FirstService Residential: Las Vegas Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus

The Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours program was created in 2008 in loving memory of a remarkable little girl named Cheyenne. She loved visiting the Magical Forest, sharing laughter and hugs with her friends, and connecting with the wonderful people with intellectual disabilities Opportunity Village serves.

Opportunity Village is happy to know that Cheyenne will forever watch over the Magical Forest and the very special children who visit. Cheyenne’s Magical School Bus Tours provides a Magical Forest field trip experience to first grade students from Clark County School District’s most at-risk Title I schools. While youngsters are given the chance to frolic in the excitement of the holiday season, lessons of inclusiveness, acceptance and disability awareness are also incorporated into the day of fun – making it a most merry and meaningful visit to Opportunity Village and the Magical Forest. Through interactions with the wonderful people Opportunity Village serves, classmates and teachers alike, we remind kids how simple it is to Just Be Nice!

FirstService Residential: Silo Point – Service Day

2019 is the first year FirstService Residential is holding a region-wide “Service Day” – making an impact on the lives of our local communities. Silo Point has partnered with local companies to support the Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore City. Through these efforts, we have reached out to multiple business partners to ask for their assistance in this charitable effort. Some of the partners that have committed their time, effort or monetary support include, but are not limited to; Brightview Landscaping, Certapro Painters, Planned Companies and Heartline Fitness. They will be offering their services to clean up the school’s grounds, paint a monument in desperate need of a refresh, clean the school’s interior and donate fitness equipment. The nearly 40 vendors that have made commitments to the cause will also be gathering school supplies, making cash contributions or volunteering their time to help with the various projects. We continue to seek additional partners, donations and commitments and encourage you to help in any way possible. School supplies can be donated and dropped off at Silo Point’s front desk. Please reach out if you have questions or would like to help support the Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School.

Paul Davis Restoration: Join Us at the Texas Firewalkers 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

2019 will mark the 18th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.

The extraordinary attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York City and Washington DC, and the downing of a hijacked plane in Pennsylvania, shook the nation and had global consequences. But for the people living in the towns and cities where the attacks actually occurred, the day has a particularly powerful resonance.

What Happened: Four jet planes were hijacked on September 11 2001 by nineteen Al Queda suicide bombers who were terrorist operatives. The targets were iconic. Two planes were intentionally crashed into New York City’s World Trade Center North and South Towers, causing their collapse. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington. A fourth plane crashed in Bucks County in Western Pennsylvania, when passengers fought the highjackers for control of the cockpit.

Over three thousand civilians lost their lives on September 11. Millions more, including thousands of firsts responders, were impacted by the events of that day, in ways both measurable and immeasurable. Many suffered shock and trauma, the loss of loved ones, businesses destroyed. First responders and rescue team members also suffered ongoing health consequences from working at the site of the World Trade Center.

The entire nation mourns the victims of September 11th, 2001. But because history happens at a very specific time and place, the sites of the attacks hold a special significance.

Texas Firewalkers will honor those 343 FDNY Firefighters that passed away on 9-11-2001 by having participants carrying all 343 accountability tags for the FDNY firefighters. We will also honor the 2018 Texas First Responder Line of Duty Deaths. We are trying to fill all 343 spots this year and we need your support to accomplish this by registering to climb 110 flight of stairs. The event is open to First Responders, Fitness Clubs, Organizations and the general public.

God Bless America!
