Mark West Nevins june Employee of the Month
Congratulations to Mark West, Nevins Employee of the Month for July. “I’ve been with the Nevins organization for 3 years. I really enjoy the family atmosphere and the spiritual and therapeutic relationships between staff and consumers. This has left a lasting impression I will remember for a lifetime. I thank you for the opportunity to be a part of such a historical and phenomenal organization.” Thank you for the great service Mark.
May has turned out to be a busy time for all of us here at Nevins. The 9th Annual St Anthony’s Festa Italiana was held on Sunday May 18th , and all the proceeds go the Nevins Center. You couldn’t ask for a better day and the best food that Charlotte has to offer. This year the goal is to utilize the funds to purchase a handicap accessible van for our individuals we support. I am pretty confident that we are going to meet that goal! A big thank you goes out to Dr. Voci, and the St.Anthony’s Foundation to for not only what he continues to do for Nevins, but also within the community. Thank you to all the Nevins staff that came out to our event and volunteered for a shift.
Moving forward we look forward to a busy summer. Nevins will be introducing “Camp Nevins” with a camp theme this summer for
the individuals we support in our Abilities and Possibilities program. We have had a lot of interest and look forward to providing a fun and structured program to new and current individuals.
Also, SAVE THE DATE! June14th is our annual Harley Day.For those who are not familiar, the Charlotte H.O.G Chapter #3456 was founded in 1986 and the Nevins HarleyDay was one of their first charity events. Participants will have the opportunity to ride on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle and visit with members from Charlotte’s Harley Davidson owners, with lunch provided. Be at Nevins at 10 am to see the arrival of all the HOGs. I hope to see you all here!
