Successful “Starting a Local Village” Workshop

Group 1There was a great turn-out for the first Arlington Neighborhood Villages (ANV) “Starting a Local Village” Workshop on January 29th.  More than 30 people, representing 14 Arlington neighborhoods, attended the workshop.

The  audience, which included people from neighborhoods with single-family homes and people who live in condominiums and apartment buildings, learned that ANV’s services and activities are designed to meet the needs of both groups.

ElaineC SpeakingWorkshop participants heard about and discussed the steps suggested for neighborhoods to get local villages up and going in their areas, and what it means to be part of ANV.  The session ended with a discussion of the next steps and plans for follow-up workshops.

ANV will offer more “Starting a Local Village” Workshops in the Spring.  If you missed this session, please stay in touch!   Contact us at localvillages@arlnvil.org for more information.

We’ll look forward to seeing you at the next workshop.
