Dear Residents,

Summer is here and I am ready to finally spend time with friends and neighbors in person at a few fun events coming up. I will be testing out my roller skates at tomorrow's grand opening of Skateland at Mosaic, in support of FCPS Pride. I would also love to see you at the Independence Day Parade on July 3rd and at Nottoway Park for a Latinx Conservation Month event on July 10th. I know the community is excited for the return of Nottoway Nights, starting on July 8th, with Project Locrea as the opening act. I would also like to invite anyone interested to meet our new Police Chief at the Providence Community Center on July 27th. You can find all of the details for these events and more in the newsletter below.

Wishing you a wonderful start to the summer!

With Gratitude,
Supervisor Dalia Palchik
