Another New Face in the Neighborhood

FW&D Remodeling is excited to welcome another new member to our team! Elizabeth Stevenson, longtime Virginian, is joining FW&D as Office Manager. Elizabeth has over 5 years of Publishing and Marketing experience and brings her cheery spirit to the office of FW&D. She is excited about the different type of remodeling experience that FW&D offers and looks forward to helping customers have a wonderful experience from the very first phone call! Her work, away from the job site, will help ensure that the On-Time Guarantee is met as well, and that customers always have a place to turn for help or questions.

In her free time, Elizabeth loves to cook, read, and write. She even has a Greek Food Site that she publishes. Check it out – you might find some recipes you want to try at home! We are definitely excited to see a restaurant review from her in a future FW&D Newsletter! Welcome to the team, Elizabeth!

Sadly, with the welcome addition of a new Office Manager, it means saying goodbye to our previous OM, Mary, who is moving back to Texas. Mary has enjoyed her time with FW&D and will miss everyone.

4th of July

The annual Fourth of July parade in Fairlington this year was fun and educational. Besides eating hot dogs and ice cream, another highlight was seeing people dressed in colonial period costumes playing their instruments. Sponsored by the Fairlington Citizens Association (FCA), the parade stepped off at 9:45 am at the Fairlington Fire Station #7. The history of Fairlington is an interesting one. Fairlington was originally constructed as a housing development for defense workers and their families during World War II. We found that the spot in which we were standing was right where the Battery Garesche from the Civil War previously stood. As longtime Arlington and Fairlington residents, the Fourth of July was even more special surrounded by our customers, neighbors, and friends. We are lucky to live in such a close knit community that is able to host such a celebration, and look forward to another parade next year. Check out the fife and drum playing the armed services medley, or a video of the entire parade.
