April Meet-Up, Events & More

Message From the Chair
I'd like to thank everyone who helped make Family Ice Skate Night with Therapeutic Recreation last week one of our best events! Both the participants and our volunteers had a great time.  After the event, I received a lot of positive feedback for CVN as the staff greatly appreciated the help provided by our volunteers.  Check out the photos of this event and the stream clean-up earlier this month on the CVN Flickr page. And we have a new volunteer event tomorrow: Easter Egg Hunt Volunteers.  This event was a lot of fun last year, so I hope you'll consider joining us!

Also, Arlington County is hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Celebration on Sunday, April 21st from 3-5PM at NRECA Conference Center, 4301 Wilson Blvd. This Celebration is to thank volunteers for their hard work and that includes you!  
Even if you have only attended one CVN volunteer event, I highly encourage you to attend as it will be a great opportunity to hang out with other CVNers and learn about all the different ways that volunteers are involved in the County.   Please RSVP by April 14 (indicate 'CVN' in your rsvp) and look for me when you arrive:
