June Events & Meetup

CVN Chair's Report

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend!  A number of events for June have recently been added to our calendar, so please take a look at the various opportunities.  Also, take a look at the updated thermometer in this e-mail, which shows that we are on schedule to break 1,000 volunteer hours!

I'd like to thank everyone who has volunteered with us recently.  We are getting great turnout at our volunteer events and we have received a lot of positive feedback from the individuals who have reached out to CVN!
