2020 Timeline (subject to change)

The CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Global Pandemic has unfortunately impacted our popular events schedule this year. Due to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Virginia State & Fairfax County government, the Conservancy has cancelled most of its events for 2020.

Scouting for Food

 

From now until November 21st, Burke Centre’s Cub Scout Pack and Scout BSA boys and girls Troops will be holding its annual Scouting for Food drive using collection bins throughout Burke Centre. Please donate non-perishable items in bins located at each of BCC’s community centers and our main office to help our local families through our partnership with ECHO (https://www.echo-inc.org/).  Scouts will be checking the bins daily tocollect any food that has been donated.

VOLUNTEERRECOGNITION:

While this year has been quite challenging, we know our community is full of amazing people who have pressed on to keep the neighborhoods scenic, serene, and functioning as wonderfully as they always have been.

With this in mind, the Burke Centre Conservancy staff is excitedly requesting pictures and videos of all the great things you and your fellow volunteers have done during 2020 to support our beautiful Burke Centre community.

We are all so grateful for our volunteers and want to recognize and showcase the hard work that has been done throughout the year. We typically are able to show our thanks each November with an incredible Volunteer Reception, however, the global pandemic has delayed that event this year.

For now, we are planning a virtual recognition event where we can say thanks to our volunteers, and there will be prize drawings! We need your help to do this and ask that you share your favorite volunteering photos and/or videos from this year, such as plantings around the neighborhoods, car parades (non-political), litter clean ups, results of your work to get mailbox/street light/etc. installations, etc. Submissions should be of volunteer efforts completed between the end of 2019 to present. When submitting photos, please be sure to provide some information such as the names of people in the picture, the photographer’s name, date and location where the photo was taken, and what is happening in the photo.

We can’t wait to share your accomplishments with the Burke Centre community! Submit your photos or videos to Brittani Crawley, Community Services Coordinator-Activities, at [email protected] by no later than November 27, 2020.

Stay tuned for future Conservancy event updates. Thank you for your understanding. Stay well and let us know if you have any questions.
