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.

- Community Yard Sale/Bake Sale - Oct. 15

- Community Yard Sale - Oct. 22
- Civic League Meeting - November 1 - WEEK EARLY DUE TO ELECTIONS!
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 in the past have been absolutely gorgeous, so
we will be getting them from the same company. We will be
offering both red and pink* poinsettias in 8" foil-covered pots for $15 each. (The nursery has a
limited supply of pink poinsettias, so they cannot guarantee that we will receive as many as we
order. However they will substitute a red one in its place if they run out. However we are hoping
that by placing our order early that we will be able to obtain all the pinks ones that you want.)
You can place your order several ways.
- Send an email to CACL@cox.net
- Call Carol Daniels at 479-1179
- Or pay below with PayPal
Be sure to provide your name, address, phone, and number of plants if using one of the first two options. Payment can then be dropped off with any of the board members or at our meeting on November 10. Make checks payable to CACL. Orders and payment are due by November 10. Poinsettias will arrive near the end of November. We will call you when your order is ready for pick-up.
Community Yard Sale / Bake Sale
Our next yard sale is planned for Saturday, October 15 & 22. The civic league will advertise; you hold your own sale in your own yard.
The civic league bake sale will be held October 15, at 1801 Blue Knob Rd., from 8 am to 1 pm. A rain date of October 22 is planned. We need volunteers to help out at the sale, as well as bake. If you can help, contact Carol at 479-1179or CACL@cox.net.
Civic League Meeting
Our next civic league meeting will be held November 1 at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church at 7 pm. It would normally have fallen on Election Day, so we have moved it forward. We will be voting on next year's officers. Please plan to attend.
Have You Paid Your Dues?!
Dues are $15 per year per family, due in January. 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. It is a small investment for a nicer neighborhood!
