Lake Barcroft Woman's Club

Members of the the Lake Barcroft Woman's Club enjoy sponsoring community activities, raising funds for local charities, and seeing each other at Club events.

Health Aids Closet
To help Lake Barcroft residents who are temporarily infirm, the Club maintains a Health Aids Closet with a collection of crutches, walkers, canes, wheel chairs, etc. Please contact Leigh Gonzalez at 703-914-1208 or There is no charge to borrow the equipment.

Woman’s Club Community Garden
In 1974, the Club paid for a footbridge over Holmes Run to connect two sections of our community – a literal metaphor for the Club's years of building bridges to bring residents closer together. Then to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 1995/96, the Club began a Community Garden on the Dearborn Drive side of the footbridge, which continues today as a Lake Barcroft landmark.
