After many successful years, the MVDOVIA Board has decided to disband the organization. We will use our leftover funds to support area agencies and organizations doing similar work. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact MVDOVIA Secretary Megan Hasselroth at or by phone at 563.441.4185. The Facebook will remain live through the end of the year. Have a wonderful holiday season!
