Fall is on its Way

How is it September already? Those first weeks of the pandemic certainly crawled for my  household, but it seems now that days are whizzing by. I’m always a little sad to see summer end, but I’ll take the cooler days. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors, and, in the age of COVID, I’m all for time in the open air.

In this issue, we are sharing about The Little Goat Farm at the Lake, where you can snuggle goats, get your yoga on with them and spend a relaxing day on a farm. Heaven — and outdoors! And be sure to hit up your local orchard (or favorite grocer) to stock up on apples. Our Family Fun section is full of ideas for fun and
delicious activities with this favorite fruit.

Our Health & Wellness section shares what you need to know about children’s immunizations during the pandemic, while Your Finances brings you the facts you need to decide whether or not it’s a good time for you to refinance.

Home & Hearth can help you tackle the often-daunting project of downsizing, and take a peek into the Westminster at Lakeridge senior community in our Lifelong Learning section to see how these residents truly embrace lifelong learning.

One of my favorite things about Prince William is the wide variety of small businesses we have and the passionate people behind them. This month, in Taking Care of Business, learn about Tang’s Alterations. On a High Note features Ordway Conservatory of Classical Ballet, and L&B’s delicious dishes are highlighted in
Local Flavor. Last but not least, check out Boxes of Basics in our Giving Back section to see how they are bringing smiles to local children.

Our feature this month provides you with all the info you need to ensure your vote is counted. Get information on key registration deadlines, learn how to request an absentee ballot and find out how to locate your polling place. We’ve also included some websites where you can read up on candidates and their stances on issues to help you cast the vote that’s right for you.

Thank you for your continued readership. Wishing each of you health and safety this fall and beyond.
