Many thanks to everyone who attended AHCA's 2013 Halloween parade and party!
More than 130 neighbors joined us to celebrate this spooky season, we collected 285 pounds of food for AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center) and we added 10 more members to our civic association! What a great day!
Many thanks to our sponsors - Papa John's Pizza and Simplicity Urgent Care - for their generosity! The pizza was delicious and we ate every last piece and the Simplicity donated moon bounces were enjoyed for hours non-stop.
Thanks to the volunteers from AFAC and AFC (Arlington Free Clinic) for joining us to share information about their wonderful community organizations.
Last, but certainly not least, thank you to AHCA Executive Committee members Jeanne Haggerty and Jay Moore for their help coordinating the event today. As for AHCA Secretary Megan Haydasz - our wonderful event today simply would not have happened without all of her hard work and organization - thank you Megan!!!
We hope everyone enjoyed a happy and safe Halloween!
Some of you may have already noticed the good news - the Glebe Road Bridge
Project is finally complete! It looks terrific and traffic is running
smoothly - or as smoothly as it ever does on a major thoroughfare. :)
