TROY ROBINSON Order Up mobile food cart & mobile food and catering www.orderup mobilefood.com orderupmobile foodcart@gmail.com

Order Up was started when my wife and I were walking on the downtown mall on our first lunch date as a married couple and had two italian sausages at a hotdog cart. i thought it would be a good business to get into and she gave me the seed money for my idea...because she believed in me. 5 years later we own a hotdog cart, a food cart , a 26’ mobile commercial kitchen, delivery car , and have helped a friend start a business under our namesake. I am also the creator of the Cville Dog which I created after August 2017 as an attempt to join together a hurting community. The hotdog consists of apple butter, bacon, blended cheese, and the ORDER UP “seasoning”

THE CHARLOTTESVILLE-ALBEMARLE

Founded in 1914, the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA has been the core of animal welfare in the area for over a century. We are proud of being one of the first shelters to reach No-Kill status in 2006 and the work we have since done to increase our lifesaving capabilities with your generous support. While 2020 brought its challenges, we'll always remember the incredible support this community showed for the animals in our care. You made it possible for us to place 3,758 pets into homes, the highest number of adoptions in the 107-year history of the organization. We also took in 4,557 animals, which is our highest intake rate since 2007. Your gifts were truly lifesaving in 2020, and we are not slowing down in 2021! We are OPEN for adoptions by appointment only. Please call or email adoptions@caspca.org to schedule. 434-973-5959 www.caspca.org 3355 Berkmar Drive, Charlottesville, 22901 Rummage Store: 364 Hillsdale Dr, Charlottesville, 22901

In 2003, when I first started my job hunt as a senior in high school, I had no idea that I would find not only my first job, but my dream job. My name is Leah Williams, and I am the owner of Minerals & Mystics in Seminole Square Shopping Center. For 17 years, I was blessed to be a part of The Crystal Connection family. Kathy and Jim Campbell, the owners of The Crystal Connection, took a chance on a persistent high school student with no work experience. I had a positive and determined spirit and they took me under their wing. I learned from the best and I am honored to carry on the traditions and knowledge of that experience. I started with cleaning jewelry and grew into everything from working with our awesome customers to managing an amazing staff. I love working one on one with geologists and vendors from around the world to bring the best quality, affordable rocks, minerals and jewelry to Charlottesville.

In July of 2020, Kathy Campbell retired and with her The Crystal Connection did as well. In August, Minerals & Mystics opened in the same space with the same staff as its reincarnation. We made some changes and some updates, but we move forward honoring The Crystal Connection with love, remembering our roots, as we should in any spiritual practice. Minerals & Mystics is not just a retail store; we are here to grow together as a like-minded community, empowering each person on our paths of enlightenment. Join us for beautiful treasures, interesting conversations and shared knowledge.

Where you’ll find excellent service, advice you can trust, and a great selection of jewelry at the very best prices. ■ “Great to have a family owned jeweler that you can trust with fair pricing and answers to your questions.” ■ “I bought an engagement ring there last Spring. Andy was a pleasure to work with and took the time to help me make sure I made the right purchase. I had visited several other jewelers and there was a huge difference in customer service. I would recommend the store for any jewelry purchase without hesitation.”

The Mediation Center of Charlottesville (MCC) is here to help you move through the uncomfortable process of conflict resolution. Since 1984, MCC has been providing the greater Charlottesville area with a table to sit at and professional mediators to facilitate the very process most people would rather avoid. We do it by creating a safe, respectful environment and listening. We make sure all involved have an opportunity to speak their truth and be heard; then we look for common ground to build upon. We have conducted thousands of mediations, and we know there is usually at least one little plot of common ground, even if you don’t think there is, and that’s where we start, together.

As the only nonprofit in the area offering the services we provide, we sincerely thank you for your decades-long support, Charlottesville! Together, we are creating a more peaceful community.

Please contact us if our certified mediators can assist you in getting to the other side of a dispute you are having with someone. Maybe it’s with a partner, a co-parent, a landlord or tenant, a business associate or employer/employee, a family member, or a neighbor. Conflict is hard, but we can help.

“Bridging Differences” April 28 – May 4, 2021 c-ville.com

Sometimes an agreement is not reached, but a long, cold impasse is broken, opening the way for further dialogue and releasing some of the pressure that standoffs produce. Most often, an agreement is reached, and we witness the relief of getting to the other side of a barrier that was just too rigid or complex to navigate alone. We witness smiles, handshakes, and even hugs where there had been tension and stress.

16 From pushcarts to modern transportation, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Central Virginia (PCVA) has withstood the test of time. As the holder of the oldest, written, and recorded Pepsi-Cola franchise, PCVA remains family owned and operated over 112 years after its birth in a basement on the corner of 4th and Water Street in downtown Charlottesville. Following the death of the company’s founder, Samuel Ambrose Jessup, or “Mr. S.A.”, in 1960, his youngest son, Jimmie Jessup became President of the company. Jimmie introduced many changes to PCVA, including a move in November, 1963 to a location on Millmont Street. PCVA eventually outgrew this location and in 1983 the current production and sales facility was constructed and occupied. Jimmie remained president of the company until his passing in February, 1984. After their father's death in 1984, Jay Jessup (President) and Suzanne Jessup Brooks (Executive Vice President), became the 3rd generation of bottlers at the helm of PCVA. PCVA has enjoyed over 112 years in the Charlottesville community and looks forward to many more!
