On June 15 our membership will have a "Day at the Rivah" when we travel to the river home of our President, Barbara Dyke. Pat Moss will be there with her sketch-pad and we look forward to watching her at work!

Check back often to hear about other "goings on" of our chapter.

Moss on the James is truly doing what Pat Moss wanted when the Chapters were first started, working in our community to spread hope and joy in the lives of children and adults that have special needs.

Current Projects:
We are so excited about this year and hope you will join us in our fun and fellowship working within our community.

We are selling Christmas Ornaments and raffle tickets for our Moss on the James Endowed Scholarship with the P. Buckley Moss Foundation. The scholarship will be presented to a Virginia student who is enrolled in a teacher preparation program in special education or art education. The scholarship check will be sent to the college or university where the student is enrolled.

Come help us make a difference.

Past Activities:
Our Sixth Annual Tea Party was held on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at Tanglewood Ordinary in Goochland County. We were pleased to have Pat Moss and her daughter Patty attend our Tea. Proceeds from the Tea will go towards an Endowed Scholarship for a VA college student with the P. Buckley Moss Foundation.

Our past projects include support of a Tea Cup Ministry, started at MCV by the mother of one our members - a tiny silk flower arrangement in a teacup is presented to the patients who cannot receive live flowers or fruit. We have also supported Noah's Children, a hospice program for children; We endowed a scholarship at The Riverside School, a school for children who learn differently; equestrian therapy programs; Ronald McDonald house; canine rescue programs; framing programs; and print inventory systems.

Each month members earn chances for a year-end drawing of some terrific prizes. Chances are earned by participation during the year. The more active you are the better your chances of winning.
