Leisure Time

Peer support through Relaxation

Whether it is a hectic day at work, the pressures of finishing that last paper for school or needing sometime away from the day-to-day challenges, leisure time is an important component for a balanced life.

The VIRN Community offers opportunities for persons with a vision impairment to spend some of their leisure time together. The relaxing time spent playing board games, card games plus many other activities, including a variety of outings, offers a chance for people to share opinions and ideas through informal conversations .

You never know what new idea you may help spark or hear from others.

Thank You - Inclusive Trivia Challenge Was A Hit

One More Question!

Question: What do you get when you mix a great bunch of volunteers, eight teams of people ready to have fun and questions intended to expose those deep dark portions of your memory?

Answer: Another successful VIRN Inclusive Trivia Challenge!

Eight teams came out to have fun and answer questions ranging from too easy to forehead smacking, tip of your tongue difficult. And in the end, it was all in good fun.

Team CereBellas was victorious after gambling hugely on their answer to the final question.

Congratulations! to the Cerebellas and thanks to all the teams who participated.

Like all VIRN events, volunteers make it happen!

“A big thank you goes out to the dedicated group of volunteers for making our Inclusive Trivia Challenge an awesome event each year.

See all of you next year, and remember to bring a friend or two along!!
