Classics Through The Ages
James River Valley Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
We are proud of our first Classics Through The Ages student flutist Isaiah Shaw. He has continued to grow and increase his abilities with his instrument as a result as a result of our Chapter. He studies with Mary Boodell, who is the principal flutist for the Richmond Symphony Orchestra, and plays with the Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra. Isaiah is the principal flutist for the Thomas Dale High School Wind Ensemble. He is also a member of the Tri-Music Honor Society which recognizes students for their musical, academic, and leadership qualities. This summer, Isaiah plans to participate in the Governor's School for the Visual and Performing Arts at Radford University.
Isaiah recently performed a difficult solo piece for a chapter meeting to fulfill one of the requirements for this National Signature Program.
We are excited to continue to be part of Isaiah's development and look forward to his future accomplishments.
Women’s History Month – 2015
This month the James River Valley Chapter of The Links, Incorporated recognizes Women’s History Month. Chapter members are contributing new or gently used clothing and accessories to women students at Virginia Union University, and to women veterans in the Richmond community.
Every year there's a different theme for the month-long celebration in March of Women's History Month.
The 2015 theme is “Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives.” According to the National Women's History Month organizers, this theme "presents the opportunity to weave women's stories - individually and collectively - into the essential fabric of our nation's history."
Accounts of the lives individual women are critically important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do. Women’s stories, and the choices they made, encourage girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience. Knowing women's achievements challenge stereotypes and upends social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish.
