December Events & Meet-Up

Message From the Chair
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I'd like to thank everyone who came out to the Community Residences event last month.  It was our best event of the year and Community Residences was impressed with how quickly we finished raking the leaves!  Check out some great photos on our Flikr photostream.  CVN has had a great year and this month is our final push to reach the goal of 1,000 hours.

If you'd like to be more involved with CVN next year, please feel free to let us know of any ideas you have for events.  Also, if you'd like to improve your leadership skills, serving on the leadership team is a great way to accomplish that and to have fun while doing it!

  • Invasive Plant Species Removal - Sunday, December 9th, 2:00pm - 4:30pm | Not all plants are good for the environment. A sunny winter day can be a great, bug-free time to work in the woods. Come on out to the Gulf Branch Nature Center and aid in the steady recovery and return of healthy trees, wildflowers, and wildlife to the area by removing these invasive plants. Register here.
  • December Meet-up @ LA Bar and Grill (South Arlington) – Tuesday, December 11th, 7:00-9:00pm | Join CVN at LA Bar and Grill to learn more about our upcoming events and meet fellow volunteers. Register here.

At the wrapping party, we will hand-pick gifts based upon ideas from parents, wrap them, and prepare them to be delivered. There will also be refreshments and lots of holiday music! Register here.
