Clarendon, Arlington, VA, Mardi Gras Parade 2014

The 2014 Clarendon Mardi Gras Parade in Arlington, Virginia. It’s coming up soon!

Parade

Believe it or not, the Clarendon Mardi Gras Parade is the largest celebration of Mardi Gras’ Fat Tuesday in the Washington, DC area. Organized by our wonderful Clarendon Alliance, the colorful parade features community groups, an array of floats, some pretty cars, fire trucks and “tons” of Mardi Gras beads (necklaces).

When? Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at 8PM.

Where? The parade route runs along Wilson Boulevard from North Barton Street to North Irving Street. Wilson Boulevard will be closed off to non-parade activity.

How to get there? Be GREEN and take Metro. It’s right nearby.
Or, if driving, where to park? On the street or in one of the several public garages.

We look forward to seeing you. It’s a yearly outing for Team Yes I Ken!
Arlington, VA’s Mardi Gras Parade is another reason that ARLINGTON ROCKS!

Cheers,
Ken

RED DAY AT KELLER WILLIAMS: MAY 9th, 2013 – We ROCK Arlington!

Thursday, May 9th,  is RED DAY at Keller Williams. This is our annual day of service. It’s an international effort and it’s lots of fun! On this one day each year, agents in every Keller Williams office fan out across our communities to volunteer their services. Our office has four activities planned.

Here’s what we’ll be doing:

1. Cleaning the shelter run by A-SPAN (Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network)  The shelter is closed for the season, but needs a deep cleaning. We also will be helping the staff prepare for their gala fund-raiser by stuffing goodie bags and anything else they need to be ready for their event.

2. Supply drive at Whole Foods. We will be collecting items for  A-SPAN. Whole Foods is a wonderful partner in this effort. We will have shopping lists to hand to shoppers as they arrive. We’ll have baskets at the exit for them to drop the goods when they leave. Be sure to stop by Whole Foods at Clarendon to say hello and to help support us in our efforts! That is where I will be, as I have been in the past years. This time, come see me 12-2pm!

3. Painting at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

4.  Underwear and sock drive. We will have a box in our office for donations of new men’s underwear and socks for A-SPAN.

Contact me if you would like more information or help with giving a donation. Here’s to Arlington, as well as all of VA, DC, & MD, and all of our wonderful communities across America and the world.


Cheers!
Ken & The Yes I Ken! Team
