A big thank you to Jen and Ben Miller for organizing our 2017 Fourth of July Parade.The Springfield Connection wrote an outstanding article in their weekly paper, read the full article here.
It was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by the local politicians and residents. Fairfax Supervisors’ Chairman, Sharon Bulova, Springfield District Supervisor, Pat Herrity, State Senator Dave Marsden, Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn and Lolita Mancheno-Smoak who is running for the Delegate position of the 42nd District attended walking and passing out greetings to residents.
Boy scouts and girl scouts walked sporting their flags and uniforms. Swim clubs participated and countless residents with bikes, strollers and red, white and blue decorations.
The weather was super and we celebrated at the end with ice cream gathered by Winston Knolls, our partner civic association. Giant Food made contributions with the ice cream.
We also thank all of the volunteers who made the parade down Sydenstricker possible. Volunteers make our communities great!
