We have so much to celebrate in Prince William. So, this month, we are calling out some of the most special folks we know: moms, first responders, business owners and some very special volunteers.

Our feature shines a spotlight on the incredible first responders we are blessed with in our area. From  police to fire and rescue — and our amazing dispatchers — these incredible people sacrifice daily to keep us safe. The pandemic has challenged them in unimaginable ways, and — you guessed it — they rose to that challenge. Read all about how they’ve adapted and continued to provide exceptional, personal service to our community amidst COVID-19.

In Family Fun this month, we’ve got some inspiring ideas to help you celebrate Mom that won’t allow her to lift a finger. And on top of those great ideas, you could even throw in a delicious candy apple treat from Tummy-Yum Yum. Read owner Sharita Rouse’s unique story in our Local Flavor section.
