You may have noticed a lot of activity on the lawn of Navy Federal Credit Union, just where Follin Road turns right and becomes Electric Avenue.
There was a marker there, but it was rather small and got lost in the long vista up the hill to the the main administration building. What was needed was something that stood out a bit more.
The job was given to Merrifield Gardens designer Tom McVean, who tastefully incorporated the Navy Federal logo into an attractive base of stonework and perennial plants.
The signage is illuminated at night, and was turned on Saturday for the first time. It attracted the attention of a Whitetail deer and a few Canada geese who strolled over to check out their new acquisitions.
Navy Federal is Vienna’s largest employer and taxpayer. It is a good friend to the town and regularly supports community activities.
