More Happy Hours, more events!

We have scheduled happy hours for August 14 and September 20. In addition we are going to have our regular Halloween Hayride and Christmas caroling.  Check the schedule for exact dates and time.  Happy Hour events starts at 5:30PM, till whenever.  The Pavilion property, fire pit, picnic area are reserved for the events starting at 5:00PM on those days. If you are planning to fish or kayak/canoe, we ask that you refrain from walking through the Pavilion / Picnic area.

These BRFCA sponsored events are open to all residents and owners of Broad Run Farms Subdivision.  If you are not a member, please join.  If you don't want to join, we suggest that you contribute $20.00 per person up to $50.00 when you might as well be a member. Happy hours are BYOB and bring a dish events, but it's been rumored that there could be a keg of beer, hot dogs, maybe some other grilled items and soft drinks. See the schedule or BRFCA NextDoor and Facebook web sites for the latest info.

Work at the Pavilion-Creek Property

Volunteers have replaced the two rotted benches, a new address sign has been installed and some refinements made to the electrical system. New lights were installed but are not yet working.  Electricity and the fan with light are available for 2024 paid members.  We request a donation of $20.00 for use of the electricity for your event. We are working on replacing the picnic grille with a larger one.

Be aware that the properties close at DARK except by BRFCA permission, and ACTIVE VIDEO SURVEILLANCE is in effect at the Pavilion.

New and Renewal Memberships continue to be accepted.  See the Membership & Dues page for details. If you have been a member and plan to renew, please hurry and send in your dues.  Membership is through December 31 of each year. If you have a key, you must continue your membership to legally use the Boat Ramp-River property.

Please see BRFCA Properties for additional details.  Membership has many advantages, including entitling you you to help plan our events, use the boat ramp, use all the facilities available at the Pavilion extending after dark, and having input for the future use of the BRFCA properties.  Although not tax deductible, your dues are 100% used for maintaining and supporting the properties and for the events we all enjoy. There are many volunteers, sponsors, and contributors in our wonderful subdivision. Please help out by joining our Association and volunteering to help with events.

 Remember, our Civic Association does not control the use of your property like an HOA.  Join us and have fun in 2024!

The Broad Run Farms Civic Association (BRFCA) is a 501(c)7 volunteer organization that works to help our neighborhood be a great place to live. We are a unique, eclectic subdivision in the fact that we do not have a Homeowners' Association (HOA) with its associated By-Laws, Architectural Review Board and their constraints.  The Civic Association is a great organization and we are stronger as a whole than as individual residents. Your Civic Association Dues are spent to improve our neighborhood and help our neighbors. We do not represent the neighborhood, but we are a venue for events and community information. The BRFCA has two major goals:

First, the Association maintains two BRFCA owned properties, one, the Pavilion property, on Broad Run Drive and the other, a boat ramp on the Potomac River, for Civic Association members to enjoy. We also hold neighborhood events like our summer picnic, chili cook-off and a Halloween party. We have provided a community scholarship to graduating high school seniors.  In the past, we have been charitable to our community by providing funds for things like printer cartridges to the schools that teach our children and have contributed to Loudoun Interfaith to help those in need during the holiday season. We have also donated to the Sterling Volunteer Fire Department. The Board with the membership's input determine how dues and donations will be used. 

Second, but no less important, we keep residents informed on issues that arise that could affect our neighborhood at County, State and Federal levels. Although we do not represent you directly, we do give you a venue where you can come together as a community for what is best for our neighborhood. Strength in numbers has been and will continue to be beneficial to our Association.

The Association holds monthly meetings on the second Wednesday, usually at the Pavilion (creek) property at 7pm. An alternate location is Galilee United Methodist Church.  Venue changes will be announced. All owners and residents are welcome. However, only paid members of the Association (members in good standing) are allowed to vote on issues brought before the Board.

The Association accomplishes its mission by requesting that each owner and/or resident of Broad Run Farms join the association for an annual fee of just $50.00 per person (not per address).  Note that unlike an HOA, there is no requirement to join the Civic Association.  But without your support, many projects and events cannot be completed or accomplished with our all-volunteer staff.  Your dues help pay for the maintenance of the Association properties and to fund activities and events sponsored by our association. Please see the Dues page for more information.
