LVCA needs a volunteer to deliver the Lyon Village Bulletin to 46 houses bordered by Key Blvd., Lee Hwy, N Wayne, and N Barton Street. The Bulletin is published 10 times a year: Jan-Dec (except July & Aug). This is a great public service opportunity for a teen or great exercise for any adult. To volunteer, please email Rick Schweigert at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 703-447-2070.
Come be a part of the fun on Thursday, July 4, for our annual parade and picnic.
Parade 11 am
The parade will begin promptly at 11:00am at the corner of Key Blvd. and Highland St. Line up on 17th St., just off of Highland Street starting at 10:30am. The parade will travel east on Key Blvd. to Edgewood St., where it will turn left to continue along Edgewood St. to the Lyon Village Park.
Included in the parade will be antique cars, and police and fire vehicles. As usual, the antique cars and fire trucks will remain after the parade so everyone can get a closer look. If you would like to drive your antique car in the parade, please email John Carten at GJCarten@verizon.net.
Following the parade, we will gather in the park for a picnic. We ask that you bring a dish to share or your own picnic and beverages. We will provide water. Due to fewer volunteers, we are modifying the format this year to make it less labor intensive. This does not mean, however, that we will have any less fun; it just requires folks to plan ahead and bring along a dish to share or your own picnic. You can drop off a dish to share ahead of the parade at the Park.
To volunteer to help with the picnic, kids games or clean-up, please email Tom Harrison at Tom1@outlook.com or Tony Abreu at Tony.Abreu@gmail.com.

Recently there have been some bicycle thefts in the Clarendon area. Protect your bike from theft. U-locks are the most effective locks to use. When leaving your bike in a public area always secure the bike to a bike rack or other immovable object even if just for a short time. When at home, secure your bike in a safe location such as a locked garage or other inside location.
Work has begun on the old Red Top Cab site bounded by N. Hudson, N. Irving, and N. 13th Streets.The property is called Alexan Clarendon and is a 330-unit apartment complex. The developer is Trammell Crow Residential. The contractor is John Moriarity. Demolition started in April. Excavation should start in June. The expected completion date is April 2021. Construction hours are weekdays: 7:00am to 6:30pm. Weekends and holidays the hours are 10:00am to 6:30pm. The June construction work will include pile driving, the loudest part of the project.
The Arlington County Board approved a plan to replace the aging commercial buildings on the northwest corner of Washington Blvd and Kirkwood Rd with a seven-story apartment building. The site is home to the former Sport & Health Club fitness center, two single-story commercial office buildings, and the Specialty Services auto service building. All those buildings will be demolished. The new building will have an entry lobby on Washington Boulevard, a tree- shaded interior courtyard, and an underground 198-space parking garage.
Next phase of construction on the south side of Clarendon Circle starts June 3. Work will take about six weeks, weather permitting. Crews are expected to start working near the Silver Diner and then progress toward the Wells Fargo Bank.
