AROUND BRAMBLETON

INSIDE BCA

Happy HolidaysThe BCA Board of Directors and Association Staff would like to wish your and your family a wonderful holiday.

2015 Assessments – Coupon booklets have been mailed to all owners that are not actively enrolled in direct debit. Owners using an online bill-paying service to pay assessments need to update payment amounts to the new assessment rate for 2015 prior to January 1st, 2015. This applies to both private bank services and to PayLease users. It is important to note that when using any online payment service, processing time may take up to 72 hours. Please contact hoa@brambleton.org or 703-542-6263 if you have questions or need more information regarding the available payment options.   

Holiday Trash and Recycling Schedule – Brambleton collection dates will not be impacted by the holidays.  Christmas tree collection and recycling will take place on January 7th and January 14th.  Please place trees curbside by 6:00 AM.

Snow Shovelers and Blowers – BCA has been compiling a list of community teens, pre-teens and all others who are available during and after snow storms to shovel neighbors sidewalks and driveways for a fee.  We have received quite a bit of response so far.  If you are interested in being added, send your name, age, address and telephone number to hoa@brambleton.org. Once names are collected, the modified list to protect the children’s identities will be available on our website for residents to call upon when they need help with their property.

Suzanne Eaton Christmas Tree SalesThe Suzanne Eaton Christmas Tree Lot has had a phenomenal season in Brambleton selling trees, wreaths and garland.  Thanks to everyone who purchased their greenery here this year, the Eatons were able to donate $4,400 to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation earlier this week (that’s a 40% increase over last year’s donation)!  The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation is a local non-profit which focuses on the detection, treatment, education and elimination of breast cancer.  The Brambleton Town Center was happy to welcome back Suzanne Eaton Christmas Trees this year and honored to once again be the host site for this worthy cause.  By the way, trees are still available at the lot located adjacent to the Capital One Bank along Olympia Drive!  Hurry before they close for the season on Saturday, December 20th!
