Change in Location for Baronial Business Meetings
After much discussion at recent business meetings about finding
a meeting place that is handicapped accessible - we are pleased to announced that we
have indeed found a location. Starting in May will we be meeting at American
Bistro - 10407 Main St. Fairfax, VA 22030. They have a small parking lot right next
to their building. Should that lot be full you may park across the street at the National
Security, Inc. building. There is also additional public parking in the gravel lot
alongside Old Town Hall. This will be our meeting place until further notice.
Additionally, please note: the May business meeting will actually be a week early,
on the 19th because of the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend and folks going to Ruby Joust.
To All Heavy Weapons Fighters of Ponte Alto and Its Environs!
A reminder to those to attend marshal activities and practice
at Fairfax County Public Schools: Fairfax County Schools do not allow any form
of real weapons, even work knives, Swiss Army knives, etc., to be brought onto
school property. Please be respectful of this rule so that we may continue having
our practices at Lemon Road Elementary School. Thank you!
Ponte Alto is working on revitalizing our online
gallery of A&S projects, and we are seeking submissions from our local
artisans! If you are interested in displaying your work, whether finished or in-progress,
send your photographs and descriptions to the MOAS.
