Yesterday, I participated in two volunteer events with the Kiwanis Club of Tyson’s Corner/McLean. The first was with Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation at the Fair Lakes PetSmart and the second was at the Northern Virginia Ronald McDonald House.
The PetSmart event went really well. I met a lot of people and several dogs were adopted. Unfortunately, the two best dogs there somehow didn’t get adopted.
Leaving PetSmart and going to the Ronald McDonald House, required a complete change of clothes and a quick cleanup. We made dinner for families coming back from the hospital. The menu included chicken parmesan, eggplant parmesan, cucumber salad and cookies for desert. Several people showed up from the Kiwanis and also from the Meetup that the Kiwanis posted. Fixing dinner as a group was a lot of fun. I got to meet more people and really enjoyed the whole experience. I’m hoping to officially join the Kiwanis soon. I really like this group. They are very active and a fun group of people to spend time with while helping out the community.
