Clean up Day
by Roy Warner
This year’s annual Kings Park “Clean Up Day” will be held Saturday, May 5th from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Large trucks from Fairfax County will be stationed in the parking lot by the basketball courts off the Trafalgar Court entrance to KP Park for disposal of large items that trash companies will not pick up. You can take your items directly to the trucks at Trafalgar or call Roy Warner to schedule a pick up by neighborhood volunteers. More volunteers are needed so please contact Roy if you can help (and re-member to bring gloves!). The Kings Park Civic Association will rent at least two 14’ U-Haul trucks to pick up your large items and deliver them to the county trucks but you must call at least a week in advance to schedule a pick up.
KPCA dues make this service possible. KPCA membership is required if you need help with your large items. Volunteers will have membership forms with them when they pick up items from your home, so you can join the KPCA that day if you have not yet done so.
Our community is indebted to all those who have helped in years past. We are grateful to all our volunteers for their assistance. Call Roy at 703-250-5328 to volunteer or schedule a pick up. Please do not wait until the last minute as we cannot honor last minute requests for help. Thank you.
Acceptable Items (OK) - Sofa, Sofa beds, Refrigerators, Freezers, Sheds (already broken down), and Other large items your trash company will not pick up.
Unacceptable Items (Not OK) - Construction materials(i.e dry wall), Flooring materials, Paint, Used motor oil and Tires.
4th of July Parade and Concert
Please join your community for some family fun at the traditional Kings Park 4th of July Parade and Picnic. The King Park Civic Association has organized this event for many years, and we are hoping for the best turnout ever this year.
The parade line up begins in front of Kings Park Elementary School at 10:30 AM on July 4th. All bike riders, scooter riders, skate boarders, wagon pullers, stroller pushers, wheel chair riders or anyone else is encouraged to join the fun event! If you have a classic or cool car, please join the parade. All vehicles should stage in the parking area of the school near the cafeteria entrance.
The parade will begin promptly at 11:00 AM. Volunteer safety personnel will be available along the route to help ensure everyone’s safety. All parade participants are asked to stay behind the fire truck.
Once you arrive at Kings Park Park, you will be treated to patriotic music from our very own Kings Park Band. Don't forget to bring a chair so you can listen in comfort. Cold drinks, hot dogs, and chips will be sold.
We still need volunteers to assist with set-up, selling food and clean-up. If you’d like to help out with the parade or picnic, please contact Susan Metcalf at Susan.Metcalf@verizon.net.
