July Update: CVN Summer Events

CVN Chair's Report
CVN has some new events coming up soon: we are partnering with Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) and will assist with backpack stuffing, distributing backpacks, and a family picnic.  Also, the Arlington County Fair is just around the corner and CVN will be helping out again.  So I hope to see some of you volunteering with us and also attending the fair.

The leadership team would like to thank those of you who came to the Summer Celebration.  We really appreciate your hard work and we hope that you enjoyed the party!
