Holiday Lights in Westover Village

WVCA is excited to announce a special initiative! This year, we are launching a heartfelt fundraiser aimed at bringing the holiday spirit to our beloved community. We have a wonderful plan to adorn Westover Village (along Washington Boulevard and between McKinley Road and N Longfellow Street|) with dazzling holiday lights on the business rooftops and street lamp posts, transforming our neighborhood into a winter wonderland for all to enjoy. To make this vision a reality, we need your support! Your contributions will go directly towards leasing and installing these festive decorations, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone during the holiday season. Together, we can make Westover Village shine even brighter this year. Let’s come together and make our community sparkle with holiday cheer. Your generosity and participation will make all the difference!

2018 WVCA Membership Dues

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!
