No matter how old we are — and whether or not we get a true summer vacation — there’s something freeing and relaxing about this laid-back season. The kids are on break, and we can finally more safely gather and enjoy some sunshine together.
Prince William Living will be gathering soon to celebrate our Extraordinary Teens! Check out the 10 winners in our feature. I know you’ll be as amazed as our judges were at their incredible accomplishments and
contributions to their schools and the greater Prince William community. We received many impressive entries and narrowing the pool wasn’t easy. Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a teen and to all of the young men and women doing extraordinary things around us every day.
As summer unfolds, like us, we bet many of you will find yourself at a cookout or firing up a grill. Get the best tips and tricks for the finest food from your grill in our Local Flavor section. (You’ll even get a hint or two on where to find the best local supplies!) And if you’d like a local soundtrack to liven up your festivities, check out On a High Note to learn about a new release from local artist Patrick King.
Perhaps summer is the perfect time to expand your finance knowledge and discover the best place to stash that nest egg. Read up on your options in Your Finances. And when it comes to summer learning, we definitely can’t leave the kids out. You can find fun and engaging ways to sneak learning in all summer long. Read our Family Fun section for ideas to get you started.
It wouldn’t be an issue of PWL without featuring a nonprofit! This month, Giving Back features Project Mend-A-House and their incredible projects that are enabling and empowering Prince William residents. And speaking of empowerment, Health and Wellness tells the story of Ashley Miller of Nokesville and her healing journey with Novant Health UVA Health System Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine.
