September 2019 Newsletter


A Message From Bronwen Fullington, President of CVA:

I am spending my last few days of Italian adventure in a villa near Lucca in Tuscany.  The beauty that is everywhere inspires me, and I’ve been following CVA news with great interest and pleasure.  Glad to know that Art Faire was such a great success!  The next few months will be busy with CVA events, including Christmas in Clayton.  Stay in touch to follow and participate!
