VAC Action Fair flyer in jpegEvery minute of service creates a stronger community!  There is a special feeling you get when you fill a need, solve a problem or simply make life better for someone else.  Here’s your chance to identify volunteer opportunities and become an integral part of cultural change by giving back in your own community.  Community-based nonprofits participate to share their organization’s story so they can help match your time and talent with their volunteer needs. 

 One thing is for sure:  Your help is needed in the community!  Any amount of time or talent you can share will be greatly appreciated by the organizations who dedicate themselves to making our area a stronger and more vibrant place to live.  We look forward to seeing you at the fair!

Sleeping Beauty will be brought to life by ArtReach at Old National Bank’s First Fridays for Families on Friday, May 2 at 6:00 PM in The Commons. All First Fridays for Families programs are free thanks to the generous financial support of Old National Bank. Additional funding for this program is provided by the Custer, Nugent, and Teegarden Foundations.


Originally published by Charles Perrault in 1697, Sleeping Beauty tells the story of a princess who is cursed to 100 years of sleep by pricking her finger on an enchanted spindle. Although protected by her fairy godmother, will anyone be able to save her? Young and old will enjoy ArtReach’s enchanting adaptation.


Sponsored by Old National Bank, First Fridays for Families is a free arts program that focuses on enriching the lives of pre-kindergarten through third grade children by highlighting the performing arts. All First Fridays for Families programs begin at 6:00 PM on the first Friday of each month from November through April and are held in the Nugent Custer Performance Hall in The Commons in downtown Columbus.
