Independence Day Parade - Cool Fun in the Hot Sun

Thanks to all who helped to make this day a great success!

This past July 4th Parade was just amazing in spite of the heat! What a great turn-out -- LB residents, friends, and lots of children marched on down Waterway Drive.

We send a heartfelt thank you to our Community Events chair, Alice Edmondson, to the Cookie Coordinators, Nomi Taslitt and Michelle Moorehead, and to the LB Marching Band who cheerfully guided the group, following Jeannie in her flag donning golfcart and the Fairfax County ambulance. All the marching guests in the celebratory walk enjoyed the music from Beach 5 to Beach 3. We send out a special and much deserved recognition with our gratitude to our beloved Jeannie Meyer! This was Jeannie's 50th year of running the parade (with a couple of short breaks in there).

Of course, Independence Day would not be the same without your delicious COOKIES and lemonade at Beach 3. We had a record number of cookies! THANKS to all the bakers! And thanks to all who helped organizing, setting up and making the event such a success: Adele Neuberg, Aileen Pisciotta, Alice Edmondson, Benton and Joan Fisher, Carla Grosz, Carol Hopkins, Cathy Williams, Debbie Ladwig, Denise Dreiman, Dottie Bennett, Eliana Turina, Heidi Bonnaffon, Jan Rasgus, Jenny Alvarez, Jo Ann Krukar Webb, Joanne Wagner, Julianne Mueller, Kathy Utgoff, Laura Fox, Lea Bellas, Linda Haake, Lynn Varshneya, Marilyn Di Paolo, Martha Rubenstein, Merri Brown, Nora Darago, Wanda Martinson and Wendy Diliberti. And thanks to Roseanne Rubin and Elaine Mulligan for all of their website work in preparation for the event.

Continuing the celebration at Beach 3, the band played the National Anthem and other lively patriotic tunes. We’re so grateful for the participation of the Lake Barcroft July 4th Marching Band.

The LBWC Board appreciates the involvement of all its members and their giving spirit which continues to shape our wonderful community.

⁠Woman's Club House Tour Charity Fundraiser, A Big Success!

In spite of the drizzly weather, hundreds of Lake Barcroft residents and friends toured five lakefront homes

and made friends along the way. All while helping the community!

A HUGE THANK YOU to every Lake Barcroft resident and guest who bought tickets and made donations to

support this year’s Woman’s Club charities! Raised funds will be supporting the selected charities

  • Bailey's Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department
  • Culmore Clinic
  • English Empowerment Center
  • Justice High School Scholarship Fund
  • The Lamb Center
  • Justice High School's Food Pantry - The Wolf Shack

The Woman’s Club House Tour Charity Fundraiser this past May 5th was a big success due to your

contributions and the more than 70 Woman’s Club members and non-members who helped make the

House Tour fundraiser event happen!

The primary mission of the Woman’s Club is charitable – to raise funds to support local charities. We would

not have had such a great House Tour event without your involvement and support. THANK YOU!!!!


A wonderful spring morning, lots of great volunteers, and hundreds of excited kids combined to make

this year’s Woman’s Club Easter Egg Hunt a huge success!

Every corner of Beach 5 was filled with basket-toting kids and lots of cute bunny ears! About 3,000 eggs were scattered around and nearly all were found, including the four Golden Eggs. And, of course, the Easter Bunny made his annual appearance. The turn-out and the fun were fantastic!

MANY THANKS to our former (for 20+ years!) Easter Egg Hunt organizer Jeannie Meyer and her family, who helped guide us through the process this year, and MANY THANKS to Easter bunny, Rick Kercz, who chatted with kids throughout, managed the Golden Egg prizes, and gave out lollipops.

And, last but not least, THANKS SO MUCH to our new Egg Hunt Coordinator, Alice Edmonson, and the 30+ members of the Woman’s Club who stuffed eggs with over 10,000 jelly-beans, set up the hunt areas, hid eggs, directed kids, and cleaned up. Without the many hands from all our volunteers, we couldn’t have such wonderful Easter Egg Hunts and other community events.

The 47th Annual Woman’s Club Halloween Parade was a success! MANY Lake Barcroft “kids” (ages 0–99) in costume filled Waterway Drive in a festive march from Beach 5 to Beach 3, with a Baileys Crossroads Volunteer Fire Dept. ambulance and the Justice High School marching band leading the way. And the band played on at Beach 3, while everyone continued to celebrate.

THANKS SO MUCH to parade founder JEANNIE MEYER, who – just a few weeks out from surgery on her lower leg – still managed to carry on this beloved annual tradition. And also to Community Events co-chair ELIANA TURINA for hosting a fun “beach party” after the parade. Eliana has decided to take a well-deserved retirement from her role as refreshments coordinator, and her shoes will be VERY difficult to fill! Eliana, we are so appreciative of your many years of hard work on both the July 4 and Halloween Parades.

We’d also like to thank Jeannie’s family members, the Justice HS marching band, the BXVFD, Reid Voss, Bill Stage, and these fabulous ladies who baked or bought hundreds of cookies for all to enjoy and/or helped host the party at Beach 3 (We hope we didn’t miss anyone!):
