Brethren Volunteer Service 287th orientation unit is announced.

Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) has announced the start of the 2010 Winter Orientation, to be held Jan. 24-Feb. 12 at Camp Ithiel in Gotha, Fla. This will be the 287th orientation unit for BVS and will consist of 15 volunteers from across the US and Germany. Several Church of the Brethren members will attend, and the remaining volunteers come from varied faith backgrounds.

A highlight of the three weeks will be a weekend trip to southern Florida. During orientation, the group will have the opportunity to work at area food banks, a rehabilitation facility, and other various non-profits.

A BVS potluck is open to all those who are alumni, friends, and supporters of BVS on Tuesday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m. at Camp Ithiel. "Please feel free to come and welcome the new BVS volunteers and share your own experiences," said an invitation from the BVS Office. "As always your thoughts and prayers are welcome and needed. Please remember this new unit and the people they will touch during their year of service through BVS." For more information contact the BVS Office at 800-323-8039 ext. 423.
