An Action-Packed October
We all know that October in Colonial Beach means Bike Fest. But, do you know that Bike Fest, while the biggest, is just one of many events happening in October? Other events include a Local Vocals Concert, a team participating in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's, the annual Beach to Beer 5K & 10K, the monthly Welcome to Colonial Beach Meetup, and Town Hall on Town Hill.

Please Support our Community Crisis Fund & Help Us Help Our Food Pantries
Rising prices are putting a strain on our local food pantries. Please help us help them. Through its Community Crisis Fund, the Foundation provides gift cards that the pantries can distribute as needed. These cards enable clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have, such as fresh foods, baby products, and toiletries.
To donate, use the button below to open our PayPal donation page and select Community Crisis Fund on the drop-down menu.
Welcome to Colonial Beach (WCB) October Meetup
The next WCB meetup will be on Thursday, October 20, at James Monroe Birthplace (4460 James Monroe Highway), beginning at 6;00 PM. Our guest speaker will be Gregory Deaver, Chief of Police, Colonial Beach Police Department.
These monthly meetups are a great way to get to know people, and learn about Colonial Beach and ways you can serve your community. They are held the third Thursday of the month. Visit our Events page to learn the dates and places for future meetups.
LOVE Golf Cart Ornaments
We have LOVE Golf Cart ornaments. Email us or visit our tent at various events this season. Ornaments also are available at Colonial Buzz on Colonial Ave. First come, first served until they are gone.
Ornaments are $20 each, cash or check, and make great gifts for your CBVA-loving friends and family. Net proceeds from the LOVE ornament sales go into the Foundation's Community Crisis Fund to assist our local food pantries.
Mark Your Calendars!
The Northern Neck Beach Music Festival, the Foundation's flagship fundraiser, will return in 2023 on Saturday, September 9!

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...
Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
