Herndon Village Network (HVN) celebrated its volunteers with a tea held on Sunday, Oct. 23 at the Four Seasons clubhouse.
Herndon Village Network (HVN), a not-for-profit organization serving Herndon senior citizens, announces its 2017 Board of Directors.
President: Penny Halpern
Vice President: Charles Marts
Secretary: Rosemary Kendall
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.
As Town of Herndon Mayor Lisa Merkel noted, “I am so excited about having Herndon Village Network as a non-profit in the Town of Herndon. HVN is advocating for our Herndon seniors' ability to stay in their homes by providing free rides to their member clients. Please join me in supporting this cause.”
