Inside This Issue
I can’t believe that fall is already here. The summer went by so fast. I hope that
everyone had a wonderful 2013 so far. We haven’t had a newsletter in a while, so I
want to take a few minutes to catch you up. Our Fourth of July Picnic and Parade was an overwhelming success. It has never been so well attended. The Walker's Notice entertainment and the parade were exceptional and this was the first year that we actually ran out of food. It was a great day of fellowship and community spirit. I Lawn Signs offer a very heartfelt thanks to the dedicated volunteers who work so hard to make this event a success. We couldn’t do it without you.
Light Rail Pub. Notice You also may have heard that the Chesopeian Colony SSD project was approved by the Virginia Beach City Council. The project will be planned by the City and we New Neighbors should be getting updates as to the actual construction plan and schedule as they become available. Please go to our website for more information about the project Fun Things to do and for future updates.
Halloween Notice Halloween is coming up. As we do each year, we are planning for our community Halloween party. Please consider volunteering to help with set up/clean up, and judging. Contact information for volunteering can be found in other sections of this Police News Release newsletter.
Garden Club While I am on the subject, please consider becoming more involved with your Civic League. Why not consider joining the Civic League Board. We have several folks that will be rotating off this year and we will need enthusiastic replacements.
Finally, I look forward to seeing you at the next Civic League meeting. Have a safe The next Civic League fall and winter season. The Civic League Board will be back in full swing after the meeting will be held on holidays.
Tuesday, Oct. 8th Warm regards to you all, at 7:00 PM at the Foundry United Methodist
Tacky Lawn Signs We love them, but neighbors hate them. Whether it’s promoting a political candidate, advertising a yard sale, or citing a contractor’s business, these wellintended lawn accessories lose their interest and favored status after about a week.
Some remain visible long after their cause has passed, suggesting that the homeowner has forgotten about them (but the neighbors have not.) Love them or not, we can all agree that they are not decorative. So… Use them, then remove them. Think Colony Pride.

That's the speed limit in the Colony, and for good reason. We have no sidewalks, but have a multitude of bicyclists, walkers, animals being exercised, and children on boards and skates. Please do not be the first in many years to strike a neighbor with your car.

Fall has just arrived and for the Garden Club, this is not only the beginning of our club year, but time for new projects and a new dressing up for autumn/winter flowers at our beautiful entrance. The entrance has been spectacular this past season and I would like to thank all of our members who contributed to designing, planting and maintaining the bushes, beds and flowers. A special thanks to our Beautification Chairman, Carol Taylor and her assistant Annette Thompson. Thanks to the Civic League for their participation in the mulching and watering. Winter demands a change because to have continual blooms, we need to supplement our perennial gardens with seasonal annuals, so keep your eyes out for the new look coming up within the next month for our fall/winter season.
We ended our season on June 22nd with a pot luck supper “garden party” with spouses and some guests at the home of Betty and Bill Kennedy on Cattayle Run. The weather that night was absolutely perfect with the full moon shining at its largest for the whole year (the Equinox). A really special treat! Fun was had by all. Deb Ellis, a new member, added her artistic touch by helping with the hostess in arranging flowers throughout the house.
Our first fall meeting was a luncheon at the Princess Anne Country Club on the 2nd Thursday in September followed by a speaker who spoke to us on “Color in Your Autumn Landscape.” Our next meeting will be an evening meeting at the home of Jennifer Coleman on Thursday evening October 10th at 6:00 pm. Our meeting is preceded by a social hour with snacks and followed by the speaker. The topic will be “Decorating with Plants. Everyone brings a snack.
We are pleased to have seen new younger members join our ranks and hope that we will have more. The Garden Club is open to anyone who would like to join. The Club is made up of all ages. We have gone to a new schedule with monthly meetings altering between daytime and nighttime to accommodate the moms with younger children and those who work. We have an annual holiday social and summer garden party.
The dues are only $35 a year! A bargain!
If anyone is interested in joining you can call either Betty Kennedy at 757-340-8975 or Jeanie Hearst at 757-486-5337.
