After well over a year without in-person VSRA membership events due to the pandemic members flocked out to finally reunite under the Virginia Zoo’s event pavilion on June 24th. Held just feet away from the Zoo’s majestic Malayan tiger, VSRA members were eager to meetup and mingle for a fun-filled evening of catching up.
The 165 VSRA members that came out enjoyed locally brewed beverages, such as O’Connor Brewery’s Lizard King Lager, and chowed down on bratwursts and barbeque. Attendees also made good use of the provided “digital” photobooth, where members were seen having a fantastic time. A DJ from Astro Entertainment played numerous nostalgic hits from the 70’s and 80’s.
Those that attended were automatically entered into a raffle drawing for various door prizes, which included the following:
- An insulated VA Zoo tote bag, containing a 4-pack of tickets, train tokens, a small plush toy, and a water bottle
- Drawings for tickets to Nauticus & the Battleship Wisconsin
- Gift certificates to Brick Anchor Brew-House
- A VSRA swag bag, filled with an assortment of VSRA merchandise, as well as an Amazon gift card, and tickets to the 2021 VSRA Safety & Health Seminar
We thank everyone who attended the VSRA Member Reunion Social at the VA Zoo; it was a huge success!
