Dear Business Volunteer Network (BVN) Member,

Well, somehow 2019 is coming to an end.  I hope you are able to spend quality time with friends and family throughout the upcoming holiday season.  I also hope that you are able to volunteer during this busy time in order to make someone else’s holiday season a little more cheerful.

As 2019 comes to a close I am also entering the final months of serving as Chair of the BVN Executive Committee.  It has been a pleasure serving as Chair for the past two years, and I would like to thank the members of the Executive Committee for their help in leading BVN and developing resources and programming for all BVN members.  I would also like to thank you for your participation and commitment to BVN.  As a volunteer organization, BVN simply couldn’t make a difference in our community without you.

I am proud of the work BVN has accomplished in 2019 and of the plans we have for 2020.  Please join us at the BVN Annual Meeting at the United Way on February 18th to find out more.

Finally, I hope you are able to join us for the BVN volunteer opportunity at the Empty Stocking Club Toy Giveaway on Tuesday, December 10th.

As always, thanks for all you do in our community.

Kind regards,

Chris Smithka
Business Volunteer Network Chair
