Save Tysons Last Forest Block Party

What happens when community members need to show their support to Save Tysons Last Forest?  They organize a block party, invite all the Vienna, Fairfax, and state leaders, give guided tours, and hold a successful rally!

Our community knows how to throw a block party!

Powerful Participants

We invite everyone we know!  Participants included Fairfax County Chairman Sharon Bulova, Fairfax Supervisor Cathy Hudgins, VA Senator Chap Petersen, VA Delegate Barbara Comstock (now Congress Member), VA Delegate Mark Keam, and Vienna Town Councilmember Carey Sienicki. We lead them on tours of Tysons Last Forest, educated them, and rallied with them!

Serious Preparations

We made signs, Neighborhood Coalition graphics, and posters.

Community Spirit

Then we continued our block party into the night!  The kids sang karaoke and the adults sang accompanied by piano and guitar.  A good time was had by all!
