Hello Visitation Families!

I hope everyone is doing well.  We wanted to update you on the exciting events to come. First, thank you to everyone who participated in the t-shirt sale and lunch program, both of which were a success due to the support and generosity of the VA community.  A BIG THANK YOU to ALC and Paneantico as well!!

We are already thinking about next semester’s lunch and hoping to expand the program.  We will be circulating a survey that will be used to determine what menu options to add.  Please participate in the survey; that is the best way to take everyone’s input into account. 

There will be another opportunity to purchase t-shirts, including long sleeve shirts later this month.  Please be on the lookout for an email from the VAMC and texts from your Class Captains.  

We recently sent home catalogs for the virtual Christmas fair.  I hope everyone had a chance to look through the catalogs, there are some very nice wrapping papers and yummy treats.  Please share the information with your friends and family; 40% of all sales go directly to VA!  Order forms and payment must be returned to school by October 20, 2021, in order to be timely processed.  All orders will be shipped to the Mothers’ Club and distributed at school.

Flyers regarding the 2021 Christmas ornament and a the first ever VAMC Thanksgiving Pie sale will be in your inboxes and backpacks soon.  I hope everyone is excited to add it to their holiday collection. The ornament will be available for sale on the VAMC website starting November 26th.  VA car magnets and VAMC pens are also available! 

Finally, after much consideration and out of an abundance of caution we have decided to move Ladies Night Out to April.  The new date is April 8, 2022. I am hopeful that this change will allow for an even safer event and broader participation.  In the meantime, planning continues.  We are accepting raffle donations and sponsorship opportunities and journal ads are available on our website.  If you are interested in helping prepare for the event, please contact me.

In place of Ladies Night Out the Mothers’ Club will be hosting a virtual wine tasting event on November 19, 2021.  Details will follow.  We hope to see you there!
