June Monthly Update

For more current events, please visit CVN's calendar.  Also, be on the lookout for information about the Annual Summer Celebration, taking place on July 12th at the Artisphere!

CVN Chair's Report
CVN was all around Arlington last month sorting food with AFAC in Shirlington, planting at the ATS Garden in the Bluemont Neighborhood, pulling invasive plants at Gulf Branch, and enjoying Taste of Arlington in Ballston. We even headed to Alexandria to help with the inaugural concert of the Arlington Symphony Orchestra (in which one of volunteers performs!). The CVN kickball team reached the mid-point of the season and even though the team has yet to win a game, their spirits are still strong! We have great events on the calendar for June and hope to see at one.
