All Broyhill Park neighbors are invited to the following event:
Broyhill Park TRIANGLE CLEAN-UP and PLANT EXCHANGE
Saturday, May 1
Meet at the Triangle at Graham Road & Strathmore Street starting at 2:00pm.
For the Triangle Clean-Up: Bring shovels and other gardening tools to help enlarge the butterfly garden, pull weeds from the flower beds, and pick up litter.
For the Plant Exchange: Bring some divided perennials, rooted cuttings, or seedlings, and exchange them on a one-for-one basis to get something new for your garden.
Special Seedling Giveaway – Fairfax ReLeaf is providing 30 New Jersey Tea seedlings. These will be free to Broyhill Park residents (maximum 2 per home) given on a first-come, first-served basis. New Jersey Tea is a small flowering shrub that is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
A petition to expand Broyhill Park’s Residential Permit Parking District was delivered to 66 homes* in late March. So far only 10 people have signed and sent back their petitions along with the $10 permit fee. We need significantly more than this in order to be granted the expansion (see details on the petition). If anyone needs a replacement petition, or would be willing to go door-to-door in pairs or with a Civic Association Board member to get signatures, please reply back to this email. Although we have one year in which to collect the required number of signatures, this effort will be discontinued (and checks returned to those who sent them) if not enough support is received by the end of June.

Chairpeople Needed! We’re looking for a few community-minded individuals to organize and chair the next few Civic Association events. These events are National Night Out on August 3rd, a Community Yard Sale in September, and the Halloween Parade in October. Records from previous years are on file, so all you have to do is follow the pattern while adding your own fresh ideas and special touches. Reply to this email if you can agree to do any of these fun events.
Civic Association Dues – Don’t forget to pay your Civic Association dues for 2021. Dues are $10 per household per year and are used to fund Civic Association events. To pay dues, mail a check payable to Broyhill Park Civic Association to Dues Coordinator, 7317 Camp Alger Avenue, Broyhill Park 22042; or bring a check to the Triangle Clean-up; or use the Paypal link at www.broyhillpark.org. Thank you to all residents who have paid their dues so far this year.
