Tuesday, August 6, 2019: National Night Out celebration

For our second annual National Night Out celebration, we're going big!

We will gather outside of Brookfield Elementary School at 4200 Lees Corner Road. The main event runs from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Guests requiring setup may arrive at 5pm.

Activities are scheduled to take place in front of the school at 3 locations:

  • The parking lot. As described below, we have first responders, local businesses, and civic organizations with tables set up by the parking lot. Come check them out!
  • Ballfield 1. We have some sports planned. Bring the family and prepare to have fun!
  • Rectangular Field 1. Additional games and activities are held on this field.

Meet and talk to local first responders. Look into police cars and tour fire trucks. Listen to music, enjoy free snacks, drinks, and ice cream, and take advantage of our many family activities. Good for all ages! Parents, please escort your young children.

These are some of the activities and guests we have lined up:

  • Lawn games. We will have:
    • Giant Connect Four. Try your luck at a life-sized checker game!
    • Bean Bag Toss. Match your skill, aim, and throwing ability. If you were raised in the Ohio Valley, you probably call this game Cornhole.
    • Pick-up youth soccer. What good is a ballfield without playing some ball. Play some futbol and bring your A game. When enough kids are ready, we plan to field a co-ed team.
    • Hula hoop contest. OK, we stole this activity from the Bike & Hike, but (as they sing in The Locomotion), who doesn't want to swing their hips now?
    • Probably something else, too! I will add more information if I ever remember.

  • Special Guests. Our special guests include:
    • The Fairfax County Police Department. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Get to know your local safety officers. Get a tour of a squad car. If you're lucky, they may let you try on the handcuffs. What a great environment to become familiar with the people keeping our neighborhood safe.
    • Fairfax County Fire and Rescue. Yes, you get two first responders! for the rNational Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.

    • Fairfax County Sheriff's Department. Back by popular demand, the Friends of Brookfield have arranged with the Sheriff's Deparment to run a voluntary child fingerprinting program at National Night Out. The officer can help put down identifying information for your child, including their fingerprints. These do not go on file - you hold onto them in the unlikely event that you might need them in the future.
    • The League of Women's Voters - Fairfax. Come talk to representatives of this civic organization about voter registration in Fairfax County. Forms and information in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese. Se habla español.

    Volunteers welcome. Please email to volunteer.

    Notice to businesses

    A word about the restrictions:

    Fairfax County Community Use regulations graciously allow us to use school facilities free of rental fees. This event is a non-profit event sponsored by the Friends of Brookfield civic association. Guests are to understand and agree to the rules of community use, as included in FCPS Regulation 8420. Most important is that guests must stipulate and agree that no money is to be exchanged at this event. If even a dollar changes hands, we will be assessed commercial rental fees in excess of $250. Since we are a not-for-profit organization, please respect our wishes and the regulations of the FCPS school board.

    Good turnout at our May 9th Town Hall Meeting

    Many thanks to our 3 elected representatives and 25 guests who attended our May 9th Friends of Brookfield Town Hall Meeting.

    We enjoyed news-worthy updates and spirited conversations about local and state matters, and each Guest Speaker contributed to answering questions from the audience.

    Our next Town Hall meeting will be held in autumn. Keep your eyes peeled.

    New flag at the Brookfield wall

    Thanks to volunteer Jim Rollins for replacing the American flag at the entrance to our Brookfield community at Route 50 and Lees Corner Road.

    Out of respect for Old Glory, we also put into place a new solar-powered light to illuminate the proud symbol of our nation.

    Safety tips about carbon monoxide in your home

    Thanks to Patricia Sarmiento of for the following information volunteer about safety tips related to carbon monoxide.

    Did you know that on average, nearly 440 people die from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning every year? And that’s just in the United States.

    I’ve seen a lot in the news lately about the legal side of CO poisoning, but I wanted to make sure people had access to an even more important aspect: safety and prevention. I put together some resources that I really think could help save some lives.

    The dangers of CO poisoning are real, so it’s important to have the facts.
