SIBLING ALERTS

On April 13, 2016 The Arc of Virginia is kicking off it's W(h)ining Wednesdays for Sibs Happy Hour

Every second Wednesday of the month from 6-8pm we will meet at a local bar/restaurant in the Merrifield Mosaic District to network with fellow siblings. Only three days after the unofficial National Siblings Day, we thought it timely to offer a comfortable setting where sibs 21 and older could meet to network, relate, share, and have a good time together. We'll be at Black Finn in Falls Church at 6pm on Wednesday, April 13. It's close to the Metro and bus stop for any sibling 21+ who wishes to join the Trust Team from The Arc of Northern Virginia. Regards,Tia Marsili.
