September Newsletter 2019

September 13th. is closing in on us, and we are very excited to announce that this day has been designated as Nevins Day by the City of Charlotte! A proclamation has been awarded to Nevins for 60 years of service in Mecklenburg County, and we want to share it with you all of you. We will have guests of honor, but more importantly we invite all parents, guardians, group homes, providers and stakeholders to help us celebrate this special day.

Fighting against the trend to institutionalize, the group started a school for vocational and recreational training, including the first direct service training center in the Carolinas. Nevins has certainly come a long way through the years, and we look forward to celebrating […]

The 14th Annual Festa Italiana was held on May 19th, and we could not have asked for a better day! We had a great turn out and Nevins certainly shined bright with its musical performances, live art demonstration and of course our wonderful participants. We owe a BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Vincent and Sandra Voci, the St Anthony Foundation, the entire Festa committee, and all the volunteers (chef, performers, etc) and all the wonderful guests who made our mission their cause! Also, thank you to Pam Glass and our Vice Chair Tom Gottcent for taking the lead on the silent auction. Tom and Pam coordinated and organized one of the best silent auctions the Festa has had with over 95 items donated. We look forward to next year’s 15th Annual Festa Italiana, which I am sure will be a very special one for all to celebrate. . . . Download […]
