Miss Alexandria Delesia Watson Helps Curry's Auto Kick Off Sponsorship of GMU School of Management

Delesia Watson, Miss Alexandria and a student at George Mason University, visited Curry's Auto Service in the City of Fairfax in recognition of Curry's sponsorship of the GMU School of Management.

During the month of October, Matt and Judy Curry of Curry's Auto Service offered a free oil change to all School of Management students, alumni, professors and staff at their Fairfax shop at 9909B Main Street, several miles from the GMU campus. Curry's auto Service opened the Fairfax shop in April 2011.

Judy Curry is an alumna of the GMU School of Management, graduating in 1990 with a degree in business. As a sponsor for the School of Management, she and Matt Curry are looking forward to becoming more involved in school events and activities, including the alumni association.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

     I recently watched the movie Snow White while babysitting for a friend’s daughter so she could get out.  The last time I had seen the movie was many years ago when I watched it with my kids.  As I have witnessed many times in the past couple of decades, the message of Positive Self Talk was loud and clear. 

     When the evil queen asked, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?” The mirror’s reply, “Snow White” made the evil Queen furious. You see, it wasn’t enough for the Queen that she was beautiful.  Instead, the Queen chose to see that she wasn’t enough. There was someone more beautiful than she.

Most of us know that exercise is good for your health, mentally and physically. Experts are saying that laughter, too, is good for your well-being. There are many benefits that laughter triggers such as strengthening your immune system, boosting your energy, diminishing pain, and protecting you from the damaging effects of stress.

In fact I just attended a Laughter and Resilience workshop and I have to say that I left with a smile on my face :-)).

Local Cab Company "Bails Out" Senior Citizens

 

Economic times are tough for everyone including senior citizens who are living on tight or fixed incomes and have been impacted by significant government cuts.

Since there are more than 5,000 seniors in Gaithersburg alone and seniors make up more than 12% of Maryland’s total population, David Mohebbi, President of Regency Taxi based in Gaithersburg, decided to aid seniors by enacting the “Senior Citizen Transportation Bailout,” a program designed to help elderly citizens gain access to necessary appointments or meet ups with friends and family.

“The economy was really bad. A lot of our clients in Montgomery County couldn’t afford to pay to get to their doctors or run everyday errands like buying groceries.  I came up with the idea to give anyone, age 70 and over, a free ride if needed,” explained Mohebbi.

"This is a wonderful program. Our way to give back to the community for what they give us," said Regency cab driver Ron Stoddard.
