Spring Cleaning and Donations

 Trying to purge your garage, basement, attic or storage closets of unwanted items?

In the process of remodeling your kitchen or bathroom and don't need those gently-used or leftover items, like extra tiles, light fixtures and faucets?

Then consider donating them to the Northern Virginia Chapter of Habitat For Humanity which runs a program called Restore.

Busy Weekend

 As if you are not busy enough with work, family and preparing for summer, I thought I'd share some upcoming weekend events that you may want to add to your list.

Sand Day is TOMORROW, weather permitting, starting at 10am on Beach 4. There will be food, fun and games, so stay tuned to LL for more information.

Green Springs Gardens Plant Sale is Saturday, May 14 from 9am-3pm

JEB Stuart Raider Run is Saturday, May 14th at 8:00 am.

Mother's Day

 In case you need a gentle reminder, this Sunday, May 8th, is Mother's Day, so if you haven't already secured a gift for Mom, look no further than this posting as we have compiled some great suggestions for you.

There are the typical stand-by gifts, such as plants, flowers, candles and beauty products, but if you really want to honor Mom this year with a gift that is memorable, try giving her something that is not expensive or consumable; something that will not dry up and die and something that you can enjoy together.

Easter Egg Hunt

 This Saturday is the annual Lake Barcroft Easter Egg Hunt at 11 am at Beach 5.

Organized by the Woman's Club, this family-friendly event is a huge draw and a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday.

There will be over 3,000 eggs hidden in and around various areas of Beach 5 and children will hunt for eggs by age group, so every little bunny is sure to get some treats to fill her basket.

So bring your Easter basket and the camera down to Beach 5 this Saturday for some family fun and socializing with neighbors!

See you there.

Earth Day April 17th – It's Official!

It's official!  Earth Day will be held on Sunday, April 17th from 3:00 - 6:00 pm at Beach 5, due to the persistent weather predictions for rain and strong winds all day Saturday and the potential for afternoon thunderstorms.

All of our volunteers and presenters have graciously agreed to come Sunday when the weather is supposed to be warmer, dry, and hopefully sunny.  Please come and thank them for their extraordinary spirit of cooperation to make this a successful event.
