May is Preservation Month + Upcoming volunteer events

Hello VSF community,

We recently welcomed the Alliance of National Heritage Areas to tour The Village School!  Big thanks to Muscle Shoals NHA for hosting and bringing together all of the National Heritage Areas for a week of history and community! We enjoyed showing off what we've been up to at VSF.  Muscle Shoals NHA has been integral to the work we’ve been doing here.

There are 62 designated National Heritage Areas in 36 states across the country that support a diversity of conservation, recreation, education, and preservation activities. WOW!
Be sure to include a national heritage area in your summer plans!







We are hosting monthly volunteer dates in collaboration with Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area: Spring-through-Fall as the weather allows.  

NEXT WORK DAY: Saturday, May 20th, 11am-2pm

Upcoming dates:
Sat. June 17th
Sat. July 22nd
Sat. Aug. 19th
Sat. Sept. 16th
Sat. Oct. 21st
