Independence Day: I hope everyone is able to be with family and friends to celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day over this weekend and on July 4th. This special holiday is a great day to cool down in a pool or at the beach and grill out with your preferred beverage. Please celebrate safely and responsibly. Some fireworks are legal in Virginia; however, they can be dangerous if not used properly. Additionally, loud noises can be a difficult time for our neighborhood armed forces veterans suffering from PTSD and our pets.
