Public Forum on Community Center

The public is invited to attend a second public forum on the future of the Vienna Community Center on Tuesday, July 16, at 7 p.m. at the Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry St. S.E. Results from the community survey that was open from mid-May through July 5 will be discussed, as well as programming information and market analysis.

The survey was conducted as part of the Vienna Community Center Feasibility and Needs Study which is currently underway to determine the future potential growth of the center. On June 10, the consultants working on the study with the town presented data gathered mid-way through the survey to the Vienna Town Council. The presentation detailing the mid-point results is available online at http://www.viennava.gov/index.aspx?nid=1031.

The first community forum was held on April 23, and gathered input on how the facility is currently used, identified likes and dislikes about the facility and what the community would like to see in a renovated and expanded Vienna Community Center.

The forum is free and open to the Greater Vienna area. For more information, call 703-255-6356 or visit http://www.viennava.gov/index.aspx?nid=1031.

Vienna Youth Players Present Summer Musical

The Vienna Youth Players will present the musical “AIDA” at the Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry Street SE, on Aug. 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. and August 11 at 1 p.m.

AIDA is a contemporary musical take on a grand classic tale of the timeless bond between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier. As forbidden love blossoms between them, the young lovers are forced to face death or part forever. Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

Tickets go on sale at the Vienna Community Center on Monday, July 8 and are $14 general admission. For more information, call the Vienna Parks and Recreation Department at 703-255-6360 or visit www.viennava.gov.
