Join us on Saturday, October 16th, 2021 @ 1pm for a day of fun, food, give-a-ways, and music! Meet us at Creekside Village Community Center (7941 Janna Lee Avenue) to talk to organizations about how they can support you in making your community better!

Whether you bring along your family and friends, or you just swing by along, enjoy family-friendly activities by our partners. Learn about the many things going on in your area — such as the Route 1 bus rapid transit plan and the new Lee District Community Center — and learn how you can get involved or take advantage of opportunities.

Come get to know our many partners who work with us along the Richmond Highway corridor including United Community, Minority Tech Foundation, Friends of Little Hunting Creek, Fairfax NAACP, and several Fairfax County partners including Neighborhood & Community Services, Urban Forest Management Division, and Northern Virginia Soil & Water Conservation District. Casey Trees will also be on hand to talk about the free, newly planted trees communities have gotten as part of a pilot project partnership with Fairfax County!

And, if you’re lucky, you’ll be there when Supervisor Lusk, Lee District’s Supervisor on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, stops by and you’ll get to say hello as well.

RSVPs are not required, but we’d love to know if you plan to swing by.

Masks will be required for all participants.

This event is the last of four events as the communities of Creekside Village and Colchester Towne, in partnership with United Community and Audubon Naturalist Society, are hosting the Water Keepers of Little Hunting Creek program. All are welcome! RSVP for the other Water Keepers of Little Hunting Creek event here. Join us and become a water keeper!

What’s a water keeper? Everyone needs water, and everyone can help protect our rights to clean water. If you live along the Route 1 Corridor in Fairfax County, learn about the waters that flow through your community and how people and our streams can help one another be healthy.
