Post date: Jan 16, 2015 9:57:12 PM

Dear Neighbors,

2015 is staring off with a whirlwind of activities. I invite you to join the first civic association of the year. The civic association is a chance to catch up with neighbors and welcome new residents. As a civic association we strive to keep informed about opportunities available to us as residents of Arlington and advocate on issues that impact our neighborhood.

Columbia Heights West has gone through several changes in the past year, and many of the improvements are a direct results of your hard work advocating for them. Let us continue to work together to see more improvements and opportunities.

Civic association membership is open to any of the ~ 7,000 resident living within the boundaries of

Northern: 7th Road S.

Eastern: S. Arlington Mill Road

Southern: Columbia Pike

Western: S. Carlin Springs Road

Have a great weekend and hope to see you next Tuesday 20th.

Best Regards,

Lilly Mancilla, President
