Welcome! The Radnor / Ft. Myer Heights Civic Association (RAFOM) serves the residential community in Arlington, Virginia that includes much of Rosslyn, Courthouse, and Ft. Myer Heights. The area is bounded Wilson Boulevard on the north, the Potomac River and National Park Service land on the east, Arlington Cemetery and Fort Myer on the south, and Courthouse Road on the west. Check the Geographical Boundaries map to see if you live in the area. RAFOM is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. A member of the Arlington County Civic Federation and Arlington County Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee, RAFOM plays an active role in representing the interests of neighborhood residents. All members of the community are welcome to attend RAFOM's regular meetings and/or join as members.
Message from RAFOM President Stan Karson:
For those of you who attended the June 2015 RAFOM Annual Meeting at Top of the Town, you don't need to be told the following. But, for those of you who could not attend, we want you to know what a great success it was, and why.
About 170 people attended, including our Virginia Delegate Rip Sullivan, Police Chief Farr, a Deputy and Assistant Fire Chief, Clerk of the Court Paul Ferguson, and the following who made welcoming remarks:
- Mary Hynes, County Board Chair
- Colonel Michael Henderson, Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall Commander
- Stefanie Pryor, President of the Arlington County Civic Federation.
The hit of the evening was our guest speaker, Senator Mark Warner. He was relaxed, informative and answered many audience questions with sincerity and humor, apparently enjoying the experience fully.
Of course, as always the spectacular view, abundant refreshments and the piano music performed by our friend Milton Nelson contributed greatly to the evening. While many deserve thanks for making this event one of the best - some say it was the best we have had - special appreciation must go to Patrick Morrogh of The Quarterdeck restaurant, who once again provides RAFOM with all the beer, wine and other beverages; Patricia Darneille, who as always shopped for the food, sent out the invitations and supervised setting up the room, other RAFOM Board members, and Danielle Fredrickson.
