Monday Open University Update
Good Day Everyone!
There is the possibility of inclement weather on Monday, February 15. Monday is also Presidents’ Day and the city schools are closed, so we do not have their decision to determine whether we are closed. So this is our inclement weather plan for Monday:
We are keeping our eye on the forecast and will make a decision Sunday evening. This decision will be posted on our website. If we are closed, it will also appear on the scroll of the local television stations.
Stay warm over the next couple of days and check on your older neighbors! -Julie
OK – One last time – Dr. Bryan’s correct dates
So sorry – This is the truly correct correction!
Dr. Bryan will speak at St. Luke Lutheran on Monday, Feb. 1; at St. Mary Catholic on Wednesday, Feb. 3 and at First Presbyterian on Thursday, Feb. 11–all at 12:30. Benjamin Ross, church historian of Sixth Mt. Zion Baptist Church, will be our speaker on Feb 4th.
(Note to self – Don’t make corrections before you finish your first cup of tea! – The E.D.)
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the warmer weather while it’s here!
Open University WILL happen Thursday!
It’s time to get out of the house! Open University will meet as scheduled, Thursday, January 28, at First Presbyterian Church. When Richmond City Schools have a delayed opening, we meet as we normally do. Classes are 9:45, 11:00, 12:15 and 1:30.
We also have a change of lunch speakers at 12:30. Elizabeth Seydel Morgan, prize-winning poet and author of Spans, will be unable to speak at First Presbyterian Church on Thursday, Jan. 28. She will be rescheduled for the fall. In her place is Paul Sacra, whose topic is “”The Battle of Cedar Mountain: Stonewall Jackson’s Last Fight as an Independent Commander.”
We hope to see everyone who can make it safely!
Open University’s Lunch-n-Life Cancelled
Richmond City schools are closed again tomorrow which means that our Lunch-n-Life program at St. Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday, January 27th, is cancelled. We will be opening the office at 10:00am on Wednesday and we will keep our fingers crossed about Thursday’s Open University (OU). If Richmond City schools are closed, the OU is cancelled. If there is a delayed opening, we operate at the normal scheduled times.
We hope everyone is doing well with all this snow. Be very careful if you venture out – Julie
MLK Day and the Open University
Is everyone ready for another Open University Session!? We begin our Winter courses next Monday, January 18th. Even though the nation celebrates the life of Dr. King and many businesses are closed on Monday, the Open University WILL MEET. We are not closed for MLK day.
Therefore, we hope to see everyone at Luke Lutheran on January 18th, at St. Mary Catholic on January 20th, and at First Presbyterian on January 21st!
