On a bright, sunny day, many donned in red, white and blue came to celebrate our nation's historic day! Much appreciation goes to LBWC Community Events Chair Jeannie Meyer who brought the Lake Barcroft Kazoo Band, Bailey's Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department and the Fairfax County Police to lead the parade!
In stars and stripes tradition, many families joined in waving flags provided by Alison Oleson as we walked together with music and celebratory cheers down Waterway Drive to Beach 3.
We concluded the parade by enjoying tasty cookies and refreshing lemonade together. Many thanks to refreshments organizer Eliana Turina and the many volunteers who brought and/or served cookies and lemonade for all to partake at Beach 3. They were:
Jennifer Beggs, Dottie Bennett, Elizabeth Berry, Merri Brown, Char Buss, Roxanna Douglas, Laura Fox, Joyce Grand, Linda Haake, Judy Hilton, Sue Jewett, Janet Kerley, Debra Lee, Lark Lovering, Peggy Morrison, Anne O'Neil, Adele Neuberg, Mary O'Donnell, Kathy Price, Jan Rasgus, Millie Schreiber, Karin Sebolka, Nomi Taslitt, Carol Tether, Joanne Wagner, Diane Weeks and Cathy Williams.

Thank you Lake Barcroft community and Woman's Club members!
The Woman's Club Fundraiser for Charity result is greater than ANY previous Lake Barcroft House Tour fundraising event! We reached out to you, and asked you to help us help others, and you responded with amazing generosity! A total of $21,255 will be distributed to the six charities.
When we cancelled the 2020 House Tour fundraiser due to the pandemic, we told the charities they would become the beneficiaries of our 2021 House Tour. Little did we know that plans for a 2021 House Tour would also have to be cancelled. We decided on an approach that many would call crazy. We asked the community to “buy” imaginary tickets to an imaginary House Tour with real money! We also asked neighbors to donate items for the raffle, which led to the successful sale of raffle tickets. You made our crazy ideas work!
The Culmore Clinic, Bailey’s Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department and the Friends of the Woodrow Wilson Library will split 90% of the funds. The Justice High School Scholarship Fund, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia and the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund will split the remaining 10% of the funds.
Know that your generous donations will make a positive difference for these charities. Thank you!
