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:

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.

Quiet Neighborhood

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.

Share Your Light Night

Santa Claus

Thank you to Santa and his elves, and to the Mounted Police who took part in our Share Your Light Night. Everyone who participated seemed to have a great time, fellowshipping with the neighbors and munching on cookies, as they waited for Santa.

Thank you to our sponsors who made this event possible:

And thank you to the following, who hosted the Celebration Stations:

Food Drive

We collected over 50 cans of food and several boxes of rice & cereal during Share Your Light Night, which was given to Elijah's Pantry, sponsored by Atlantic Shores Baptist Church (where we hold our civic league meetings). Thank you to those who donated these items to help those who are less fortunate.

Poinsettia Fund-Raiser

Thank you to everyone who bought a poinsettia and helped support the civic league and garden club. Thank you to Carol Daniels, who headed up this fund-raiser. She did a wonderful job! The poinsettias were huge and magnificent looking - well worth the price! Everything went well, and was a success.

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!
