Vandeventer Black Law volunteers spruce up summer camp

The law firm Vandeventer Black and family members continued their tradition of helping prepare our Civitan Acres property for Summer Camp 2017. The camp, which runs for 7 weeks every summer, give persons with disabilities a great summer camp experience while caregivers are home also get a break from providing care. The volunteers painted, spread mulch, did clean-up, repaired broken items and did power washing and planted flowers. This is the third year the company has cleaned up the camp and is just one of many ways the company helps Eggleston. On April 26th Vandeventer Black will be honored with an award for Corporate Citizen volunteer service at the Volunteer Hampton Roads Volunteer Achievement awards on April 26. For information on the event visit www.volunteerhr.org. Thanks to our friends at Vandeventer Black.

WNIS Interview With Harry McCoy

Harry McCoyAt age 94, Harry McCoy isn’t ready to slow down. A retired Norfolk attorney and member of the Norfolk Rotary Club, Mr. McCoy has fond and very sharp memories of Mrs. Eggleston. He has maintained a scrapbook of photos of Mrs. Eggleston from the 1930’s. “Mr. and Mrs. Eggleston were like family to me,” recalls Mr. McCoy. “My parents were very close with Aubrey and Louise Eggleston and I called her “Aunt Louise.” We lived across the street and I remember the good things Mrs. Eggleston was doing many years before she became involved with the Tidewater Vocational Center which they later renamed Eggleston in her honor.”
