Fairlington History Tour
We are collaborating the Fairlington Citizens Association again this year to conduct a walk through Fairlington history on Saturday, October 22 (10:00 – 11:30 am), starting at the North Fairlington Community Center (3006 South Abingdon Street).
We’ll visit 10 significant sites in North and South Fairlington covering the community from the colonial period forward.
If you prefer not to walk, let us know so that we can arrange for a vehicle and driver: RSVP to Patty Clark ( or 703-820-7328).

Chairs and Volunteers Needed – 2017 Home and Garden Tour
We are searching for chair(s) and volunteers to begin planning for the biennial Home and Garden Tour scheduled for May 2017.
This very popular event will again open some of Fairlington’s most inventively renovated and decorated homes and patios. If you are new to the community, there is no better way than helping with the tour to get ideas for your own home and to learn about the contractors who do this kind of work.
If – and only if – chair(s) and volunteers can be secured before January 10, 2017, a kick-off reception will be held for anyone willing to open their home for the tour and to help manage the event on Friday, January 20, 2017 in the North Fairlington Community Center (7 pm).
Interested? Please contact us or call Patty Clark at 703.820.7328.
