February Meet-Up, Events & More

Message From the Chair
Looking for something new and fun to do this weekend?  Join us for an upcoming CVN event: Feel the Heritage Festival or the Red and Black Ball or both! The Red and Black Ball will be a great event (see the blog post below), so I encourage you to sign up.   If you'd like to see more volunteer events, CVN could still use your help.  If there is a particular event or organization that you'd like to try out, please let me know.

I hope you can make it to our monthly meetup at Stray Cat Cafe! Together with the Lost Dog Cafe, the Stray Cat Cafe helps support the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation which rescues and places over a thousand abandoned dogs and cats each year. All of the cats featured in framed photographs on the wall are rescued cats and some are still available for adoption.
