Locally, AIDS Volunteers of Lexington (AVOL) is doing it's part to make sure fewer people in Central Kentucky become a statistic. If you want to show your support for AVOL's work, raise awareness about the global epidemic or pay tribute to a friend or family member affected by the disease you can take part in a community Candlelight Vigil this evening starting at 5:30pm. Participants can pick up candles at Third Street Stuff, Starbucks (Main St.), Tin Roof, Common Grounds, and Dunkin' Donuts (Main and Rose) and march together to Phoenix Park. On Saturday, you can give to a good cause and have a great time at AVOL's annual Red Ribbon Ball .
Diversity truly is everywhere in our community! Unfortunately, the current availability of ESL classes just does not meet the demand. The reveal of the assessment's findings on the 14th was merely a starting point for our community's journey to improve ESL services in Lexington. If you want to volunteer to help execute the improvements identified by the 80 community members who attended the luncheon like better promoting the services that already exist or finding more funding for future endeavors, please contact Isabel Gereda Taylor at Itaylor@lfucg.com or call 859.258.3824.
If you would like to volunteer to help someone improve their English, I will be facilitating an English Conversation Group starting in January.
If you have a few hours to spare to help someone learn English and open up many new doors for themselves and their families, please contact me at Lmattingly@lexpublib.org or 859.231.5514.
