Activity Coordinator, Bookkeeper and Volunteers
The VSRA activities and programs would not function well without the support of many people. A few of these people are shown below who have helped greatly support the programs and events that happen throughout the year. They deserve a very large expression of appreciation and thanks for all they are doing. The board of directors knows they could not run the organization alone and without all their tremendous help. Thank You very much everyone, who has helped VSRA and continues to lend support to our mission statement.
