Village News, 1/11/18

Dear Village Neighbors / Friends,


Hope all survived the deep freeze. I had never heard of a bomb cyclone, but glad we’re on the back side of it.


Directory Ads - Please consider placing an ad in our community directory for your business or the business where you work. Steve at Printing Ideas would normally contact businesses, but I offered to help this year due to his workload. The ads help cover the cost of printing which allows us more flexibility in our budget. We’d have to raise our dues by another $5.00 if we were to bear that cost. May have to consider that in the future, but right now – just wanting to sell ads.


We’ll advertise your business, not only in the directory, but also on our website ( and periodically in our weekly news sent via email. When asked for a recommendation, we direct residents first to ads in our directory.


Printing Ideas is a bit behind schedule, but we plan on delivering the directory to most homes in our village and to many in the neighboring Rolling Valley subdivision later this month or early February.


Here are the 2018 ad rates:

  • Back cover (8x10") = $250.00
  • Inside Front or Back cover (8x10") - $225.00
  • Full page ad (8x10") - $150.00
  • Half page ad (5x8") - $100.00
  • Quarter page ad (4x5") - $60.00

The premium ad locations go quickly, please contact Steve at Printing Ideas ( or 703/591-1708. Visit their website at


Theft from Cars and Car Theft – Last week we mentioned the thefts from cars and one car actually stolen in neighboring communities. The FCPD want us to lock unattended cars and to not store valuables in sight within a parked car. Add to that is the need for additional security when you start your car to warm it on cold mornings. Too many of us do so and leave the car unattended and running with the keys in the ignition as we go back to the warmth of our homes. Probably not a grand idea; is it?
