March Meet-Up, Events & More



Message From the Chair
After a slow start to the year, winter is almost over and we have a number of new volunteer opportunities coming up!  The stream cleanup and gardening events are great ways to get outside, have fun and help out the community.

The meet-up at Buzz Bakery on Tuesday, March 12th is also a great way to learn more about CVN and meet other active volunteers (in addition to sampling some amazing sweet treats!).  For those of you who are new to CVN or haven't attended a meet-up for a while, I highly encourage you to come out.
