Birthday Greetings 2018


Our birthday greeting project is a fundraiser which enables members to send an adorable animated birthday email greeting to a friend for a donation of $1.00 per greeting and help the chapter raise money for Sustaining the Mind. One Greeting is sent with all the names listed. It is completely voluntary. No information is taken from registration forms. Members who wish to participate send an email with month and day of their birthday to the birthday greeting chair-person. A master list is compiled and quarterly a list is sent to the entire membership of the birthday ladies for the coming 3 months. Friends then circle the names on the list and send in a check made out to BNC for $1.00 per name. At the beginning of each month each birthday “girl” gets an adorable animated email greeting card listing all those who have wished them a happy birthday.

In the 3 years the program has been in operation over $4500 has been raised to support Sustaining the Mind at absolutely no cost to the chapter.To be included for 2018, email your month and date to Cathy

Tutoring Opportunities Sponsored by the JCA
As in previous years, volunteers in JCA’s Intergenerational Tutoring Program will meet with a student in pre-K through high school classes to assist the student in a particular subject, such as reading or math.

This year, JCA is offering a Job/Career Readiness Mentoring Program. Volunteers in this new program will work one-on-one with a high school student for four to six one-hour sessions to discuss topics such as resume building, goal planning, job searches and college applications.
You will be required to complete an application and participate in a training session in order to be considered for one of JCA’s programs. Because the programs fill up quickly, you should submit an application to the JCA as soon as possible. If you need an application or if you have any questions about the JCA programs, please contact Barbara E.

We will provide information about our CourtWatch and A Wider Circle programs in future Bulletins or Blasts.
