“Each spring we hold a family-friendly bowling “FUN”draiser where everyone—the people in our programs (and their families and friends), our board members (and their families), and long-time supporters and new friends (and of course, their families) can participate. Everyone has a blast in a relaxed atmosphere, and—most importantly—they get to see first-hand how our programs make a difference in the lives of the people with intellectual disabilities we serve.The next Langley Bowl will be held on Sunday, March 13, 2016. For all of you NCAA March Madness fans, that is Bracketology Sunday – and, yes, our theme this year is Bowling Madness!”
Excerpt: No one would describe The Future of the Professions as a “light and frothy read.” We are huge fans of author Richard Susskind’s previous books and his evolving thoughts about the future of the legal profession. In this book, he and his son Daniel, a lecturer in economics at Oxford University, look across all the professions to see what the future might hold, observing many commonalities in that future.
Sensei loves sponsoring and participating in the Fairfax CASA Run for the Children 8K Race & 3K Run/Walk every year! Sensei is proud to be a “water bottle” sponsor again. Fairfax CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children) is an organization that is very near and dear to Sensei officers Sharon Nelson and John Simek’s hearts. “Fairfax CASA, a 501(c)(3) public charity, recruits and trains citizen volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children who are under the court’s protection in Fairfax County. Nicknamed “the eyes and ears of the judge,” CASA volunteers help ensure that these vulnerable children are placed in safe, permanent, and loving homes as quickly as possible.”
“In 2001, the FBA Paralegal Section, in conjunction with the Fairfax Law Foundation, launched a book drive for benefit of the residents of the Fairfax Girls’ Probation House. Based on the general support of our members, the project was expanded in 2009 to include the Fairfax Boys’ Probation House, more than tripling the number of books needed.
During the month of January new books, both hardcover and paperback, as well as journals, toiletries, and sundries are collected. Our mission is to change lives and open windows to unfamiliar worlds and innovative ideas through the gift of reading. With the generous support of the Fairfax Bar and members of the community we hope to achieve this goal and further make a positive difference in the lives of our youth.”
