REMINDER: The Suburban Acres Civic League will not have a meeting on November 12th since Norfolk Public Schools and all the other nearby private schools are closed for Veterans Day holiday. Enjoy the day and give thanks to all the veterans who have served and protected our county.
Please plan to come to the league’s annual potluck holiday party on December 10th. We will have a joint meeting with the Wards Corner Civic League, with music provided by the Norfolk Jazz Band.
The SACL held its Adopt-a-Spot event on October 20th, 2018. Thanks to everyone that came out to help pick up trash from Suburban Park Elementary to the Tinee Giant along Thole Street. The weather was rather rotten, which understandably kept some folks away, but we still picked up a lot of trash. We are looking forward to the next Adopt-a-Spot event!
This weekend, don’t forget to come out and pitch in to clean up Suburban Acres!
Saturday, October 20, 2018, the Suburban Acres Civic League is hosting our Adopt-a-Spot event. Suburban Acres neighbors will gather to clean up trash in the areas of Suburban Park Elementary School and all the way down Thole St. to the Tinee Giant. Weather permitting, of course! We will meet at Suburban Park Elementary School at 9 AM.
Bring your friends and family and help keep your community clean in fellowship with your neighbors.
Our last Adopt-a-Spot in August was a success with great turnout! Let’s make this one another great success! The forecast calls for a beautiful, crisp, fall morning.
The civic league recognized Community Resource Officer, William Old III, for his service to our community at the October 2018 league meeting. A letter of commendation from the league to the Norfolk Chief of Police, Larry Boone, was read by Board Director, Karen Mayne. President Louie Gabriel read the letter of appreciation the league received in response from Chief Boone. The league’s Board of Directors presented Officer Old with a gift card to Your Pie restaurant. (No gift card to Crispy Cream or Dunkin Donuts!)
A crowd of 50 – 60 people attended the October 8, 2018 meeting, including neighbors from nearby civic leagues and teachers from Suburban Park Elementary. Guest speaker Elaine Luria, candidate for the Second Congressional District in the November election, spoke about her priorities and answered questions. Thanks to everyone who brought the delicious slow-cooked dishes, cornbread, and desserts.
Winners of the Crockpot Cook-off were: 1st place – Joan Wilson; 2nd Place – Mark Burnett; 3rd Place – Gabe Kinnison.
