What fun we had at NVRC’s Annual Meeting on December 13, 2012!  If you weren’t there, we missed you!

As always our staff had decorated the offices and meeting rooms for the holidays and we enjoyed having our guests take a tour to soak up some cheer.  We planned a menu of old favorites like shrimp, cocktail meatballs, some health-conscious choices, and that old standby of cheese and crackers.  Bonnie’s profiteroles disappeared quickly, leaving the carrot cake, fruit tart, and chocolate log for those with a sweet tooth.  Debbie’s fabulous punch drew those with a thirst to the kitchen.

As our guests ate and chatted, they enjoyed a special Donor Recognition slide show listing the names of the hundreds of donors who have helped us continue to improve communication and change lives every day.  These were interspersed with scenes from some of NVRC’s activities in 2012.
