Diane Krasula (L) and Melinda Nahmias (R) after walk.

CH Participants in Breast Cancer Two of Chantilly Highlands’ own participated in the recent 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk. Melinda Nahmias and Diane Krasula began training as early as late last summer. Diane was convinced she wanted to participate in the walk after volunteering at last year’s closing ceremony. Her sister is a two-year cancer survivor. Melinda, having relatives and close friends both as survivors of breast cancer and some that succumbed to the disease, wanted to show her support. The walk — the first of nine taking place across the country this year — is designed to raise money to fight cancer. The walkers must find sponsors to participate. Diane and Melinda thought that collecting the money would be more difficult than training for the walk. Much to their surprise, they both exceeded the required $1,900 with a combined total of over $11,000. The total for the event was 6.7 million dollars. The months of training paid off, as the women completed the 60-mile trek through Montgomery County and ending at the Washington Monument, as neither had blisters and looked remarkable the day after when the above What’s picture was taken.

Community Yard Sale -- A Big Success!!

Community Calendar

By Susan McCullough

What a great day for a yard sale!! Mother Nature gave us a beautiful, sunny day, and many participated in our Community Yard Sale this year -- our streets were crowded with lots of cars, vans, and trucks full of bargains and treasures. A big thank you to everyone who participated in our sale this year, both buyers and sellers. We appreciate all of you who participated in our map and vendor handout, and we hope you had people visit your home who were interested in the types of items you were selling. Kudos to Beth Smith for all of her advertising efforts. Our sale was publicized in the weekly newspapers in Western Fairfax and Eastern Loudon Counties. She designed and posted the eye catching signs at the community entrances, and distributed many individual signs to vendors. Thanks, Beth. Great job!! Also, a big thank you to Sharon Denisar for coordinating the map and vendor handout distribution at the four community entrances. Most of the 200 handouts were taken by prospective buyers. And, thank you to Jeff Parnes for posting our vendor list on our CHHA website for residents to access the Friday before the sale. Your Feedback is Requested Since this is the first time we distributed a community map and vendor listing, we would like to know if you think it was a worthwhile endeavor. •

Do you think participating in our handout was beneficial to you? • Would you participate again in the future? • Do you have any ideas for enhancements for next year? • Please send your feedback to Susan McCullough at or call (703) 904-8453. See you next year!!

Home Security This month, I would like to touch on burglaries and how you can prevent this crime. LIGHTS are one of the MANY prevention tips. Not only are they beneficial for you, but for officers responding as well. Light up the back and front with sensor lighting. Approach your house like the "Burglar." Ask yourself whether you have made it easy for them to gain access into your home. Know what types of locks you have. Know if the strike plate is appropriate for your lock/door. If you have doubts ....CALL ME!! Home Security Surveys are FREE and applicable to YOUR home. We will set up an appointment when it is convenient for you. My number is 703-352-2163. Auto Security Take a special look at the types of vehicles being targeted and stolen in your area. Be aware and prevent crime from happening. Don't leave your doors unlocked. DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR VEHICLE! Report suspicious activity. REPORT, REPORT, REPORT!!! IF WE DON"T KNOW, WE CAN’T SHOW!!! Your calls count and work!! Don't talk yourself out of phoning the police. If you question the activity....REPORT IT!!

ACC Highlights Submitted by the committee

On July 1, 2001, the ACC will begin to inspect all properties in the community for violations of the 2001 Guidelines and Standards. If a violation is noted, a Letter of Discovery will be issued as the first step in getting the property into compliance. A homeowner will then have 30 days to correct the violation. Failure to comply could result in fines, loss of community privileges, and/or legal action upon which the homeowner will be responsible for all association costs. Reminders •

• • •

Exterior alteration requests must be submitted at least 30 days prior to scheduled work. The committee may take up to 60 days. (Forms located on website at All decking and fencing material may be stained or left to weather. Painted wood is not acceptable. Lattice is not an acceptable fence. Check guidelines for examples. Neighbors should be consulted on the construction of structures such as fences, additions, play equipment, etc., with the goal of minimizing visual impact. Any change in house colors requires an exterior alteration request. Colors must blend with surrounding homes.

