Annual Volunteer Celebration
(Save the date: Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 11:00am to 1:00pm - Location TBD)
The goal of this event is to celebrate you, our volunteers, and all of your hard work completed over the fiscal year. We know the passion each of you brings to your role at CASA, and because you are a volunteer you do this above and beyond all of the other responsibilities in your life. We understand the depth of your commitment, and we want to show our appreciation. We have selected a date in the summer because we plan to host a BBQ where your family is welcome to join you in celebrating CASA's impact in the community.
In the past, we hosted more formal Volunteer Appreciation events as well as Christmas parties. There are a couple of reasons for the change. 1) Based on feedback received from you, we learned that the majority of our volunteers would rather have an informal event where family is welcome and 2) We re-examined our mission and goals and concluded that we'd rather focus specifically on our volunteers rather than on a holiday.
These new events kick off in 2019 which allows us time to plan budgets and agendas. During the remainder of 2018, Program Managers and Program Supervisors will periodically include you on open house invitations.
We are very excited about the new format for volunteer events! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
We are looking forward to another fantastic fiscal year with you! Thank you for your continued service to the children of the Pikes Peak Region!
