LCPS Asks Residents to be Watchful

Loudoun County Public Schools has contacted Willowsford and asked if residents would be alert to potential trespass at the Lightridge High School site. Last weekend a group of teens were seen at the site but scattered when the sheriff’s patrol arrived. The site is a fully active construction site. It is a dangerous area to be wandering about and LCPS does not want anyone to get hurt. The property is gated and posted for no trespass. While safety is most important it is also noted that anyone caught trespassing could face charges and expenses for damages. Unfortunately, this has happened at other LCPS sites and violators were prosecuted. LCPS is not suggesting that residents from Willowsford were on the site. LCPS is simply asking the community to be alert and report anything suspicious. Thank you in advance for your assistance!  

Firearms Hunt: Dec. 3rd-7th in The Greens

The Greens trails will be CLOSED Tuesday, December 3rd through Saturday, December 7th for the Deer Management Program muzzleloader and shotgun hunt. Residents must observe all trail closure signs. Trails will reopen Sunday, December 8th. 

Deer management program information including safety information, hunting guidelines, schedules and maps, can be found in the Document Center of the Willowsford Conservancy website here. Please contact info@willowsfordconservancy.org with questions or for assistance with your Conservancy website login.

Bunco Babes

Thursday, December 5th at 7 PM at Sycamore House. It’s time for our annual Christmas Ornament Exchange. We will be playing the Thieving Santa game and then a round of Left-Center-Right. It’s easy to learn if you’ve never played!

Please bring the following: 

  • A wrapped ornament with an approximate value of $15 - (This is NOT a white elephant gift, you’ll want to bring something DESIRABLE that everyone will want.)
  • Dessert or Appetizer: If your last name starts with A-M, try to bring an appetizer and N – Z a dessert. This is just a guideline so we don’t end up with all desserts!
  • Anything you’d like to drink as it's BYOB
  • Three $5 bills for LCR  

This is a great opportunity to have some holiday fun, and be introduced to the Bunco Babes if you’ve never been brave enough to join us during our monthly games. Hope to see you there! Join the Willowsford Bunco Babes Facebook page for more information.
