Charlestowne Area Civic League
Objectives & Purpose
A. The purpose of this League shall be to encourage participation in all activities that have to do with the civic, social, and cultural betterment of the Charlestowne Area.
B. To uphold the principles of good government and take an active interest in the affairs concerning the Charlestowne Area and the City of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
C. To cooperate with the other organizations engaged in the furthering of civic affairs.
Charlestowne is composed of four subdivisions:
- Charlestowne East
- Charlestowne Lakes
- Charlestowne Woods
There is also a Charlestowne Lakes South, located a little farther down Centerville Turnpike, but it is not part of our Civic League. For more information concerning Charlestowne Lakes South, check out their website at http://clsouthcl.com.
Due to our close proximity to the Christian Broadcasting Network (which is in a No-Fly Zone), we very rarely hear any jet noise either.

The civic league will be selling poinsettias again this year as a fund raiser. We need to raise money for an entrance sign for Beaufain & Lynnhaven when construction is complete. The poinsettias we sold last year were absolutely gorgeous, so we will be getting them from the same company. We are offering red poinsettias in 8" foil-covered pots for $15 each. You can place your order several ways.

Community Yard Sale
The dates for our next community-wide yard sale are October 10 & 17. Anyone can participate. The civic league will advertise, while you do the rest in your own yard. Happy shopping!
The civic league is planning another Bake Sale, since the last one went so well. It is scheduled for October 10 with a rain date of October 17, at 1801 Blue Knob Rd, from 8 am to 1 pm, just two houses down from the Plant Sale. We need volunteers to help out at the sale, as well as provide baked goods. If interested please contact Charlene Geiger at 479-2038.
Meet at the dead-end of Beaufain on Saturday, Sept. 19 to help clean up our neighborhood. Bring your work gloves, everything else will be provided.

The money goes toward the entrance signs (repair and landscaping around them), the newsletters, Neighborhood Watch, annual picnics, Share Your Light Night, neighborhood clean-up supplies, advertisement for our yard sales & meetings, and CCO dues, among other things.
