Factual Friday Updates

It looked like it was going to be a gloomy end to the week, and then the sun came out, giving us one of the nicest days we’ve had all year. Really, it’s a sunshine-laden day to kick your gloomies to the curb! Here’s what’s cooking at JFCS this week:

-Tuesday we had a staff meeting, which is not unusual, but this time we were joined by the staff of the JCC! We got a chance to mix and mingle with our across-the-street neighbors, and listened to a great talk by Cantor Lipp about Jewish life cycles. He kept everyone’s attention with his frank and funny dialogue.

-As mentioned in an earlier blog this week, JFCS is going to be a part of the upcoming Adoption Fair: January 27. If you’re interested in expanding your family, come find out about the adoption process at this super-informative event.

-Our Employer Spotlight series is BACK! Come meet with guests from the Jefferson County Public Schools; find out what it’s like to work for JCPS, and what their hiring process is like. January 17 at 3:30. Call Andrea Goins for more information at (502) 452-6341 ext. 246.

-Next week, our free Alzheimer’s 2-part series continues with “Caregiver Resources”, January 18, at 2PM. If you’re caring for a person with Alzheimer’s or other cognitive impairment, please join us at JFCS for an expert’s insights and advice on this difficult condition. To RSVP, please contact Group Facilitator Kim Toebbe, (502) 452-6341, ext 103.

The Jewish Community Food Stamp Challenge Potluck Meeting was held at JFCS to organize the upcoming potluck (January 27, from 5-7PM) . Some Food Pantry committee members have vowed to live on $31.50 per week, which is what the average food stamp recipient gets per person. Please RSVP to Kim Toebbe, (502) 452-6341, ext 103 if you’re interested in attending the potluck.

That’s it for this week! Stay tuned, we have a Valentine’s Day workshop coming up – more details to come next week! Bonus points: identify our blog image today – where is it in the Agency?
