Wishing You a Happy International Volunteer Manager’s Day! :)

Hello Colleagues,ivmdaylogobigger-1

Every year, November 5th is International Volunteer Manager’s Day! Since it landed on a Sunday this year, I didn’t want to chance confusion. Especially when we had the celebration event on Friday, November 3rd.

 

In case your boss/coworkers are disappointed that they missed your special day, you can let them know you accept belated well wishes and treats!  :)

You’re a gift to our community!!

 

All the best,

Lindsey, Lisa, Shana, Nikki W., Nikki R., Stacy, Alex, Barbara, Ingrid, Paige, Sarah, and Alice :)
