Ah, summertime, where the living is easy and the weather hot and humid with long daylight hours. This combination makes for a perfect time to consider entertaining. Our cover story, “Summer Celebrations” by Amy Falkofske, profiles several local residents who provide ideas and tips on how to plan or host family and friends.
Prince William is home to several outdoor activity options and we have profiled many of them in the magazine. A little gem you may not be familiar with is Conway Robinson State Forest. Delia Engstrom brings to life “Your Oasis Amidst the Busyness” in this month’s Destinations department. Grab your hiking gear, your family and friends, and maybe even your dog to enjoy some peace and tranquility in a natural setting.
The warmer season is also time to enjoy race car driving. If this is your scene, you won’t want to miss this issue’s Giving Back. Marianne Weaver’s “Back on Track: Teen Race Car Driver Helps Veterans in Need” profiles a local driver who combines his passion for racing with helping those who serve.
As you continue to enjoy the lazy, hazy days of summer, know that the Prince William Living team is still hard at work to continue to bring you the latest information and news about your community. Visit our website princewilliamliving.com regularly for updates. And starting in August, nominations will be open for our Giving Back Awards. We profile the finalists in the November issue. Check princewilliamliving.com/givingback for past winners and the call for nominations.
