Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday!!
And, there are some informative offerings the next two Mondays at the Open University! Just in time for spring, come to St. Luke at 11 am this Monday, May 13, and find out about Container Gardening with Marlene Scott and then next week, on May 20, Wild Edible Plants with Allison Meehan. We hope you can join us!
Today is Prime Day! Amazon donates to The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond when you shop Prime Day deals through Amazon Smile. Click HERE to start shopping and pass a bit on to us, at no cost to you!! Prime Day starts today at 3pm and runs throughout the day on July 17.
We appreciate your support! Thanks so much – Julie
What will you be like in your 80s? Living independently, robust in body and mind, with a wide social circle? Manage that and you will be a “Superager.” BBC News aired a very interesting story on this subject over the weekend – see it HERE.
Another term I saw on an admission sign, when I was in Scotland a few years ago, was “Super Adult.” I love these terms coming from across the pond. They remind me of the people involved in The Shepherd’s Center. I am always saying how our volunteers, students and members astound me with how active and engaged they are. Many could run circles around me!
I hope that you will make a New Year’s resolution to get involved with our organization by attending the Open University (starting January 15), volunteering in a variety of capacities, or supporting us by becoming a member (only $25 a year!). If you are already involved – Yay! Please help us by telling everyone you know in Richmond about TSCOR and invite them to give us a try. Your personal endorsements do more than any kind of advertisement – talk us up! Thank you so much, and here’s to all you “Super Adults” and “Superagers!!” – Julie
Do you shop on Amazon? Have you heard of AmazonSmile? It’s a program offered by Amazon that enables you to donate to your favorite charity every time you shop – with no cost to you! It’s easy to do.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you will be asked to select a charitable organization to receive donations (they will remember your selection). Then you simply go to smile.amazon.com when you want to shop Amazon.
Please select The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond as your charity this holiday season. Every little bit helps! Thanks – Julie
