***Monday Evening Meeting, on ZOOM

(POSTPONED UNTIL JAN. 24) Monday, January 17, 2022, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m

PROGRAM: Jennifer E. Mammi, Business and Community Engagement Specialist, Good Will of the Valleys. “Goodwill Youth Programs: Building Tomorrow’s Workforce.”

Yes, I know we are traditionally heavily engaged in supporting their “competitor” store–the Salvation Army.  But my experience over the years is that Good Will is much more than just the thrift stores.  They do a lot with job coaching and job placement –you’ve probably seen their TV ad a million times about working with people re-entering from jail or prison.  I’ve worked with their local director at the VA Employment Office (VA Career Works) Tom Gillette for many years–he’s retired now, but his successor is Alicia Lenahan who used to be director of Piedmont CASA and is a friend.  Their job placement program also partners with WorkSource Enterprises which we all know very well.  Good Will has a Youth Program too which dovetails nicely with what Piedmont CASA and Ready Kids and Big Brothers Big Sisters are doing with teens in need. And what’s more, they said they have met recently with Salvation Army and are developing a collaboration–this is the name of the game these days (such as our budding collaboration with Blue Ridge Rotary Mountains Rotary Club).

***Luncheon Satellite Meeting–Hibachi Grill, 1185 Seminole Trail, Charlottesville, VA 22901.

Friday, January 21, 2022, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 pm. Hibachi Grill, 1185 Seminole Trail, Charlottesville, VA 22901. (next to the main post office)

** Conditions of the pandemic may force us to cancel this in-person meeting. See this page for updates.

An informal gathering for all Kiwanians and guests for fellowship and for sharing club news and to talk about ways to move projects along that will benefit children and youth. We need “champions” to step up and suggest and lead projects for us to continue making a difference in this community. We are trying out this location because of its convenience to the Seminole Trail business corridor. We think the large buffet offering will satisfy the tastes of most attendees. It is not necessary for attendees to order a meal in order to participate. The meeting day and time has been specially selected for those who cannot meet with us on Monday evenings for dinner. We are glad to see anyone and everyone.
