On Wednesday, October 30th, VEA Headquarters Staff and any other interested staff or leaders are asked to wear "something pink"! We will be doing this in memory of VEA staff who have lost their battle with breast cancer, such as Margaret Goodall, and in honor of VEA staff members who are living with breast cancer or who have survived breast cancer.
To participate please plan to wear something pink and you get to wear jeans on October 30th! Additionally, we are asking those who participate to make a donation to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation. Donations may be sent or given to Beblon Parks. If you are writing a check, please make your check payable to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation. Be sure to include whether you are making a donation in memory of someone or in honor of someone and include that person's name.
This has the makings of a fun day but it is also a day when we will be doing something very important in our community. Who knows, there may even be "pink snacks" in the Headquarters Office.
Thanks in advance for your involvement and support.
Participation in this event is strictly voluntary!
Tomorrow, October 17th the AEA Executive Board will have a full day planning retreat. The Arlington Federal Community Credit Union has offered us their boardroom for our retreat.
