At No Limits Eastern Shore we are excited to welcome Christiane “Chris” Miller in her new role as Director of the Brain Injury Services Coordination Unit at the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (VA DARS)!
We are especially delighted that Chris took time out during her busy first month in her important statewide position to travel out to the Eastern Shore to meet us and learn about our programs and our people. Not everyone makes the trek out to our region so we really appreciate her for making that effort!
We expect great things from Chris Miller as she develops in her new role and we are already looking forward to her next visit as DARS begins a round of statewide brain injury program evaluations in preparation for this year’s 5 year funding renewal process. She has also promised to come out on a summer Friday to visit the No Limits Hot Dog Cart!
As we welcome the New Year, we would like to share photos of one of our favorite annual traditions – ringing the bells for the Salvation Army. We love volunteering within our community and ringing the bells is a perfect way to do so! Check out the proud No Limits bell ringers from 2019 below!!
Kyle Fulk, the No Limits Case Coordinator, rang bells as well this year but forgot to snag a photo of himself ringing. 🙂
Happy New Year and best wishes to all as we begin this new decade!
No Limits Eastern Shore is deeply saddened to report the passing of our longtime member and beloved friend, Velvet Diana Copes. Diane, as she was known, was a strong, kind, and fiercely determined woman who fought mightily to retain her independence and did so with grace, dignity, and love. Her laughter and her compassion will be greatly missed by all who had the honor of knowing her. Diane was an advocate, a volunteer, and an excellent friend who loved and was loved by her family, her church, and her community. There will be a Memorial Service held at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Wardtown, VA, on Saturday, 1/4/19, at 11 am. Her obituary can be found here: https://www.morrisfuneralhome.org/obituary/velvet-copes?fh_id=15318
We would like to say an extra special thank you this week to 2 local organizations who recently donated to No Limits Eastern Shore, The Eastern Shore Convocation of Episcopal Church Women and the Eastern Shore Chapter of Dining for Women. With their donations, we were able to purchase several, much needed items for survivors of brain injury confined to long-term care facilities and other friends in need throughout our community. Members of No Limits thoroughly enjoyed choosing, wrapping, and delivering these gifts to their friends and peers. Check out pictures of the process of getting the gifts ready for delivery below!
Thank you again SO VERY MUCH to The Eastern Shore Convocation of Episcopal Church Women and the Eastern Shore Chapter of Dining for Women for your donations to No Limits. Your assistance truly helped No Limits members to wish their peers and friends a very, Merry Christmas!
