LOP classes are routinely held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. But the regular classes were brought together on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013 when the Latino Outreach Program hosted its Annual Information Night for its students and their families. In an effort to meet the needs of our students, LOP invited representatives from different organizations to offer advice and information on immigration issues, emergency assistance, available health programs (nutrition, pregnancy and mental health programs) and GED programs in the community.
On Sunday, April 21, Dawson's Market partnered with the Mansfield Kaseman Health Clinic to create a healthy community. Dawson's was a festive place to be as the local town grocer celebrated Earth Day with live music, an outdoor barbeque and children's crafts. As part of an active community outreach program, the store, which is dedicated to healthy living, opened its doors to the Kaseman Clinic. Clinic staff and volunteers were on hand all day to bag groceries and inform shoppers about the Clinic which is a block away from Dawson's.
On Saturday, April 20, the National Philharmonic Singers took the stage once more at Christ Episcopal Church for a concert to benefit Community Ministries of Rockville. A lovely evening was had by all as the Singers led by Stan Engebretson and Victoria Gau presented Gloriana! Music from America and the British Isles. One feature of Gloriana was "Choral Dances" which was composed for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June of 1953 and was performed at the Royal Opera House. The Singers also performed the Coronation Anthem No.
Calling all volunteers! It is that time again for the Taste of Rockville. Bring a friend or two and enjoy Hometown Holidays and volunteer a few hours at our ticket booth. CMR and the Rockville Chamber are once again organizing the Taste of Rockville and are responsible for selling tickets for the food booths. We need to staff two ticket booths on Saturday, May 25th and Sunday, May 26th.
Time slots for volunteers are as follows for both days:
CMR's 45 years of service was acknowledged by Montgomery County on March 12, 2013 when Councilmember Nancy Floreen presented CMR Executive Director Agnes Saenz, CMR Executive Director Emeritus Rev. Mansfield Kaseman and CMR Board Member Bob Dorsey with a Proclamation recognizing the services provided by our programs and the 56,625 residents served. It was a proud moment for CMR. The Proclamation is hanging in our main office on Grandin Avenue as a reminder of what we do every day.
The Clinic's youngest donor Jazmin accompanied by Mr. Gummie Bear donated her wooden nickels to the Mansfield Kaseman Health Clinic. The Clinic has been selected by Whole Foods as a beneficiary of its Nickels for Nonprofits program. For every recycled bag shoppers use, they are given a wooden nickel that they can donate to the Cliic. The donation box is located at the front of the store. Thank you Whole Foods and thank you Jazmin and Mr. Gummie Bear for your support.
