A huge thank you to the amazing downtown restaurant Juan More Taco on Caroline St. in Old Town Fredericksburg, VA. They were our venue this month for our Girl's Night Out. They were FABULOUS! Their food is amazing and it's followed up by exceptional customer service.
The sugar skull decor is popping as soon as you walk in. Everyone was commenting about how great the food was throughout the night. So Maria, that you! We love your place and look forward to coming back.
Did I mention they were voted Best In the Burg 2018?

Meet Chris Parker. This guy makes some of the most beautiful wood and resin items! When asked about how he got started in it, he had this to say; "I always enjoyed using a lathe in shop in school and a co worker got me interested in giving it a try again. I do this mainly as a hobby, and the sales I do keep me able to continue with the hobby. I am always looking to try new things, Whether it is on the lathe or with resin."
Chris was in the Air Force for just under 10 years before he was medically discharged. He believes it helped prepare him for life outside of home, as well as gave him the education to do his primary job.
"I have met most of my professional goals since leaving the Air Force, but I am not limiting myself to the goals I have achieved. I am hoping to continue the path I am on while taking on more responsibilities."
Thank you for your service!

This month we are pleased to announce that our charity focus will be on Gwyneth's Gift Foundation. This foundation can be found on FB: https://www.facebook.com/gwynethsgift/
Our mission is to serve as a catalyst to ensure that those suffering an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest have a greater chance of survival because they were provided with immediate life saving measures from a community member educated on how to administer CPR and utilize an AED.
Our vision is a community that is educated, confident, and capable of responding to save the life of an individual in need of CPR. Gwyneth’s Gift is a world where everyone can save a life! Through this work her spirit of caring, compassion, and community live on.
Our goals are to promote the importance of CPR and AEDs through education and public awareness campaigns; provide funding for the placement of AEDs in schools and other public facilities; offer scholarships to deserving high school students and encourage medical research and development in the areas of cardiology, neurology, and traumatic brain injury.
I encourage you to visit the website and learn more about this amazing organization and the beautiful soul that it was named after. I'm sure you heard of the recent Mom Prom held in the 'Burg? Well meet the folks that put it together! This wonderful group is doing great things in and around our area. They will be onsite with us with more information for you this month at our GNO on June 26, 2019 from 6:30 - 9:30 at Juan More Taco in F'burg.
