SOVA Area 6 board members celebrated the holidays early with a dinner after our brief December board meeting. During the meeting Area 6 was thrilled to welcome our new Secretary, Jen Bolles and new Chesterfield Fund Raising Volunteer, Maggy Kriebel. The experience and assistance of both are warmly welcome and greatly appreciated by Special Olympics Area 6 which covers Amelia, Chesterfield, Goochland, New Kent, Powhatan, and West Point.
Jannai Kennedy and Travis Hunter were invited, along with their families, to join SOVA Area 6 at the Christmas Dinner. Following the brief meeting, the Athletes and their families were introduced and the board members wished them the best in the Winter World Games in Korea.
