Yard of the Month
 
The AVCA is pleased to announce the "Yard of the Month" program.  This program is intended to inspire residents of Ashburn Village to take pride in the appearance and upkeep of their yards and the exterior of their homes to improve the appearance of our community by promoting well-kept yards.  Starting in June, one winner each month will be selected to be Yard of the Month by the Covenants team.  The winner will receive a $25 Loews gift card and will proudly display a "Yard of the Month" sign in their yard for the entire month.  A picture of the winning yard will also be posted on the AVCA website.  Every single-family/townhome resident is invited to participate.
