August / September 2000

The Annual Burke CARES Potluck, Sunday,  September 10, was a big success, with a record turnout. Members of the Board of Trustees for the Burke Centre Conservancy received "Thank You" certificates for their support of Burke CARES.  Thanks to all for bringing food and making it a big success.

Thanks to Camp Rising Hope: Burke United Methodist Church opened its summer Camp Rising Hope to Burke Ctnter youngsters this year. Thanks to Associate Pastors Karen Gardner and Pam Horner. Thanks also to Cathy Burton, Darlene Clemens and Fern True for making the day possible 

Faith Communities Collaborate: Representatives from all three of the faith communities in Burke Centre - Burke Presbyterian Church, Burke United Methodist Church, and Knollwood Community Church - have collaborated with Burke CARES and Fairfax County representatives to find ways to work together to meet the needs of members of the community most in need. If your faith community would be interested in working with us, please call 703-425-0423 

Volunteers needed: moving crew members and those willing to lend vans and trucks to transport donated furniture and other bulky items

More space needed

We have outgrown our present space in Burke Centre. Do you know of other space in Burke Centre (preferable) or another suitable location? 

If you can help with any of these issues, please call: 703-425-0423

For those of you who have helped in the past and who continue to help Burke CARES, thanks again.
