Dear Visitation Families,
My name is Colleen Britton, I am the 2021-2022 Visitation Academy Mothers’ Club (VAMC) President. I am honored to serve as the president this year and look forward to planning exciting events for our girls. I am especially excited to announce that some of our annual events will be returning this year, and the VAMC Executive Board and I are working on adding new events as well.
The Mothers’ Club is made up of mothers who volunteer their time to coordinate events and programs that support our school. All VA moms are automatically a part of the Mothers’ Club, and your time, talent and contributions are much appreciated. Everyone is welcome to participate, and I promise if you volunteer for just one event you will make a difference! Throughout the year, we will send emails about various volunteer opportunities, and I welcome anyone to contact me if they would like to help at any time.
Please allow me to introduce this year’s VAMC Executive Board:

I invite all moms to join me on Tuesday September 21, 2021 at 7:00pm at Ponte Vecchio for our annual Meet & Greet.
In addition to our Welcome Dinner, I am thrilled to announce the return of Ladies Night Out! Please save the date:

Invitations for the Welcome Dinner and Ladies Night Out will follow and information regarding upcoming events and important dates can always be found here on our website.
