Open University Begins Soon!

Have you missed the Open University this summer?? Well, you won’t have to wait much longer. Classes begin on Monday, September 23 and Thursday, September 26.

Since you might be eager for a lecture, I thought this would be a good time for you to watch a video about Dr. Elbert Cole who began the Shepherd’s Center Movement back in 1972. It’s a little, 10 minute, lecture where you will learn a bit more about our history. Some of the clips were taken from a 60 Minutes story that ran in the 70’s. Our model is a wonderful one that truly benefits those involved and I am very proud to be a part of it. Enjoy the video!

Driver Recruitment Video

have a wonderful creation to share with you.  After many months of work, we have a new video to help us recruit more volunteer drivers for our medical transportation service!  The link below is also on the Volunteer tab of the website.

I want to thank our drivers, Peter (voice over), Randy and Beth, and our clients Martha and Barbara, for making this a true TSCOR production.  They are fantastic!

Please feel free to share this with your family, friends and those that may be inclined (or need to be convinced) to volunteer.  And, if you are connected with a group, congregation or organization that would benefit from a presentation by our speaker’s bureau, please let me know.  We are really focused on driver recruitment this year.  Enjoy the video – Julie

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I was looking through some files for something entirely different from what I found and I thought it would be fun to share it with you.  We are about to start our 34th year of service to the older population of Richmond on July 1st and it is great to look back at our 30th, when the article below was written by our pal, Bill Lohmann.   Enjoy the article and remember, our volunteers, members, students and clients are why we are still here!

Article: “Shepherd’s Center to mark 30 years of helping seniors”

Happy Summer!!
