Last year, the Fairlington Historical Society partnered with the Fairlington Citizens Association to create the Fairlington ornament in honor of the community’s 75th anniversary. The ornament proved to be very popular and we continue to make it available. At $10.00, each comes boxed with a brochure insert explaining the ornament design and offering a brief history of the neighborhood.
You can place your order at www.fca-fairlington.org (PayPal or a major credit card) and you can pick up your order at the Fairlington Villages Management Office (3001 South Abingdon Street) anytime Monday-Friday (8:30 am – 5:30 pm) and Saturday (9:00 am – 2:00 pm). The office is closed on Sundays and all Federal holidays.
