Well, we’ve made it to October, folks, and what a year it has been so far. I welcome the cool air, the hikes and the fun family time that fall brings. In fact, in our Family Fun section this month, we’re
bringing you some great ways to have funand make memories as a family.
Many of us Prince William-area residents will tell you that our favorite part of living here is the diversity we find — in the people, the stores, the sites. This diversity also applies to the variety of special-interest clubs we have. Read about a few of our unique groups in this month’s feature.
This month, we’ve provided several resources to help parents support their children. We realize school looks very different this year. If your child needs some extra help, check out our Lifelong Learning section for resources to assist them — all from home. And for families looking for ways to support their LGBTQ+
children or family members, read our Giving Back section to learn how Metro DC PFLAG is “creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued and affirmed.”
Get the latest information on free, local COVID-19 testing dates and sites in our Health & Wellness section. Tests are limited to the allocated amount for each site, so get there early. Meet two influential people in our community in our Taking Care of Business and Change Makers sections. Carlos Castro shares the story of how Todos Supermarket became a success, and Sabrina Ricks discusses volunteer opportunities and offers advice to residents new to the area.
In Local Flavor, we’ve got everything pumpkin you could ever need. And Home and Hearth offers ideas for kitchen upgrades — creating perfect spaces to whip up those pumpkin recipes, perhaps? Last but not least, when was the last time you thought about that 401k from your last job — or three? Do you have accounts still hanging out with past companies? Weigh your options and decide what’s best for you to do with them in the Your Finances section.
