Anyone have a good idea? No store names.

Easter Egg Hunt Poll

eeh
 
A Special Notice to all Broyhill Park Residents:
 
At this time the Broyhill Park Civic Association is planning on having the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 12th with a rain date of Saturday, April 19th.  
 
In recent years turnout for this event has been low.  The Civic Association would like to solicit ideas from our residents, particularly those with young children, as to whether you would participate this year, what you would like to see happen at the Easter Egg Hunt, for example, additional activities or attractions, what's the best day and/or time of day to have it, and any other ideas you may have. 
 
We would especially like to have more families get involved in the setup and planning of this event.  Please take a few minutes to respond to this informal poll by sending us your thoughts and ideas about the Easter Egg Hunt.  Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.

Supervisor Newsletter February 2014

February2014

A few items of information for you or your association newsletter:

The Board Corner: Perspectives from Penny –The extremely cold weather, coupled with long hours of darkness, raises questions about safety on many fronts.  News accounts remind us to bundle up, wear gloves or mittens and a hat, and be mindful of wind chills.  We also are urged to clear snow off the whole car, including the roof, before driving.  What we haven't been reminded of, though, are some other quick tips that can make us, and everyone else, safer.  Be sure to refill your windshield washer fluid, and use it often.  This week I saw several cars on I-395 with windshields so covered with road grime that I wondered how the drivers could see out! When walking in the dark or near dark, try to have something white or light-colored on your clothing.  Some parkas and shoes have reflective tape that helps immensely with visibility.  Far too often, however, folks are wearing dark clothing and simply can't be seen until almost too late.

House Repair and/or Improvement

From Fr. Dundon of Saint Philip's Church:

Need some work done on your house?  Or maybe your elderly neighbor needs some work done? 

The men of the parish are looking to practice Christ's command "to love one another as I have loved you" (Jn 15), by helping those who cannot help themselves in the Falls Church area, specifically in the arena of house repair and/or improvement. 

If you happen to know of any nearby neighbor and/or friend who would appreciate a friendly helping hand, please call the rectory office at 703-573-3808 with the name, address and (if possible) phone number of the person. 

We will then make a visit and talk to them about the project. 

St. Philip's men will be doing this in conjunction with our retreat on February 8th, following the Divine Carpenter by working with their own hands! 

Thanks for your help with this endeavor!
