Literacy Volunteers 2015 Volunteer/Student Appreciation Dinner

Literacy Volunteers of Harrison County (LVHC) volunteers and students were honored at the annual Volunteer/Student Appreciation Dinner, held July 14 at the Christ Episcopal Church Parish House in Clarksburg.

Thirty people attended the event, which featured a spaghetti dinner, door prizes, and an opportunity for LVHC volunteers and students to get to know one another outside a classroom setting.  The event is held each July. 

“The dinner is a way to have fun while honoring our volunteers and students,” said LVHC Director Kim Payne.  “It is also a birthday celebration for our organization, which has been tutoring Harrison County residents for 35 years now.”
