  • Dulles South Community Center 24950 Riding Center Drive Chantilly, VA, 20152 United States (map)

Come to the Dulles South Community Center on Sunday, October 20, at 5:00 pm for a fun community gathering for everyone!

Family Scarecrow Makin’ and Pumpkin Paintin’ - Families of all ages are invited to come to the Dulles South Community Cente to make scarecrows and decorate pumpkins. Bring some old clothes (a shirt and pants) and newspaper to make your scarecrow – we will supply the straw, stakes, and pumpkins. NOTE: RSVP by Oct 18 to so we can have enough supplies.

Blessing of the Animals - We will gather outside, behind the Dulles South Community Center, to celebrate and thank our Divine Creator for our pets. We will share in a responsive reading, pray for their health, and offer a blessing over their well-being. If you can’t bring your pet, you are welcome to bring a picture! Pets must be on a leash or in a cage/carrier, be current in their vaccinations, and hopefully on their best behavior! If it rains, we will offer our blessing indoors and please just bring a picture of your pet.

In addition, please consider bringing donations for the The Humane Society of Loudoun County including: Bath towels (good condition), Cat toys without feathers, Kong type dog toys and balls, Large plastic or metal bowls, Treats for cats, dogs, horses or rabbits, Litter for small animals, Dry and canned food, or Rubber gloves.
