Fore Kids Golf Tournament

What: Fore Kids Golf Tournament

When: Thursday, Sept. 21. Shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Cost: $320/team of four. Boxed lunches will be provided.

How to signup: Form a team of four and signup by clicking on the green Fore Kids Golf Tournament button on PCASA.org or contact Will Merritt ([email protected]).

The Fore Kids Golf Tournament is open to all golfers and is hosted by VDOT’s Culpeper District Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign  (CVC) Committee, which is a voluntary charitable giving program for state employees that raises funds for numerous nonprofit health and humanitarian organizations throughout the state of Virginia.

This tournament will benefit Piedmont CASA, which provides and supports trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. Last year, they served 294 boys and girls – more than ever before. Research shows that children with CASA Volunteers spend less time in court, less time in foster homes, obtain more medical care, do better in school, and find safe and permanent homes faster – all keys to breaking the debilitating cycle of abuse and neglect. No other organization performs this service and they do not charge fees.

Break-ins in Crozet

I hate posting things like this. Let’s watch out for each other, Crozet.

Received Wednesday and posted on Facebook & Twitter …

I was just at the Crozet Park and spoke with an officer that had responded to a car break in that happened sometime in the parking lot there today. Back passenger window was broken out and items were taken. No other reports from The Crozet Park at this time but officer said similar occurrence today at the stores across 250 from Harris Teeter. Sounded like broken window and items in plain view taken from car ( maybe parked outside Credit Union). I tried to get a bit of info without interfering with upset victim making report. You might want to check out the details, but this might be worth an alert message to our list. Officer indicating spreading the word would be a good idea.

Help with the Independence Day Celebrations!

Crozet Fireworks & Independence Day Celebration - 2014

From the Crozet Community Association:

They need your help for an hour or two on July 5. Below is the website to sign-up to help with the Crozet Independence Day Celebration (CIDC) next Saturday, July 5, between 5PM to 10PM. There are a variety of tasks and time slots. Most of the time slots are only an hour – so there’s lots of ways to help and still enjoy the event. When you sign-up it will ask for your name, email and, optionally phone number. No one else can see your email and phone. We promise we won’t share it. It’s helpful for us to have it if something happens and we need to let you know about a last minute change.

We urge church groups, civic and neighborhood associations to sign-up. Crozet Trails Crew already has volunteered to staff one spot the whole evening! Let’s see which group can have the most volunteers!

To sign up, go here.

With your help, we can make this Crozet Independence Day celebration the best ever!
