April Meet-up & Events

CVN Chair's Report

This Spring has had great weather, so we hope it stays this way so that we can reach our goal of 1,000 volunteer hours for the year! For those of you new to CVN, I hope you can attend the meet-up next week and attend one of our volunteer events soon!
Also we need a new CVN Tuckahoe Volunteer Coordinator. Ideally sessions would continue once a month, excluding during the winter months. If you want to help a successful instructional garden project move forward and meet new people in the process, this position is for you. If you are interested in leading this event,
e-mail Michael Manning. I'd like to thank Michael for doing a fantastic job leading this recurring event!

Upcoming CVN Events
  • Bikes for the World Recycling - Saturday, April 7th, 12:30-3:30pm | CVN will be assisting Bikes for the World with a multi-commodity recycling and reuse event sponsored by Arlington County. We will be managing the bike donation area—issuing receipts, helping people get the bikes out of their vehicles, and prepping the bikes. CVN will be hosting this event from 12:30 to 3:30 pm, though CVN volunteers can also participate in all or part of the earlier shift from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Register here.
  • April Meet-up @ Mad Rose Tavern (Clarendon) – Tuesday, April 10th, 7:00-9:00pm | Join CVN at Mad Rose Tavern to learn more about our upcoming events and meet fellow volunteers RSVP here.
  • "Carnival" Spring Dance with Therapeutic Recreation - Saturday, April 14th, 6:00-10:00pm | CVN will help Arlington County's Therapeutic Recreation Office with their annual spring dance. This year's event has a carnival theme so in addition to helping set up, decorate, and cleanup, we'll lead carnival-related activities during the event. This event, for adults with disabilities only, will feature games, music, food, a photo booth, and art activity. Register here.
  • ATS Schoolyard Garden - Sunday, April 15th, 2:00-4:00pm | Lend a hand with the monthly crew of CVN volunteers helping out in the garden at Arlington Traditional School. Newcomers and regulars are welcome to join us for landscaping projects large and small. This crew is continuing to transform the ATS garden into a fun space for kids to learn outdoors. Register here.
  • Reorganize Columbia Pike's Library Collection - Sunday, April 22nd and April 29th, 1:30-4:30pm | CVN has been asked to help the Columbia Pike Branch Library shift around its collection to make better use of space and to make the collection easier for people to use.  The results of our work will help community members find books and DVDs of interest that they might not see otherwise. We will complete this task over two weekends, but you do not have to participate in both shifts. Register here.
  • Arlington Community Foundation Gala - Saturday, April 28th, 9:00am-noon | The Arlington Community Foundation has requested that CVN volunteers help prepare for their annual Gala. Volunteers are needed to help set up for the Gala by unpacking and setting up decorations and silent auction items. Register here.
