Club members were inspired by Tauri Robinson’s description on Oct. 1 of the programs at the Meadowood Community Center for youth and adults and the partnerships in events.  For adults; a food pantry, fitness classes, a job shop, and an open computer lab.  The youth programs serve K-12, including an after school program at Orchard Ridge for middle and high students with a recording studio “Meadowood Records.”  Among the Center’s partnerships is a MMSD Play and Learn program on Wednesday and Friday from 10 am to 12 Noon.  Other partnerships are First Tee, Common Wealth Recreation, and Read Your Heart Out where volunteers read once a month to 4 to 6 kids.  They use books provided in advance from the library, which is located next door to the Meadowood Center.  In the summer, they have a program for K-5 which is free.  Tauri Robinson is a Madison native with a degree in Political Science from UW-Madison.  

Our thanks to Tauri for his wonderful work in the community and for his presentation.
