Civic League General Membership Meeting -
May 01, 2019

Note - this is a date change from 17 Apr

Our next Civic League General Membership Meeting is now scheduled for Wednesday, 01 May 2019 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Kempsville Meadows Elementary School on Edwin Drive.

In addition to discussing general civic league orders of business, we host one to two guest presenters at each meeting, selected to speak on topics relevant to our residents, the neighborhood, and the city.

Topics for this meeting are:

  • An update on a Sidewalk Proposal for Edwin Drive. At the request of a number of residents, we tasked the Civic League Board of Trustees to explore this as a possibility. Jim Stone will update the membership on what we have found out so far, and possible next steps, as well as how we will respond to the voices of affected owners should this move forward. We hope to have a representative from the Virginia Beach Public Works, Traffic Engineering on hand to answer any additional questions or concerns.
  • Neighborhood Watch Program. Pat Molnar will provide an update on this important program, how it works, and how you can become involved.
  • Mike Anderson will ask for your support in soliciting new members of the Civic League Board of Trustees.   Several current members’ terms are expiring and we would welcome new members willing to help out on our Board of Trustees. It does not take up a lot of time, and you would be contributing to our great neighborhood in doing so.

We anticipate this to be a robust and interesting program agenda. We hope you will plan to make it to this meeting. Come, please, and bring a neighbor. See you there!!

To make suggestions for additional guest speakers/ topics, you may contact Jim Stone at j.b.stone@verizon.net, or by using the “Contact Us” page on the Larkspur Civic League Web Site https://larkspurvb.club/.

Civic League General Membership Meeting - September 18, 2019

The third General Membership Meeting of the year is scheduled for 18 April 2018.

We expect the program to include a presentation on wills and trusts, and possibly other retirement planning topics, which should be of interest to many in the neighborhood and especially our seniors.  More to follow as this firms up in the next several months.

 Trick or Treat Court Get-together - October 31, 2018

A group of neighbors decided to get out and mingle this past Halloween as they have for several in the past.  Great times were had by all and our neighborhood was rather generous with the candy this year.  This pre-Trick or Treat get together may definitely become an annual event. Thank you to all who participated and to all the neighbors who participated in decorating and handing out candy.  Our relationships, friendships and involvement really are what make Larkspur the best neighborhood in Virginia Beach.
