Yes that’s right, the Winter edition of our newsletter, Gray Matters, is now fresh in your mailbox. And not the mailbox you have to trudge through the snow to get to. Read all about plans for the upcoming 35th Anniversary Celebration, see what students, drivers and volunteers have been doing, and discover details for new travel plans.
Travel? Today? Absolutely not, but once you read about the spring trip you can get excited for travel the way it should be – enjoyable and preferably without icy roads.
Click here to read Gray Matters. Click here to read the travel flyer. Click here to make the roads better (sorry, we wish there was link for that). Everyone stay safe and Shepherd yourselves accordingly.
We would like to apologize for and correct the error in the credentials of our instructor, Rena Berlin. Ms. Berlin is a former Fairfax County teacher and retired director of education at the Virginia Holocaust Museum. We hope you can join us for her class, The Darkest Moment: The Holocaust, at 11:00 a.m. on Thursdays at First Presbyterian Church. To view the full Open University schedule, please click here.
Classes begin January 14th. To view the schedule click here. See you in class!
We just got a notice that through Nov 2nd (this Thursday!), AmazonSmile is donating 5% (ten times the usual amount) to The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond when you shop using TSCOR’s LINK. So click the link and shop away!!
Thanks for your support – Julie
PS – Please don’t forget the annual appeal letter that arrived in your mailbox a couple of weeks ago. Your gifts mean so much to so many!
