Community Volunteer Network: Survey & Fall Events

CVN Chair's Report
I hope all CVNers had a great summer. The weather worked against us in August and between the heat and the rain we had to cancel a few events. Don't worry, because we are back in September with some great opportunities.

You should have received an email about the CVN bi-annual survey recently. If you haven't already filled it out, please take a couple minutes to do so soon!
