Community Volunteer Network Update: Holiday volunteering, Leadership Positions, and Final CVN events of 2010

CVN Chair's Report

The holiday season is in full gear and it's a great time to give back to the community.  Whether you want to show off your gift-wrapping skills, prepare and serve food, or sing carols, there are tons of local opportunities to help you get in the holiday spirit.  To find out more about upcoming events, click here and read our post from The CVN Forum below.
Also, if you're looking to get more involved in the coming year, I encourage you to apply for a position on our Leadership Team or one of our committees.  There are still a few open positions and we'd love to have more people involved.  If you're interested, please submit an application no later than Friday, December 17th.  
As always, thank you for volunteering with CVN!  I wish all of you a joyous holiday season and a great start to the New Year.
