🔔 Let’s make the HOLIDAY a little more festive ...... 🔔

Next Sunday, December 13, 2:00 p.m. in the First Baptist church parking lot, we will have a Christmas music service led by our Praise Team. Lots of traditional carols for singing along, lots of special music by soloists and the team. It’s supposed to be nice weather. Get out of the car and sit in chairs, just not huddled in groups.

With so many things being cancelled and so few opportunities to enjoy the music of the season, COME LET US ADORE HIM.

PLEASE COME ENJOY THE MUSIC with us 🎶 🎼 🎵

AND SHARE WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. .........

A message from club President Tricia Carden.
Reasons why I choose to be a part of the James River Junior Woman’s Club......the biggest reasons for me is I love helping others, and the friendships I have made along the way !!! In years past, the club has generally awarded 1-2 scholarships of $500 to a Prince George Graduate, this year with the community’s help and participation in our events (Tinsel town, Czech fest, and the Easter basket silent auctions) we were able to award 4 - $500 scholarships to 4 very deserving scholars!!!! Especially during these times it makes me proud of each member and ALL OF YOU who participated for your help!!!! Congratulations to Madison Cleveland , Josh Hanzlik, Reese Livesay , and Glen Meza.

Our meetings start back in September, we would love to have you join us.

James River Junior Woman’s Club is joining forces with the Prince George County School System and Prince George County Police Department to host the Class of 2020 Senior Car Parade! The parade will be Saturday, June 13 at 3:00. It will leave from the high school at that time and travel down Laurel Spring Road to the School Board Office and then back to the high school. The length of the parade is quite long in order to provide for social distancing. We are asking for community support for the seniors on the day that would have been their graduation day. Cars are NOT allowed to be parked along the side of Laurel Spring Road. However, parking is allowed at Beazley Elementary School, Scott Park, the county administration buildings, and the post office. If you have family or friends who live on Laurel Spring Road, please encourage them to be spectators so the whole parade route can be lined with support! Seniors or their parents must reply to the email sent from Mr. Nelson in order to participate and the expectations for the parade are included in the email. Bring your signs and all of your bells and whistles as we support the Prince George High School Class of 2020 on Saturday!

Tales of an Educated Debutante

Dear Dr. King,

My name is Amos.
My mom said our family owes you a big thank you.
Even though you spearheaded the Civil Rights Movement to help minorities get the same opportunities as everyone else, you also helped me.
Your bravery and dedication encouraged folks to fight for those with disabilities.
You inspired advocates to speak up for me and in 1990, the American with Disabilities Act was signed into law.
I have autism and back in 1964, I would have been a six year old boy living in an institution.
I wouldn’t like that.
Instead, I get to go to public school with my brothers and sister.
I agree- separate is NOT equal- thank you for teaching people that lesson.
Thank you, Dr. King.

Love,
Amos

PUBLIC INVITED TO MEETINGS ON
INTERSTATE 95 CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENT PLAN
Learn more about initial study findings at meetings in January 2020

RICHMOND, Va. – The Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment, the Virginia Department of Transportation, and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation, under the leadership of the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB), have been studying Virginia’s 179 miles of the Interstate 95 corridor between the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in Alexandria, Virginia and the North Carolina border. The public is invited to attend the third set in a series of in-person meetings, planned for Jan. 27-30 along the corridor.

As requested in similar resolutions from both chambers of the legislature (Senate Joint Resolution 276 and House Joint Resolution 581) during the 2019 General Assembly session, the CTB has initiated a data-driven study to develop the I-95 Corridor Improvement Plan which identified key problem areas along the corridor, potential targeted solutions and areas for additional review and study.

Feedback provided by members of communities, industries, and other stakeholders are being considered as team members finalize the study and prepare a draft plan. The CTB plans to report the study’s findings to the General Assembly during the 2020 General Assembly session.

This final series of meetings will be focused on reviewing results of the study’s findings, which include development of a corridor-wide operations and arterial roadway upgrade plan for implementation. Locations requiring additional study have also been identified. The meetings will include a brief presentation followed by an open house, which will allow attendees to speak one-on-one with study team members.

A public meeting will be held at the below-listed date and time at the noted location.

The Maddie Mann Foundation for Accessible Play

The Maddie Mann Foundation for Accessible Play

Memo from Maddie's Mom:

When Maddie was little she surpassed every expectation that Drs and specialists had for her. They saw the extent of brain damage and spoke limitations only.
When she was a toddler she had the urge to pull up on you and try to sit up. Those are things that we were told she'd never do...
When she was at her best, we'd hold her feet and she'd sit straight up. The girl had abs of steel. She went from that to pushing herself up and side sitting. She went from side sitting to partial leg cross that ensued a forward bend and propelled motion that had her scooting all over our home. She would follow me all over the house. I got up enough nerve after she failed to get off of a couch by herself to teach her a safe way to slide down off of the couch. She did it well.
*I do miss her having her toys all over the floor that she's dumped and played with everywhere.

I'm mentioning all of this because she lost that ability between her 2009 spinal fusion and 2011 hip surgeries. Maddie developed a severe curve as she was going through premature puberty. It sped up the degree of the curve to the point where her specialists were concerned for her life. They were concerned it would start effecting her organs, put pressure on her lungs, and heart etc... It was devastating.
Her hip surgery was due to something common in Cerebral Palsy: subluxation of her hip. Her hip would come out of socket, but got to the point where it wouldn't go back in. It caused her extreme pain. She was put on a nerve / pain killer to exist (bedridden) until she had that surgery. Her ball was rotated, shaved down, and placed with screws and a rod. It was another tough blow for her mobility...
We had no control concerning what she lost. She had always been in physical therapy twice a week (not including what we were doing daily in home). No amount of PT gave her back what she needed to scoot or propel herself again after those. We had to accept that and do things differently. She has a one arm drive manual chair that allows her to push where she wants to go solely with her left hand.

I'm telling you all this because there is a transfer platform on Maddie's Magnificent Play Park that had it been available when she was little she could have crawled all over that unit and slid down the slide by herself. During the early construction it looked like an unfinished platform, but when completed I could see it's purpose.

I truly hope that if your wheelchair bound individual has that ability to transfer and scoot, that this piece is a blessing to you. It would have been for Maddie.


The things that she has lost has truly made us extremely grateful and more appreciative for every single day. Although, I'd love for her to still have those abilities, we are thankful that she was able to experience them. 💝 #perspective
