On Saturday, June 8th, Campus Compact of New York and Pennsylvania (CCNYPA) hosted their first annual VISTA alumni event at Messiah College. There were approximately 20 VISTAs in attendance ranging in years of service from 1972 to present!
Alumni were welcomed by CCNYPA's Executive Director, Char Gray-Sorensen. VISTA alumni Tom McKeon and Lisa Weaver spoke about the impact service has made in their lives and why they continue to stay connected with CCNYPA. Remarks were also made by State Representative Patty Kim.
The event consisted of networking, sharing stories, playing games, and enjoying hors d'oeuvres. It was a wonderful day celebrating service and we look forward to hosting this event again!
