Halloween Event, Fall Clean-Up Event, November Meet-Up & More

Message From the Chair
This year for Halloween, CVN is partnering with Parks and Rec for a family Halloween event this Saturday.  The Halloween events are usually some of the best events we help out with, so I hope some of you can come out for it.

Our biggest event of the year is almost here!  Our Community Residences clean-up day is a fun outdoor event.  If you are new to CVN, this is a great event to start with and you can meet a lot of CVN's past and current leaders.  We will be going to the beer garden afterward for a social event.

If you're looking to get more involved, develop your leadership skills, and give back to the community,  I encourage you to consider serving on our leadership team or one of our committees.  For more information, please contact me at or come to our November meet-up where you can speak to the current Leadership Team and learn more.
