2018 Westover Village Civic Association Membership Dues Are Now Due
In order to support the activities and events of the Westover Village Civic Association, we need to collect dues from our members. This pays for the expenses we incur in the work of our civic association, such as costs for the Westover Easter egg hunt, dues for our participation in the county Civic Federation, rental of our civic association PO box and charges for our internet domain name. WVCA membership dues are $15.00 per household per year. Members must be current with their dues to vote on issues at WVCA meetings.
There are several ways in which you can pay your dues. The easiest is to use the ‘Pay Dues Online’ entries on the upper right-hand side of this page to pay by Paypal or credit card. You can also can pay your dues by sending a check for $15.00 payable to the Westover Village Civic Association to PO Box 5604, Arlington, VA, 22205 or by simply bringing your payment when you attend the next WVCA community meeting.
Thanks so much for your continued support of the work of the Westover Village Civic Association!
Come join your friends and neighbors for an ice cream social Sunday, October 22 at 2 pm on the field next to Reed School. Kids of all ages are welcome to attend in costume, though it is not required. This is our main social event of the fall as we will not organize a Halloween parade this year.
We will have our next civic association meeting on Wednesday, November 15 at 7PM in the large conference room at the Westover Library. We will discuss the upcoming renovations and conversion of the Reed School to an elementary school, provide an update on affordable housing and other topics of interest to the community.
Curious about how the Westover Market evolved into the Westover Beer Garden?

During our meeting we will discuss a variety of topics of importance to our community:
- Approval of changes to our civic association by-laws
- Status of Neighborhood Conservation Plan and opportunities to help develop it
- Plans for candidate night(s) for School Board and County Board candidates
- Opportunities for community involvement to influence decisions affecting our area such as Reed School future, bike lanes on Washington Blvd., community facilities round tables, and school enrollment/transfer policies and others
- Annual Easter Egg Hunt – Tentatively April 8
- Westover Market and Beer Garden proposal for additional music times
We look forward to seeing you next week.

Arlington Magazine recently wrote about one of the Westover Farmer’s Market vendors, “Bubby’s Babkas.”
Thanks to neighbor Hope Miller, the Westover Village Civic Association is going on line in a big way with new Westover pages on Nextdoor and Facebook. These will allow all Westover residents to communicate with each other, and find out about talented plumbers, roofers, and other handy folks in the area, or tips on tasty sushi or Mexican food around here.
