|General||New Docent Training
From leading gallery tours to assisting in the Museum's Glen Burnie Gardens, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities for all in the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. Participating in the MSV Docent Program requires approximately nine hours of service each month. Prior to volunteering at the Museum, all support docents and docent educators are required to complete special training to learn about the MSV site and the Museum collections. The next training session will take place on Monday, January 28, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. A light lunch will be provided in between a morning session focused on an overview of the MSV and an afternoon session with safety and security. If you are interested in volunteering at the MSV, please download and complete this application and follow the submission requirements included.

|General||Russian Counted Cross-stitch Artist to Show her Works In Winchester
Virginia National Bank (186 North Loudoun Street, Winchester, VA 22601) will open a unique exhibition featuring counted cross-stitch artist Nina Vassallo on December 7 at 4 pm, on view until February 2013. Nina Vassallo was born in Russia, where she graduated from medical school and served for several years as a physician in a clinic in Moscow. She and her husband live in Winchester, Virginia. Twenty-one beautiful cross-stitch works adorn Nina’s home. She has a tradition: after finishing each design, she brings it to the International Club so her friends can share her joy in another masterpiece. She calls it The One Picture Show. Finally she decided to put a proper show together, so everyone could see the beauty otherwise hidden inside her home. When Nina's sister Lyuba heard about The Art of Cross Stitch exhibition, she brought over from Moscow (Russia) three new works of her own, featuring sights from her recent trips to Italy and The Czech Republic.
