This year’s theme is "Volunteering Promotes Healthy & Stable Communities." More than 250 people attended last year’s conference. Register online at or call Neighborhood Services Coordinator Christen Zenich at 703-257-8315.

Workshops for adults include “Volunteering Can Lead You to a New Career,” “Social Networking for Neighborhoods,” “Common Enemy: HOA Boards vs. Residents,” “Landlord Round Table,” and “Modification Program for Mortgages in Distress.”

Activities for youth include a Thanksgiving turkey craft, “My Defining Moment” Youth Café, basketball clinic with Coach Rob Weaver of Dream Basketball, and creating T-shirts for Teddy bears that will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Oncology Unit in memory of Sey-j Landsdowne, a Boys & Girls Club member in Manassas who passed away this summer of leukemia.

Submit a photo of your pet now to Christen Zenich at for the Neighborhood Pet contest and tell, in 100 words or less, why your pet is a good neighbor. Grooming and costumes are encouraged, and the top three winners will receive a prize.

Registration closes on November 10. Admission is free, but please consider donating either arts & crafts supplies for the Boys & Girls Club or pet food for the City of Manassas Animal Shelter.
