Greetings,

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond recognized “Black History Month” by visiting the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia.  We toured the museum on Saturday February 22th.

There were 2 floors filled with examples of black men, women and children from Virginia that changed our country as well as the world. The visit began with a history of the museum by Adele Johnson, the Executive Director of the BHMVA.  She is very passionate and knowledgeable about each exhibit and gave a brief overview of each one at the center.

Everyone came away from this visit with a renewed understanding and knowledge of our unique place in the formation of our state and country. 

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond strive each month to stimulate the imaginations and aspirations of our youth through activities such as this.  Thanks to caring people in the community and beyond such as yourselves, we continue to show our mentees that their possibilities truly are limitless. Again, thank you for your support.  It means the world to the Concerned Black Men of Richmond and the youth we serve.

 

Sincerely,
Tim Mallory,
President CBM-RVA

Greetings all,

The Concerned Black Men of RVA held our “Social Etiquette: Doing it with class” activity on Saturday, May 25th.  As in the past, it was held at Ristorante La Grotta, a world class fine dining establishment in downtown Richmond.  The event was well attended even though we had to make a schedule change.  Everyone was on time, well dressed and had a great experience putting into practice what we covered earlier in the program.

 The food and staff were great as usual and most of the boys knew what to expect.   They were presented with a four course meal with a choice of entrées consisting of Salmon topped with shrimp, Veal Scaloppini and Filet of Chicken.  For dessert there was cheesecake or chocolate ice cream.

This event is a very important facet of our mission in exposing our youth to diverse cultures and enhancing life skills.

We presented Tony and Andrea Capece with a token of our appreciation for their continued support of the Concerned Back Men of RVA! They are truly special friends and their generosity is greatly impacting young men that we serve.

We would like to thank each of you for your patronage and interest in our organization as we come to the close of our program this year!  Your support enabled us to take the boys to Monticello, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and to the IMAX Theatre in the Science Museum!  The Concerned Black Men of RVA are looking forward to doing greater things next year and we hope that you will spread the word and continue to give assistance to us as we serve our youth.

 

Thank you again
Timothy Mallory

Comments Off on Concerned Black Men of Richmond conducts Part 1 of Etiquette Event with Youth at Franklin Military Academy

April 26, 2018

Greetings,

The Concerned Black Men of RVA recently conducted our Etiquette Pt1 event.  The event was held on Saturday the 14th at Franklin Military Academy.  It is a prerequisite to the LaGrotta Ristorante fine dining outing that will be in May.  We discussed proper dress, table settings and how they are expected to conduct themselves in this type of environment.  The Concerned Black Men of RVA have been doing this since 2011 and have progressed to a point where the mentees are instructing each other on how to tie neckties!

 

Etiquette Pt 12018

We also played the movie “Courageous” which illustrates choices, consequences and fatherhood. This is the 2nd time we have shown this movie to our mentees and it was received very well.  Afterwards the boys were treated to lunch at McDonald’s.

Etiquette Pt 12018

We would like to again thank each of you who have donated to the Concerned Black Men of RVA.  Your support is an integral part to the success of our mission.  We strive each month to engage our youth with life enhancing experiences that will assist them in all their future endeavors.  Your support means the world to the youth that we serve!

 

Sincerely,
Timothy Mallory
