In 1972, Loudoun residents formed Keep Loudoun Beautiful (KLB) to take on a little problem the county experienced at the time, and the organization has continued to grow and keep its collective eye on the landscape to make sure it’s attractive to residents and potential visitors.
On July 7, KLB is hosting a barbecue in Middleburg to help Loudoun County retain its beautiful landscape.
The KLBBQ will provide live music, food, a cash bar, door prizes, earth-friendly giveaways and a silent auction. It takes place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 7 at the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant, 36205 Snake Hill Road, in Middleburg.
All proceeds will help KLB perform litter cleanups and provide environmental stewardship education for residents across the county.
