Volunteer at Mt. Vernon RECenter

Mt. Vernon RECenter’s volunteer program includes providing assistance and encouragement in the fitness room, greeting and checking in our members at the front desk, serving as class assistants, landscaping, cleaning and other duties. Volunteers range in age from 16 to 80. We welcome groups, including students from Fairfax County Public Schools. Volunteers who work 16 hours a month enjoy the benefits of exercising, swimming, making new friends and serving the community.

Help Others Skate through Life

Adapted Ice Skating, introduced at Mt. Vernon RECenter in the fall 2008 class session, is going strong. Wait lists attest to its popularity, and more classes could be added if only there were more volunteers. If you can help, call 703-768-3224, x 206 for information. You don’t have to be an expert skater but you do need to be comfortable on the ice and have basic skating skills.

Variety is the Spice of Life

Mt. Vernon has launched a new class that gives discriminating preschoolers the chance to sample a host of varied opportunities for fun. Variety Zone will rotate weekly through established favorites, like Preschool Picassos, Magic Kitchen and Adventures in Gardening. Judging from the early response, Variety Zone promises to be the RECenter’s most popular program.

Join the volunteer team at your neighborhood RECenter and get the insider’s edge on the latest developments!

Sue Erbele
Mt. Vernon RECenter’s
2013 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

Sue has been devoted to landscaping and beautifying our grounds at Mount Vernon RECenter. She is an asset to our fitness room by keeping the machines clean, greeting/cheering on our members with their workout. Sue has been reliable and works well with all the other volunteers and staff alike. She has helped with first day of class registration and has proved to be a real asset to the Fairfax County Park Authority volunteer program.

Customers have benefitted from Sue being a great volunteer by having a clean groomed entrance and walkway. She is a pleasure to have in our fitness room and more than willing to help wherever she is needed. In the fitness room, she has a cheery greeting for all.

Congratulations Sue on a well deserved award!
