Walking Group 

Join LVCA students and tutors as we walk the trail at Riverview Park in May and June. This trail is paved and about 4 miles long (total distance to the end and back), and it is stroller-friendly. Meet us at the children's playground next to the parking lot. The address of the park is 1909 Chesapeake St,(Click for the map).

These are the dates and locations for our upcoming walks: 

Tuesday, May 17, 10:00 am, Riverview Park
Sunday, May 29, 1:30 pm, Riverview Park
Tuesday, June 14, 10 am, Riverview Park
 
Please register by texting 434-987-9010 with your name(s) and the date(s) you would like to join. You will get a reminder text the day before, which will include any last-minute changes. The walk is about two hours, but if you enjoy slower walking, or if you are bringing children, it could take a little longer.  If you need a ride, register early and add "Ride" to your texting.  Your families are welcome!  For any questions, send email to link@literacyforall.org.
 

Meditation Class for Beginners 

We are excited to announce a meditation class at LVCA this fall. The class will be offered to LVCA students, tutors and staff, and is also open to the public. It will be taught by Sam Green, Associate Professor of Nursing at UVa, and will meet on Zoom for six sessions on Mondays at 9:15 AM, beginning on September 12th. If you have been waiting for an opportunity to learn how to meditate, this would be an excellent chance. If you are already an experienced meditation practitioner, please know that your participation could be a nurturing gift to the group, so come sit with us. Save the dates, and check this page periodically for additional details and registration information.  For questions, send email to link@literacyforall.org.
