Senettes Journey (Stem Cell Test Site) @ The Heights Church
Jan 23 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Senette is a Prescott native, and was diagnosed with T-cell
lymphoblastic lymphoma in September and has been having to stay at
MD Anderson Hospital in Gilbert, getting chemoterapy treatments
since she was diagnosed. The subtype of cancer she has is not
responding to the chemotherapy treatments, so the next step is a Stem Cell Transplant. Currently there is not a
match in the donor system for Senette, so we need everyones help to help find her a match. Senette is always
giving back to her community. She is a volunteer for the Firefighter Angel Foundation which is a non profit
organization that supports children in her community, and she is a local Nurse when she is not being a patient
herself. Senette has a strong faith and has had the most positive attitude through her treatments. She is the type
of person who would do anything for anyone. Now its time for Senettes community and friends to be there for
her time in need and help find her a Stem Cell match. If you can’t make the drive through test site, please
register for a kit online. If you’re not a match for Senette theres a chance you might be a match for someone
else fighting for their life.
Come and Join the BE THE MATCH REGISTRY and be someone’s
hero!!

Virtual Robert Burns Supper
Jan 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

January 24, 2021 – Virtual Robert Burns Supper- 2:00 pm MST.

Join us for a virtual celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns on Facebook. There will be toasts, piping, poetry and haggis! If you are local, Uptown Pub is selling 2-ounce drams to go! To get us all drinking the same richness of peat and brininess, we’ll be selling Ardbeg An Oa vials to-go (2 ounces: i.e.: a hefty dram) for $8 each. The Ardbeg distillery on Islay is considered one of the peatiest producers of Scotch. It’s also a loamy, earthy type of peat that makes me feels like I’m standing on the island itself (especially after a few). It’s the closest distilled [email protected] that we can get at this time to where Robert Burns was born in Alloway.

We’ll also have numerous other bottles of whiskies available to-go as well. In the past, we’ve had hundreds to choose from, but 2020 put a wee hurting on our overall inventory. We’ll do our best to find you something to get in the proper spirit of things.

You can watch the Robert Burns Supper here:

FRANK Talk about Gender, Race, Class & Election 2020
Jan 25 @ 3:00 pm

Join Camp Verde Community Library online at 3:00 pm on Monday, January 25th for a free FRANK Talk about Gender, Race, Class & Election 2020.  Dr. Matthew Whitaker will present the program via an online Zoom meeting co-hosted by Zack Garcia from Camp Verde Community Library. A brief recorded video introduction is followed by a live interactive discussion with Dr. Whitaker.  Participants must register to attend the event at  https://conta.cc/397kXTq or by going to our Facebook page (@campverdelibrary) at https://www.facebook.com/campverdelibrary and clicking on Events to find this event and then clicking the link in the description. There is a limit of 30 participants.

It has been said that the 2020 Presidential election is a “battle for the soul” of a divided America–a quaking nation whose fault lines include race, class, gender, urban, rural, north, mid-west, south, rich, poor, middle class, young, middle-aged, and senior. How have these divisions influenced recent elections? Does the forthcoming election promise to conform to, or deviate from, these divisions? Participants will explore these questions in a safe, interactive discussion, that will help them navigate election 2020 as informed and perspicacious voters.

FRANK Talks is an interactive community conversation program from Arizona Humanities in partnership with the Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records. Attendees discuss issues of local and national importance. FRANK Talks encourage participants to weigh facts, provide the opportunity to put them in context, and consider different points of view. Learn more about FRANK Talks at www.azhumanities.org

“The goal of programs like FRANK Talks is to inspire people to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully with one another on important issues that affect our communities,” shared Camp Verde Community Librarian Zack Garcia. “We hope people will learn about other perspectives.”

Warm for the Winter
Jan 26 @ 3:00 pm

Like many other Events during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Warm for Winter looks different this year.   But, that could be a good thing.   Instead of two days in October as was done last year, the Prescott Church of the Nazarene, 2110 Willow Creek Road, will hold Warm for Winter each Tuesday afternoon, from Noon to 3:00 pm, by appointment only, from Tuesday, October 20 through Tuesday, January 26, 2021 with breaks for Thanksgiving  and Christmas/New Year’s Holidays.

To protect those in need and volunteers, health and safety guidelines will be implemented.  Therefore, low income, homeless and needy individuals and families will be required to make an appointment at the Church (928-445-1136), wear a mask (adults and children), and bring proper identification to ensure residency in Yavapai County.   Examples of identification accepted are:  school identification, vaccination record, local library card, state insurance card, state identification card, passport, driver’s license, utility bill.

The need is there, even if the Event isn’t the same.  Providing hats, coats/jackets, scarves, gloves and blankets for low income families, the homeless and needy in Yavapai County has been a staple in this community for some time.   Prescott Church of the Nazarene and its H.O.P.E. Ministries continues this tradition.   For more information, contact Pastor Dora Carter, Director, H.O.P.E. Ministries at 928-445-1136.

Prescott Student GEM Corps/Ameri Corps Applications

GEM Environmental (GEM), is a 501(c)3 non-profit headquartered in Prescott AZ. The organization is now accepting AmeriCorps Crew Member applications for their newly created professional development program called GEM Corps. GEM is seeking young, motivated individuals looking to gain experience through hands-on training and professional development in conservation work.

GEM Corps crew members will be offered extensive opportunities to work with community partners on a variety of projects over the course of their 675-hour terms. Members will serve a approximately 15 hour per week, with 8-10 hours over the weekends working on community projects and 1-5 hours of professional development and/or leadership training occurring on weekdays. The crew will be mentored and trained by field professionals and experienced team leaders as they gain practical knowledge and certifications geared toward helping them find and apply for conservation jobs in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.

 

Following the successful completion of their term, members are eligible to receive the following: $2,360 Segal Education Award, one-year of Non-Competitive federal hiring status eligibility, 30-hour OSHA General Industries Certification, Professional Training certificates in conservation work, and a Civic Leadership Certificate from Prescott College.

 

GEM has previously offered a variety of internship opportunities for local students; however, GEM Corps goes above and beyond the average internship by providing unique experiential learning opportunities at no cost to the participant. While reflecting on his term with GEM, past intern Dallas Willoughby shared, “The service-learning program was great in teaching me about the job and helping me to understand all the different parts of it. Every part of the experience helped me not just in the STEM world, but in learning things like interacting and working with others.”

 

In addition to GEM Corps, GEM sponsors a variety of public programs– including scholarships, paid internships, regular environmental education programming, community clean-ups, and more. To learn more and apply for GEM Corps visit www.gemenvironmental.org.
