In this month of love, we’re introducing you to a host of minority-owned businesses in the area. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to share your love with them or other small businesses the next time you need a floral arrangement, business services or a gift for a loved one. Read all about these rock stars in our feature.

Or if you’re a rock star yourself who owns or is thinking of opening your own small business, flip over to Lifelong Learning to discover a multitude of free resources available to you. The Mason Small Business Development Center is ready and waiting to support you in making your business dream become a reality.
In our Giving Back section, you’ll find the story of Equality Prince William and how they are spreading love throughout Prince William. EPW gives a voice to the LGBTQ community and their family and friends by providing a safe place for them to bring up and discuss issues, as well as advocate and educate.

Our Local Flavor story brings you the details on Mehfil Restaurant and Banquet, featuring authentic South Asian fair and a banquet hall for all types of celebrations. And in Destinations, you’ll discover events happening at The Salisbury Center in Manassas. From standup comedy to MMA tournaments, this venue offers a variety of entertainment options.

Are you looking for new ways to introduce your children to a variety of cultures? This month’s Family Fun section is packed with ideas to help you raise culturally aware kids. Find dining ideas and book titles to share to spark conversations and education. This month we’re also bringing you the story of a Woodbridge veteran who recently published her first book.

You’ll find tips for your health and finances throughout the magazine, as well — financial planning tips in Your Finances, heart health in Health and Wellness, and family nutrition in Home and Hearth. Wishing you a happy and warm February.

All the best,