Members of the ACC wish to thank the residents of Chantilly Highlands who work with us to maintain the standards that protect our real estate values and keep our community looking great. Remember that it is the residents who make Chantilly Highlands a desirable community, and not just a place to live. Have a great summer!

Additional Water Wisdom By

Parent: I realize that it is June but could I still sign my child up for the swim team? Answer man: Absolutely! We’d be happy to have you. You’ve only missed a few practices and we won’t have our first meet for two weeks. You may join the swim team at any time, just pay the $20 late fee and off you go. We want to encourage as many children as possible to come and improve their swimming skills. Parent: I am a first time swim parent and my child and I are a little nervous about this whole thing. Answer man: Relax. The swim team is an easy going, good time and your child will not be forced to do anything he doesn’t want to do. The practices are of varying degrees of difficulty to accommodate the brand new member as well as the swimmer with years of experience. Very few of our experienced swim team parents have had any kind of competitive swimming background. Parent: I just signed my son up for the swim team last month, and I must say I was quite taken aback when I discovered that I would have to volunteer for five jobs. Couldn’t I just be the snack Dad a couple times like I’ve done for my son’s soccer team. Answer man: Absolutely! Just make sure that you bring enough food and beverage to keep 250 people happy for 2 1/2 hours. Think of it as good practice for handling the catering at your daughter’s wedding reception. Parent: You must be joking! Answer man: No I’m not. From the local summer swim team, all the way to the Olympics, no other sport requires more parent volunteers. It takes 44 parents to put on a meet; if they all work the entire session. If some go home early, it takes a lot more. The home team provides about two thirds of the parents with the visiting team providing the rest. Parent: I don’t know a thing about swimming. Do you think I still might have what it takes to be an effective volunteer? Answer man: Because of the diverse positions available, we have yet to find a parent that is not capable of handling at least one of the tasks. Different Parent: I have brought heartbreak, despair, and misery to every organization that my child has ever been involved with. I am totally self-centered, it’s all about me, me, me. My child is faultless. When he burps, I swear it’s Beethoven. I know the best way to do everything, and no one can meet my standards or make me happy. Do you think I can find contentment as a swim team Mom? Answer man: Absolutely! I don’t know exactly how it happens but when you become a swim team parent all that psychological baggage just falls away and your neuroses will dissipate like the ethereal mist rising from the Chan-

Steve Bachman tilly Highlands pool in the cool of the morning. Parent: You know, that list of swim team volunteer duties is basically mundane grunt work. I am a very busy and important person. Name one other person that is more famous and/or busy than I am who would stoop to do such plebeian tasks. Answer man: Joe Jacoby, former All Pro offensive lineman for the Washington Redskins, holder of three Super Bowl rings and business owner. Joe and his wife do the same grunt jobs for their kid’s swim team as you will be doing for yours. Parent: You know, if big Joe will mingle with the proletariat and carry little pieces of paper from point A to Point B in order to be of service to the children of the area I too will serve, with joy in my heart and a smile on my face. Answer man: Good. If you have any more questions, please e-mail the “Answer man” at

Spring Cleaning at CH PlayA great big THANK YOU to the neighbors who spent a very warm Sunday afternoon spreading mulch at the tot lot. The board and community appreciate the time and hard work of Rich and Celine Contos and family; Gary Green; Mark and Portia Helme and family; Sharon and Heather Hough, Mary and Brian McBride and family, Loretta and Peter Malander; Patrick, Michael, and Sean Palmer; Scott and Cynthia Peters and family; Lisa and Quinn Shorten; Bill Wolff; Darin, Kathy, Joshua, and Grant Welt; and those who stopped playing to help. A special thanks to Patrick Palmer for providing the mulch. The playground looks fabulous! Coming Soon Some of the playground equipment is in need of repair and a new bridge is required. Parents, please watch that your children play safely and avoid crossing the bridge until the new one is installed.

