The Clevelands, separately and together, are involved in a number of Reston and Northern Virginia organizations, including YMCA of Fairfax County Reston, Greater Reston Arts Center, Reston Community Center, Reston’s Nature House, Reston Historic Trust, Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival, Leadership Fairfax and the Initiative for Public Art Reston, among others.
