The BV CISV Memories Alumni Event took place Thursday evening, February 23rd at Barnaby’s in West Chester. Joyful greetings and the loud din of conversation went past the official event end. Everyone seemed to have a fabulous time. Our group was 33 strong.
The “former parent volunteers” group formed the bulk of attendees. We also had a cadre of current members and “under 40” crew plus a recent transplant from the Jacksonville chapter. The group shares a commonality in spirit and belief in the principles of CISV and the impact it has on youth.
We spent 3+ hours of mingling, catching up on adult children/delegates, new hobbies, jobs, endeavors and noshing on the appetizer buffet. No CISV event is complete without an infomercial. The organizer detailed the need for a little lift in volunteer help needed due to the “Covid Gap Years”. But it was short and sweet and the group got back to the party without skipping a beat!
