The Give65 Campaign is this month July 13th - July 16th. As one of our biggest fundraising efforts of the year, your donation will increase our chances of receiving matching funds, in addition to ensuring we maintain our high level of services benefitting older adults in the community we love. Please consider giving between July 13th - July 16th at https://give65.org/villageconnectionscolumbus.
WHAT'S GOING ON?
We are so happy to be back in full swing! June was a busy month for our social calendar.

evening.                                                                           classic tunes.


We had our first party in over a year at "Cabaret E!" Thanks to our hardworking volunteers who made it possible, our fantastic talent, and our wonderful members. We're still making sure to be safe, but there will soon be more social opportunities for everyone to enjoy as we continue to open up!

We also had our first luncheon of the year: a picnic in Frank Fetch Park for Service Members, catered by Katzinger's Delicatessen.
 
Starting this month, we will be back to having monthly lunches and social hours open to everyone! Where should we go?
