Five candidates will participate in Reston Community Center’s candidate forum on September 11. The forum, which will guide voters on their preferences on who should fill three seats on RCC’s Board of Governors, takes place at RCC Hunters Woods at 6:30 p.m.
Voting in the annual preference poll will take place from September 6 through 27. Ballots will be delivered via mail to Small District 5 residential and commercial addresses after September 5. Voting requires a user ID and PIN to vote online, in-person or by mail.

The publication, which made different selections based on the type of waterpark, wrote that the water mine was one of the best in the area for children between ages 7 and 11.
“Older children beeline for the three lengthy, winding water slides standing three stories tall,” the magazine wrote. “There’s also a log walk, a lazy river, more slides, and a splash area for younger kids.”
The Fairfax County Park Authority wrote the following about the waterpark:
The Water Mine captures the excitement of the Old West’s Gold Rush with themed attractions including more than an acre of slides, flumes, sprays, showers, floatables, and an interactive water playground. Kids can careen off covered wagons, float on wild animals, dash through showers tipped from water-filled ore carts, or float along the Rattlesnake River, a 725-foot lazy river. The centerpiece is Pete’s Peak, a craggy mountain featuring water slides of various size and intensity.
Although the water mine will be open tomorrow (Friday) from noon to 6 p.m., it goes to the dogs with a season-ending event on Saturday (September 7) to benefit the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and the Fairfax County Park Foundation.
