Yoga Mats?

Do you have an unused yoga mat rolled up in the corner or back of your closet? If you do VCS can give it a new home.

Please send in all the 2019/2020 VCS pictures you can supply--the more, the better!

If you have an old point-and-shoot digital camera lying around, don't let it be obsolete; donate it to the middle school!
