We are so excited to report that Vilakazi will appear on Fox 25 this week!
Board member Lauren Dennison will appear with Kelli Dupuy, the reigning champion of our rock-paper-scissors tournament. This was Kelli before dominating at our last tournament:
This should be great! We are so greatful to anchor Liz Dueweke for having us! We hope this will help get the word out about our second rock-paper-scissors tournament, which is Friday evening, by the way.
Our board has decided to have its first retreat. We're getting together this weekend to discuss long-term goals and how to accomplish them. The next year will be a very busy one for us, and we're all hopeful. We'll post pictures and let you know how it goes!
We have an opening on our board, and we're accepting applications. After nearly two years of helping Vilakazi, Chad Previch has stepped down to have more personal time. We appreciate all the work he did for us, and he will be missed!
The board application process is simple. All you have to do is fill out the application form and submit it with your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download the application right there on your right. ------------->
The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, May 27. If you have any questions, just email Leigh.
If you have applied before, your application will be considered with the new ones. If you'd like to send an updated resume, that's fine, too.
To share a little bit about our board ... We are a working board. There are no financial requirements to serve, but we enjoy 100 percent board participation. What we need the most from our board members is a willingness to help furthur the Vilakazi cause of helping South African children.
We're excited to have a new volunteer join our board!
