The Virginia Beach Convention Center hosted a retirement send-off for Event Manager, Keith Bernstein, after 22 1/2 years with the City. He will most definitely be missed but is off to enjoy more time playing pickleball, travel, and living the good life! Wish you all the best, Keith!
Attached is a photo of some goslings and their parents. They were born along the banks of the Virginia Beach Sports Center pond about two weeks ago.
Vice Mayor Jim Wood presented a resolution, at City Council this past Tuesday, for all staff that assisted in the City’s vaccination clinic.
