    Free RECcenter admission would be great, if we only had one in Hunter Mill District just like all the other supervisor’s districts. No, vets, instead you will have to drive to Oakton if you want to take advantage of this opportunity.

    Nonetheless, thank you to all of you who are veterans and a very special salute to those who gave their lives for our country and to their families and friends.

    I think the libraries are open Saturday and Sunday as usual, but closed on Monday, no?
