PWCA Information for Members and Residents (October 2019, Message #2)

Good evening to all – here’s hoping you have a great Friday evening and weekend. Here’s a couple of items for your consideration tonight.

1. CHILI COOKOFF, HALLOWEEN FEST and NEW RESIDENT WELCOME, OCTOBER 26, 2019, 4:00PM. Yes – IT’S TOMORROW!!!!! Hopefully you are considering your plan to bring home the Best Chili award….less than 24 hours to go….just sayin’….. Reminder – we need volunteers! Especially with the furniture put away for the season – it’ll take a few bodies to move equipment our from the pool house (and later, back in for winter storage again). Here’s the link to the signup sheet:

Side dishes and desserts are also needed.

We’ll have prizes for Best Chili and childrens’ prizes for Best Costume and Best Painted Pumpkin along with some raffle prizes. We plan for pumpkin painting at 4:30 and parade at 5:30 before it gets dark (weather permitting of course).

Volunteers for setup and teardown are GREATLY needed. Setup will occur at 2:30PM. Please email for any questions.

2. WEST SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT STATION TRUNK OR TREAT, October 30, 2019, 6:00pm-8:00pm. From our community’s protectors, “It’s Halloween time, ready or not. Meet us at West Springfield District Station parking lot. Cruisers will be parked and their trunks popped and filled up with lots of candy treats. Bring the kids for treats and giveaways and a safe, friendly…” environment (the article I’m transposing ran out of words at that point)… See this link for the web announcement:

3. GLASS RECYCLING. Glass recycling in NO LONGER supported for curb side pickup in Fairfax County. EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 11 2019, recycling containers that contain glass will be considered contaminated and will not be picked up. Please see the following article for further information – including a map to the purple containers Fairfax County has placed for glass recycling if you wish to utilize that method for recycling.

4. ANNUAL MEETING, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2019, 8:00PM, Lord of Life Lutheran Church. The 2019 meeting will occur in the same location as last year. All documents have been either electronically or physically mailed to Members of the Association. Those documents may also be found on the website. Please consider submitting your name for election this year. Fresh insight and enthusiasm is welcomed on the board.
