We are very pleased to report that Mount Vernon Community School PTA past President Mimi Carter has been named PTA volunteer of the year for Northern Virginia. Carter received the award last night at a ceremony attended by more than 100 people.
Among her many achievements, Carter was recognized for her leadership in initiating last year’s MV Big Flea and working to make this year’s event a success. Last year the event raised more than $8,000 and is slated to gross more than $12,000 in 2008.
The MV Big Flea will be held Saturday, April 26 come rain or shine. Early admission is at 8am ($10) and general admission begins at 9am (free). At noon, everything is 50% off and at 2pm everything is FREE. The MV Big Flea will be held at the Mount Vernon Rec Center, 2701 Commonwealth Ave, in the Del Ray section of Alexandria.
