Below is our most recent email--please let us know any feedback. Also, if you aren't getting these in your inbox, sign up on the County site (be sure to check the box that you're interested in CVN and in receiving emails):
Dear CVN volunteer,

To all those who took the time to give us your thoughts in recent surveys--thank you. We had over 90 respondents on each survey. We'll be working through what actions we can take based on responses. Otherwise, we're happy to announce the four gift certificate winners below (if you won, come to our Meetup next Tues., Nov. 3rd at Old Arlington Grill to cash in--or email our County Liaison Sharon if you can't be there):
  • Grace with $25 for Whitlow's on Wilson
  • Marjorie with $25 for Mexicali Blues;
  • Laura with $25 for Busboys and Poets; and
  • Andy with $15 at Regal Cinemas in Ballston
Thanks as always to those who gave their time to our October events--Plants and Pitchers, Time Slips, our CVN Stakeholder Meeting, and the AFAC Chicken Bagging last night.  Many thanks!  A special shout out to the Plants and Pitchers volunteers who  braved the rain, showing great dedication!  (Remember, you can always check our Google Calendar here to review what was done at past CVN events, and what's coming up.)
