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 Alzheimerâ€™s or other cognitive impairment, please join us at JFCS for an expertâ€™s insights and advice on this difficult condition.Â 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?
