Stan Karson, president of our neighbor civic association RAFOM, has been awarded the Arlington County Civic Federation's Sun Gazette Cup. The Arlington County Civic Federation was established in 1916 to promote the general welfare of Arlington County. The Civic Federation's honorary cup, which dates back to 1938, is an annual award for community service. Congratulations to our neighbor Stan Karson for receiving this historic honor.
