Who was Jennie Scher?


In 1941, a stretch of road between Government Road and Richmond Road, hard against the Henrico County border and formerly known as Lewis Street and Mill Road, was named after Jennie Scher, a Lithuanian native came to U.S. in 1886.

The wife of a tailor, Scher helped to organize the Ladies’ Hebrew Aid Society in 1897 and was later the driving force in the foundation of an old-folks home that also served as hospice for impoverished itinerants.

Scher is buried up the hill in the Sir Moses Montefiore side of the paired Sir Moses Montefiore and Beth Torah Cemeteries along Jennie Scher Road. Sir Moses Montefiore Cemetery was founded in 1888 and has almost 700 internments.

This is all I could find… anybody got anything to add?

Missing a black lab?

This guy is getting to be Fulton famous

From Lauren:

A stay dog came up to me in Fulton Hill today. He was a black dog, intact male, probably around 9 months old. He was friendly and playful with me, but was a little antagonistic with my dog. It seemed like he came from lower Fulton. He had on a dark blue collar that had white bones. Attached was a short leash-type thing. No tags.

The Executive Chef of the Governor’s Mansion Chris Blain prepared and demoed a Veggie and Black Bean Burrito Bowl in Bon Secours Virginia Health System’s Class-A-Roll with the help of youth from the Family Resource Center’s Youth Health Equity Leadership Institute and the Neighborhood Resource Center’s Food Landscape program. The recipe used only ingredients found in the corner stores and highlighted how to use seasonal produce to prepare affordable, healthy meals.

The events were free and open to the public. Families and individuals came out to learn about eating healthy on a budget and the expanded healthy food choices offered at the corner stores and celebrated the movement toward a healthier East End. Kids’ activities emphasizing physical activity and healthy food choices engaged the young people and community leaders talked to the adults to create an open line of communication.

Tricycle Gardens has several upcoming community-based food skills education programs including cooking demonstrations at the Robinson Theater on July 2nd, July 16th and July 30th from 6 – 7 PM and an in-store tasting at Fine Foods on July 9th from 3 – 4 PM.
