6th Annual VCS Creek Clean-a-thon!

Every year we participate together in a community service event that doubles as a fundraiser. It’s time to start planning for our Annual Creek Clean-a-thon on Saturday, April 18th, from 9:30am-11:30am.

This event needs one more coordinator, someone to put the FUN in our FUNdraising efforts. Can you help make the money magic materialize? All event and outreach materials are already created… now, the right person to coordinate this piece of the event is needed. Please let Rebecca or Stephanie Lennox know if this can be you!

Please email Crisarlin to prepare a monthly schedule.
