Week in Herndon

Week in Herndon


Herndon Village Network (HVN), a not-for-profit organization serving Herndon senior citizens, has announced its 2017 Board of Directors -- President: Penny Halpern, Vice President: Charles Marts, Secretary: Rosemary Kendall, and Treasurer: Nancy Boughn.

These directors will oversee the policies, administration, funding, and volunteers for the now three-year-old organization. Volunteers make a difference by providing the elderly much-needed transportation for appointments, errands, and social gatherings. This more organized concept of neighbors helping neighbors encourages older residents to age in the Herndon community and allows them to maintain established routines and connections, which results in a higher quality of life.

Herndon residents who are 55 or older, live in the 20170 zip code, and are interested in HVN services should call 703-375-9439. Interested volunteers should visit www.herndonvillagenetwork.org and complete an application. All volunteers are vetted.
