One of my favorite things to do is go out on a summer’s night and look up at the stars. There’s something so soothing about it, the warm air, the bright light, the peace, the freedom. But I also love how fireworks light up the night, colors bursting through the darkness, creating unique pictures in the sky as we celebrate independence. We know how popular fireworks are in our area, which is why this month, we’re bringing you information on the best local displays. Get outside with friends and family and celebrate the founding of our nation.
In this month’s issue, you’ll also find information on great local pools, some inside, some out. That’s in this month’s Destinations. In Lifelong Learning, we encourage you to explore camps that teach. Keep the kiddos busy this summer and all year round by taking advantage of these local resources for educational fun. In Giving Back, we interview folks from Soroptimists. They’re doing some sensational work, strengthening our communities in Manassas and beyond. In Taking Care of Business, meet the newest Prince William Chamber of Commerce chair. Learn about his background and philosophy. And don’t miss our newest addition to Prince William Living – our Change Makers column, where we interview the movers and shakers of our area. Learn what they love about living here and read advice they have for newcomers. Enjoy all this and more in this month’s issue.
I hope you get the chance to celebrate freedom this month. I hope you get to watch fireworks. And if you haven’t done so lately, look up at the stars some evening. Feel free to enjoy the lights and nights of summer.
All the best,
