Civic League Meeting
Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 11, at 7 pm. Due to the city requiring us to purchase insurance in order to use the high school, we have found another location. Beginning in March we will now be holding our meetings at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church (corner of Centerville & Kempsville), in their Fellowship Hall. The entrance is on Centerville Turnpike and has a slanted driveway up to the door. Look for a Civic League sign on the door. We hope to get Patrick Gallagher, the new police captain of our 4th precinct, to come speak to us at this meeting. We will also be voting on the proposed 2014 budget.

Community Yard Sale
It won't be long until our Community Yard Sale on April 5 & 12. You may want to start looking through your things to see if you have anything you don't use any more and would like to sell. The civic league will take care of advertising. You do the rest at your place. During the second weekend of the sale (April 12-13), the Charlestowne Garden Club will be hosting a Spring Plant Sale at the corner of Blue Knob Rd. & Hidden Valley, one block from Legare. This will be a fund-raiser for our Butterfly Garden planned for Charlestowne East Park.
Neighborhood Clean-Up Day
Take pride in our neighborhood and help clean it up! Our next Neighborhood Clean-Up Day is Saturday, April 26. Please join the work crew at the dead-end of Beaufain at 9:00 am to help pick up trash. Bring your work gloves; trash bags & picks will be provided.
