I love this time of year when we all squeeze in a little more time for gratitude and family. While that might look a little different this year, it’s good to know that caring and giving continue in Prince William.
Our Giving Back Awards is an annual opportunity to showcase the best of giving in our area. Take a look at the many organizations providing assistance right here at home. Our Giving Back section highlights the Prince William NAACP branch and the many areas in which they are advocating for equality in the lives of African Americans. And in Change Makers, read about Michael Otaigbe, his gift of storytelling and his spirit of volunteerism.
If the organizations around us inspire you to take positive action, check out our Family Fun section for five acts of kindness you can do with your family. One act in particular may lead you to one of our many Prince William parks. In Destinations, you can find a full listing of Prince William trails and find the best hiking and
biking spots for you and your family.
Prince William is filled with unique businesses and talented individuals. Learn about J Tred Woodworking in our On a High Note section and Manassas Olive Oil Company in Taking Care of Business. Looking for an outdoor dining spot or some tasty take-out? Madigan’s Waterfront Restaurant is serving up delicious meals with a relaxing side of waterfront views.
As the colder months roll in and holidays are upon us, it’s especially important to keep fire safety in mind. Get our best tips for a safe winter season in Home and Hearth. And as the cold draws us indoors more, perhaps you’re looking to learn something new. Check out Lifelong Learning to dive into American Sign
Language and some great spots to learn this valuable language. Last but not least, we know the pandemic has put a financial strain on many households. In Your Finances, we’re featuring tips for adjusting to reduced income due to COVID-19.
In a year that’s been anything but normal, we count your continued support as one of our greatest blessing. Wishing you and yours a beautiful season of gratitude.
