DVN’s Response to the Coronavirus
Davidson Village Network is closely monitoring all of the latest developments, news, and government actions about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have made temporary changes to our operations out of concern for the health and safety of our members, volunteers, and staff.
Our wish is for everyone to stay healthy!
We will continue to be available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and telephone 980- 689-1843 and will respond to messages as quickly as possible as we always do.
PROGRAMS & EVENTS
All DVN social events have been canceled and many events we usually offer through our partners have also been canceled by the sponsoring groups, e.g. Temple Kol Tikvah. In accordance with recommendations by health officials, we are encouraging our members to comply with the Stay at Home Order.

Welcome to Our Path! Yours too, perhaps?
The Davidson Village Network is a social and support organization (without walls) for older adults who see friendship, vibrant social engagement and a little help along the way as keys to a more fulfilling – sustainable – livelier life.
Our pursuits do not conform to convention. We are not one-dimensional but many-sided; not circumspect but engaged; not prescribed but independent; not exclusive but all-encompassing. We’re out there . . . doing stuff . . . having fun and getting it done, together! We are redefining what it means to age in the Lake Norman region.
It will change your life! It changed ours . . .
A member’s perspective:
“The volunteers and members were an informal welcome wagon when I moved to Davidson! Friendly visits from board members bearing treats and local news were much appreciated. I strongly suggest that any senior or senior couple become acquainted with the many kinds of services available.” ~ Donna Van Vleet
From the son of a member:
“Davidson Village Network has changed Dad’s life. They have given him a purpose and belonging he’s never had before. He considers the volunteers his friends. He knows them. He shares stories with them. He tells me about their lives and their families. When he talks about them it’s real and it’s special.” ~ Mark Campbell
From a family member:
“DVN provides an invaluable service in our community that our family hasn’t found anywhere else. The kind volunteers are always available to offer a ride to an appointment or simply a walk and a talk.” ~ Leeza Mulloy
