As we mark the first anniversary of the PNC Fairfax Connection this month, there are many achievements and milestones to celebrate. For instance, there’s the member who found employment using the resources at the center, the preschooler who is better prepared for kindergarten, the small business owner who strengthened his business plan and the teenager who mastered video production.
These are just a few examples of people who are coming together to achieve great things at PNC Fairfax Connection. We continue to hear wonderful stories from our members who have turned an experience or program at the center into a personal success.
Please celebrate these accomplishments with us on Saturday, September 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and experience for yourself the rich resources available to everyone in this community.
Come get your own “Passport to Achievement” and learn more about PNC Fairfax Connection by taking part in fun activities with giveaways for the whole family. And thanks to the PNC Grow Up Great program and our sponsorship of Sesame Street™, we are pleased to feature The PNC Mobile Learning Adventure activity tent and welcome a special guest appearance by Walkaround Elmo.
