Sterlingfest Volunteers Needed Now

October 8, 2010

Thank you to those of you who are quickly responding.

I have the little ducklings which are fast becoming valuable political collectables. One is on Ebay already.

I am buying pizza from Joe's Pizza which is in the Safeway shopping plaza and always has a full parking lot and full house. Joe and his entire family support a lot of local charities and youth leagues too. Do I get you a slice too?

I am at booth number 16 on Saturday October 9 and want to know if you can visit me.

FORGOT TO TELL YOU where Sterlingfest is. (there are a few newcomers here, welcome!)

The parade will begin at 10:00 am at Park View High School, and travel down Sterling Boulevard to Holly Avenue. SterlingFest will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. It is held along Commerce Street and Enterprise Street adjacent to the Sterling Library & Community Center. (ONE BLOCK EAST of Sterling Blvd. behind the Post office and DMV) This is a wonderful event and features entertainment, refreshments, games, and crafts to name a few.

Park by the Big Lots, by the street by Big Lot store in the direction of Safeway.

And I am again writing to ask you if you can HELP me with a Petition to Preserve Sterling. I need five more volunteers.

My goal is to collect 200 signed petitions at Sterlingfest in support of stronger enforcement of overcrowded houses in Sterling and Loudoun County.

I know you very busy but I will buy you lunch (pizza) if you can HELP me Saturday and if it will help, I offer you one of the little yellow rubber ducks as an incentive. (being hailed on websites and blogs).

Can you join me at booth number 16 between 11 am and five pm on Saturday Oct. 9 and HELP me obtain signatures on the Petition to Preserve Sterling for an hour? Let me know.

Hit reply and add the word "Yes, will " and say "HELP at Sterlingfest!" Thank you.


Last weekend 2 major events benefiting the Republican party were held. Several conservative women hosted these two events on two separate days in Loudoun County. Sterling and Loudoun are leading the national trend.

WOLF EVENT October 15

GOP Chairman Mark Sell, national GOPer Jo-ann Chase and mega celebrity fundraiser Liz Mills, who organized the largest fundraiser ever for Bob Marshall, are pushing an even bigger fundraiser for Frank Wolf to replace the stolen Wolf signs which number in the 1000s for Friday, October 15, 2010 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Belmont Country Club 19661 Belmont Manor Lane Ashburn, Virginia. Its $150 per person. But Chase and Mills will organize a success.

The fact is that conservative women are running major events in Loudoun for the Republican party. That's got liberals mad as a hatter in Alice in Wonderland. Jumping up and down. Who are some of these conservative women?

A Sterling GOP Leader

For decades she has been the conservative voice.

We have a lady, Margi Wallo as our Sterling District GOP chairlady and she has been holding packed houses 2nd Tuesday evenings of each month since August called "Sterling Republican Club night" at Lucia's. The next meeting hosted by Margi Wallo is Tuesday, October 12 at Lucia's over by Dranesville Road and Leesburg Pike next to Glory Days Grill.

A Sterling Planning Commissioner

She loves Sterling and has raised her family here.

Helena Syska, who represents the Sterling District on the Loudoun County Planning Commission for 7 years, has been involved in the community for several decades. She has served in capacities of founder, co-founder, member and/or corporate board director of SPIRIT, Neighborhood Awareness Group, Loudoun County Open Space Advisory Committee, and the Loudoun County Workforce Development Alliance.

She was selected as Citizen of the Year in 1998 by the Eastern Loudoun Times, was the 1991 recipient of the Capital Leadership Award, and received the Outstanding Volunteer Award from the Town of Herndon in 1989.

Mrs. Syska has 27 years of experience in education and consulting, and served as the Executive Director of the Loudoun Education Foundation. She currently teaches middle school science and math in a parochial school and serves on various school and diocesan committees.


Sterling turned out for her and elected her.

Jo-anne Chase is a national GOPer and is a GOP local leader too. She has devoted her life to conservative politics since her teenage years in Puerto Rico, then became a member of the state central commitee in South Carolina and serves on the current Virginia Republican Party state central committee. She has 30 years of leading on hispanic and minority issues.

Jo-anne Chase got the largest number of votes at a tenth district convention at her first contest for party office to be elected state central committee and she has many other credentials for other groups which she has assisted or led.

HISTORIC: Upcoming 2 Nights Public Input October 12 and 13 at 7 p.m.
More Access To Claude Moore Park from Sterling Park

Its not posted on the home page of the Loudoun County website or in any news releases yet.

But I have been told letters are going out inviting the public (that's you) to comment on proposed pedestrian paths INTO Claude Moore Park from the residential areas of Sterling Park, throughout the park and to facilitate walkers on all sides.

At last we have a plan to give access to Sterling's Park that borders our neighborhoods.

The "public input" will explain the paths and the scope of the current recommendations which include 2 new paths from established Sterling neighborhoods which have had little but dirt footpaths prevously into the park. We will now be connected with a bike and pedestrian path to the park.

Option A -Construction of a multi-use trail along the access road from W. Juniper Avenue to the Football Field Parking Lot.

Option B -Installation of a signaled crosswalk at the intersection of Church Road and Aspen Avenue N.

There will be two separate meetings at 7 p.m. on Tuesday October 12th and Wednesday October 13th at the Claude Moore Recreation Center to discuss these plans.
