July Events

Looking forward to July, the KFNV continues its busy schedule of events.

  2. On July 6, 2023, the KFNV Movie Club will meet from 2:00-3:00 pm to review the movie, She Said, a 2022 biographical drama based on the 2019 book of the same name by reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey that follows their New York Times investigation that exposed Harvey Weinstein’s history of abuse and sexual misconduct against women. As She Said’s writer Rebecca Lenkiewicz, stated, the film is about “95% accurate,” though Lenkiewicz said that she took “tiny liberties to create dramatic impact.” For example, Lenkiewicz explained, “(H)earing a phone call is more exciting than reading an email. It’s the truth, just a bit more animated.”
  3. On July 13, 2023, the KFNV Book Club will meet from 12:30-2:00 pm, to discuss the novel, The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. The Personal Librarian tells the story of JPMorgan’s personal librarian, Bella da Costa Greene, who was hired by Morgan in the 1920’s to curate a collection of books, artwork, and manuscripts for the Pierpont Morgan Library. Ms. da Costa Greene, however, has a secret she must hide at all costs for the protection of her family. “An untold story that is simply amazing. It’s timely and impactful.” Brenda Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Follow Your Heart.
  4. On July 19, 2023 from 10:00-11:30 am, Coffee and Conversation participants will welcome Barry Jackson, President of the King Farm Citizens Assembly who will discuss developments in King Farm and answer participants’ questions regarding the King Farm community.

As Ms. Mohrman stated, “When I registered for a photo tour to Angola, I had no idea I was signing up for time travel.” Please join Ms. Mohrman and the KFNV for a unique trip back in time!

Please note that the KFNV has changed its monthly Movie Club, Book Club, Coffee and Conversation gatherings, and highlight events to in-person meetings and has reserved the King Farm Community Center, 300 Saddle Ridge Circle, Rockville, MD 20850 for these events.  In accordance with the policy adopted by the KFNV Board of Directors, people attending KFNV sponsored, in-person events must be vaccinated per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID recommendations. Wearing a mask is optional. In case of inclement weather and if there is time to notify participants, the KFNV may opt for a Zoom presentation for any meeting or event.  Therefore, the KFNV will not be offering a hybrid option for any future events.  Finally, the KFNV offers transportation to many of its monthly events for KFNV members. Please contact the Operations Coordinator at kfnvinfo@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at (301) 799-8104 to arrange for transportation.


The KFNV continues to support King Farm residents with its community services. Transportation services continue to be the top category for KFNV services; however, many requests for simple household tasks have been fulfilled.  As a happy, recent recipient of a task fulfilled by our volunteers reported, “Once again, (the two volunteers) are just the best! So very grateful. Thank you thank you.” Other recent tasks that KFNV volunteers have performed are:

  1. Moved unused tiles from a condominium guest room to a garage,
  2. Watered indoor plants and checked on condo for a vacationing KFNV member,
  3. Removed and replaced light bulb in washer/dryer closet of a condo,
  4. Adjusted furnace duct in a utility room of a King Farm home, and
  5. Carried a table down a staircase to the ground floor and outside to load in a car for donation.

As you can see, the tasks have been quite varied. If you are in doubt about whether a task could be performed by one of the KFNV volunteers, go ahead and fill out the service form on the KFNV website. Our Operations Team will get back to you to determine if the task is under our umbrella of tasks.

 Besides transportation and simple household tasks, the KFNV also offers friendly phone calls, texts and friendly visits. Please feel free to avail yourself of all of the community services that the KFNV offers. Please note that services are open to KFNV members only; however, membership is free and an easy process. See below on how to contact the KFNV to schedule any of the services or with any questions that you may have about the services as well as how to become a KFNV member.

Contacting the KFNV

For most of the KFNV monthly events as well as the services, membership is required; but membership is as easy as filling out an on-line or mail-in form with residency in the King Farm Community being the only membership requirement.  Although there is no fee to become a KFNV member, the KFNV does, however, accept and welcome donations; for these donations help defray the cost of KFNV services and events.

For information on how to register for any of the above events, to request a service or a ride, to become a KFNV member or a volunteer, or to make a donation, please contact the Operations Coordinator by calling (301) 799-8104 to  leave a voicemail,  emailing the KFNV at kfnvinfo@gmail.com , or viewing the KFNV website at www.kfnv.org
