    Join Us - VAFRE's Spring Member Social!

    It's that time again! Join VAFRE on Wednesday, May 18 from 5 - 7 p.m. for an informal Member Social at River City Roll. 

    Let's relax and enjoy each other's company at this boutique bowling alley located near Broad Street and Arthur Ashe Blvd (with parking available). We'll gather on their outdoor, covered patio and your first drink is on VAFRE (limited to Happy Hour only).

    For those feeling playful, VAFRE will have two bowling lanes available during the second half of our event.

    We hope to see you there!
