch it!

Women’s Group Update

I bet you would like to know what time the group meets tomorrow.  It is 2:30 pm.  So to repeat, the TSCOR Women’s Group will meet every 2nd Thursday of the month at First Presbyterian at 2:30 in the afternoon in Room 218.

Thanks to all of you who let me know the time was missing (oops).  I’m waiting to hear what the exact time the Men’s Group meets, but I do know it is around lunch – Julie

TSCOR Men’s and Women’s Groups

Did you know that TSCOR has both a Men’s and a Women’s Group? Well, we do! They both began just this past year and now have regular meeting times.

Our Men’s Group meets on the third Wednesday at a little lunch place called “Shore Dog” in the West End (435 N Ridge Road). Anyone interested in attending, respond by email to Jim Evans, jameslevans@yahoo.com.

Our Women’s Group meets on the second Thursday of the month at First Presbyterian Church (4602 Cary Street Road) in Room 218. There will also be “outings” scheduled in between regular meetings.  The group had lunch a couple of Fridays ago in Lakeside and will be discussing the possibility of another outing at the next meeting.  And speaking of the next meeting, it is tomorrow, October 12, where there will be a presentation by one of the members on Genealogy.  Come join us or email Julie, jadams@tscor.org.

We hope everyone interested will come give it a try!

Yoga Class

We are sorry to announce that we were unsuccessful in finding another instructor for our Yoga class scheduled to meet at 11 am on Thursdays at First Presbyterian Church.  We will continue to search and hopefully will find an instructor for the winter session.  If you have any suggestions, please let us know.  Again, so sorry and thank you for your understanding.

For Your Information

Hello Everyone!

I attended the Shepherd’s Center National Regional meeting yesterday in Northern Virginia.  Did you know that we were a part of a national network of Shepherd’s Centers?  I have realized that this is something we need to talk about more!  We are one of 56 Shepherd’s Centers in the United States.  Yesterday, the Centers in Virginia and West Virginia made up the attendance.  It was a wonderful time of “answering burning questions,” sharing best practices and offering support.  To find out more about our national network, go to the Shepherd’s Centers of America website. Take care – Julie

Small Correction to the Tiny OU Schedule Change

Next Monday is September 25th, not the 27th.  Please forgive the error in the earlier post.  To repeat correctly,

Next Monday, September 25th, at St. Luke Lutheran Church (7757 Chippenham Parkway), Professor Evie Terrono will present her very timely topic, “Mansions and Monuments and Southern Identity in Richmond.”

Because of a conflict beyond her control, Prof. Terrono will begin her talk at 12:45, instead of our accustomed 12:30.  That’s a little extra time to learn more about The Shepherd’s Center and to get to know one another (and maybe even have a second piece of cake!)  See you then.  Bring a friend!

Have a great weekend – Julie

A Tiny OU Schedule Change

The Shepherd’s Center looks forward to welcoming to St. Luke on Monday, the 27th, Professor Evie Terrono, professor of art history at Randolph-Macon College.  Her very timely topic is “Mansions and Monuments and Southern Identity in Richmond.”

Because of a conflict beyond her control, Prof. Terrono will begin her talk at 12:45, instead of our accustomed 12:30.  That’s a little extra time to learn more about the Shepherd’s Center and to get to know one another (and maybe even have a second piece of cake!)  See you then.  Bring a friend!

Thursday’s Open University Note

You may have seen Mary Lynn Bayliss interviewed on Channel 6 the other morning about her presentation on the Dooleys.  We heard that they listed the location as 3111 Northside Avenue, which is where our administrative office is located.  Mary Lynn Bayliss will be speaking Thursday, September 21 at First Presbyterian Church located at 4602 Cary Street Road.  Thank you Cheryl Miller at WTVR for changing the reference online!
