Due to recent developments and the growing concerns regarding the Coronavirus, this month’s VJCC Executive Council Meeting, Spring Cleanup, Spring Bingo and RAP April Movie Night have been canceled.

Starting this Saturday, March 14th, the VJCC will be closed until further notice.  Please let me or the VJCC Office know if you have concerns regarding the closing of the VJCC.  We will continue to monitor the situation and we may extend the closure of the VJCC.  We will provide updates as they are available.

We feel these precautions will help potentially eliminate and protect the VJCC membership against this novel virus.
