Petersburg Fall Fix-Up Day 2018

Pam from RTR and Tianna

Our Operations Admin and Executive Assistant, Tianna volunteered with Rebuilding Together Richmond (RTR) one rainy Saturday this month.

The organization hosted their third annual “Fall Fix-Up Day” in Petersburg to help repair over ten homes and community spaces and clean up trash around the area. This day is similar to RTR’s “National Rebuilding Day,” which is a full day of home repairs and community revitalization in the Spring. 

Tianna acted as their Communications Specialist by managing their social media platforms. She spent the day taking pictures and videos, creating posts and interviewing volunteers and homeowners on the event.

Fall 2018 Job Fairs

Vivia and Dionne

Astyra tabled the Virginia State University and Reynolds College job fairs in September and the RVA Career Expo earlier this month. 

At the three events, individuals were given the opportunity to learn more about us as well as receive information on available jobs. We also handed out cool Astyra swag such as sunglasses and rubber wristbands.

We believe job fairs are a great chance for people to find possible employers in a stress-free environment. We’re glad we were able to enlighten the community on some career options we have.

Congrats 2018 Newlyweds!

Kathy and Victor

Astyra Technical Recruiter, Victor and his lovely wife, Kathy tied the knot this month!

The two met in December 2011 and soon after went on their date together at Texas de Brazil. Several years later, Victor proposed to her at the same restaurant while on a trip in Las Vegas.
 
They decided to have their wedding a year later. The ceremony was held at St. Joseph’s Villa with the two surrounded by close friends and family. Following, they held their reception at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
 
We’re wishing the two a lifetime of love and happiness!
