Much of the focus in this month’s issue is on the outdoors, which makes sense; June is the beginning of summer vacation. Travel by plane, train and automobile starts. On page 4, writer Helena Tavares Kennedy takes us on a trip suitable for all ages in “Always at Home Wherever We Roam,” looking at why more people are adopting the RV lifestyle. As some Prince William families know, RVing is an excellent way to spend time outdoors and see the country while never leaving the comforts of “home.”
And who knows more about the great outdoors than the Boy Scouts of America? In “Giving Back,” on page 22, Amy Falkofske highlights the local Boy Scouts in Prince William and how the youth organization is building future leaders in our area with projects that serve our community as well as get our boys outdoors and learning self-reliance.
Speaking of boys, what young man doesn’t like baseball? June’s “Destinations” takes us “out to the ballgame” as Pfitzner Stadium celebrates its 30th anniversary. Read about some of the ballpark’s activities planned for this summer, as well as plans for the future in “Minor League, Major Fun,” by Peter Lineberry, on page 12.
Also, the National Wildlife Federation’s popular, nationwide Great American Backyard CampoutTM is in June, and Amanda Causey shares her s’mores recipe and tips on how to unplug and head outside in this month’s “Family Fun,” on page 18.
Lastly (but not last), nature never looked so good as Cindy Brookshire introduces us to Hannele Lahti in “On a High Note,” on page 10. This award-winning photographer shows us the beauty of the outdoors in her work and through her eyes. We hope that this month’s Prince William Living inspires you to take some time to experience nature. Just remember to wear sunscreen as you head outside. Enjoy your summer and stay safe.
