2020 Re-Set Luncheon Cancellation

Dear Mentors Care Family,

It is with a heavy heart that I need to announce we have cancelled our 11th Annual Celebration Luncheon “Reset” for April 28, 2020.

Due to Covid-19, there are many circumstances out of our control

  • Waxahachie Civic Center venue is closed until May 8, 2020.
  • There is not another venue available for the date chosen.
  • If school does go back in session before end of spring semester, students will have APtesting and end of the year testing with days blocked for dead periods.
  • Some of our school partners have expressed the possibility students will not be allowedschool field trips for the rest of the yearHaving considered these things, our only option is to cancel the lunch this year and reschedule for next year. Mentors Care has already booked the same venue & rescheduled the speaker for next year. We have the date set as May 7, 2021. So please mark your calendars! It is going to be a great celebration!!!But I am very excited to announce, We Are Still Mentoring!!! We have put together a way for our mentors to mentor their student without a face to face meeting. All mentors will go through the coordinator to encourage, inform and inspire our students.Thank you for joining us in our mission to help at-risk kids by providing them with a mentor to mentor them to graduation and purposeful lives. Thank you for giving of your time to help our students.Our thoughts and prayers are with you, our students, our schools, and our country in the days ahead.Sincerely,
    Dena Petty
