Being Grateful in Prince William County
In May of 2015, we shared a blog of the top 10 reasons why you should come live in Prince William County. The beginning of this holiday season brings to mind that there are many reasons to be really grateful for our area and the people that work to help make it our home.
Prince William County offers lots of great activity and community education centers that help to extend education, fitness and fun to ourselves and our neighbors. Our thriving Parks and Recreation Department gives the children of our community a place to enjoy supervised activities. The Chinn Activities center offers a safe alternative for kids before and after school hours at their before and after school camps for kids in grades K through 8.
Virginia Tech offers extension classes and information that help community members with English as a second language or teach kids about agriculture through their 4-H program.
The Prince William County / Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs have been offering a safe and fun environment for area kids since 1967. The club started with limited character development programs. As they have grown, so has the number of kids that have been helped through the athletics and educational programming added in over the years.
The teachers and administrators of the Prince William County Public School System (PWCS) work hard to make sure our kids get a great education. PWCS has been recognized year after year for excellence in education. Several of our high schools rank in the top quarter of Virginia high schools, thanks to the hard work of our teens and their instructors.
From the day settlers broke ground in America until today, Prince William County and Virginia have played an important part in the history of our nation. Prince William County Historic Preservation Foundation strives to keep alive our area’s stories and historic centers.
New residents to our community may not know that Prince William County is home to many historic sites including Bristoe Station Battlefield and Ben Lomond Plantation.
Prince William County has some of the best water in the nation. PWC participates in several clean water programs such as the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act that controls run-off and pollution and the Stream Restoration Program to keep our waters clean for future generations.
The people of Prince William County are some of the most amazing people around. We are so serious about our community that the PWC United Way raised over $300,000 in their 2016 Do More 24 campaign.
With so many great volunteers and opportunities in PWC , Volunteer Prince William sets out to connect the volunteer with the right place.
These are only a few of the reasons to be thankful for living in Prince William County. We are also grateful for you, our clients and friends. We at the Colgan Real Estate Team hope that you have a blessed and safe holiday season.