Bash the Trash! Saturday, June 2nd at 9 AM Join the Community Clean Up! Join forces with the Chantilly Highlands Garden Club to keep Stone Heather Drive litter free. Safety vests will be provided by the Garden Club. Gloves are Suggested.

Trash A plea to patrons of the playground and picnic area. If the trashcans are full, please collect all garbage and dispose of it in the large brown dumpster in the parking lot or one of the blue barrels. The types of visitors that are attracted by the trash are not the types of visitors we want playing with our small children.

On June 25, the last garden club meeting before summer break will feature a workshop on Stained Glass Stepping Stones presented by our own Barbara Defendorf. These stepping stones make a wonderful gift and addition to any garden. While kits to make a stepping stone required advanced sign up, there will be plenty of opportunity at the meeting to learn the “how-to” of this wonderful craft. All meetings are held at the Community Center at 7 PM and include light refreshments. Over the summer we will be posting awards in the Community Center received during the 5 years the Garden Club has been in existence. A hearty “Thank You” to the CHHA Board from the Garden Club! We are also continuing work on a website to link to the Chantilly Highlands Home Page. More news on these to follow in future Highlander articles. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for June 2nd for the Adopt-A-Spot clean-up along Stone Heather Drive. Meet at 9:00 AM at Starbucks for complimentary coffee. Vests and trash bags will be provided.

Mom & Tot Corner

Chantilly High School Theater ProThe Envelope Please. And the Cappie goes to ……. Well, the season has ended for the Chantilly High School Theater Department but the excitement isn’t quite over. The Department’s show, “Room Service”, performed last fall has been nominated for seven Cappie awards. Founded in 1999, this path breaking "Critics and Awards Program" (Cappie) is adding excitement and public acclaim to high school theater. Through the Cappies, high school students attend and review each other’s shows, publish their reviews in local newspapers, and participate in a year-end, Tonysstyle Cappies Gala. "Since we've invented the Cappies," said Fairfax County School Superintendent Daniel Domenich at last year's Gala, "there's no place in the world that does high school theater any better than we do it right here in Northern Virginia." Thirty-four Northern Virginia high schools and the Duke Ellington School in the District participated in this year’s program and the nominations have just been announced. Chantilly High School’s hilarious presentation of “Room Service” garnered seven nominations including Best Set Design, Best Performance by an Ensemble, Best Performance by a Leading Actor, Best Cameo Performance by an Actor, Best Comic Performance by an Actor, Best Play, and Chantilly Highlands resident Reema Hijazi was nominated for Best Comic Performance by an Actress. Congratulations to Reema and the entire Theater Department for these nominations and for a great season of performances. The awards will be handed out at the Annual Gala on June 9th at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. With two main stage productions, two Children’s Theater productions, the annual Christmas Carol production, and participation in the annual Folger Shakespeare Festival, the Chantilly High School Theater Department offers student performers many opportunities to display their talents for audiences of all ages. Watch for next season’s production and join in the fun!

Helpful Hints for a Successful Pool Season • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Review the Pool Rules printed in the May issue. Share the Pool Rules with your children and teach them their lot number. Remind them that if they are dismissed from the pool three times, that they lose their privilege for the entire summer. Family photos for the Rolodex are due by June 15th. If dues have not been paid, access to the pool will be denied. As a favor, the lifeguards sell snacks during break. Snacks are sold only during break. Snacks will not be sold at the final break of each day. Bring quarters to the pool for the pay phone and snacks. Lifeguards are not permitted to make change. Food is only permitted in the fenced-in areas. Each person is responsible for disposing of their trash. Volunteers are needed to take inventory and purchase snacks periodically.
