Thanks to all of you who came out to enjoy The Morrison Brothers Band at the Celebrate Great Falls Concert on the Green. The band’s performance rivaled some of the presentations we have heard at Wolf Trap this summer. It will be fun to track their success as they debut at larger venues and their songs start moving up the charts. Sometime in the not too distant future we will be able to say “we saw them when.” Although the weather forecast had been questionable, we ended up with blue skies, pleasant breezes, and humidity so low one would associate it with late spring rather than the dog days of summer. AOG sponsored a booth giving away candy for kids’ young and old, adult beverages, and summertime favorites like ice tea and lemonade.
Pictured above is the winner of the raffle for an AOG Wealth Management picnic basket, including a bottle of wine from Alpha Omega Vineyards (no relation) in Napa Valley, California. I spotted one of our elected officials, Barbara Comstock, the 34th District (includes Great Falls) Delegate to the Virginia House of Delegates, in the crowd and we persuaded her to conduct the drawing for the basket. Many of you know Barbara from her stint as the Chief of Staff to Congressman Frank Wolf. He is retiring this year, and Barbara is the Republican nominee to represent the Virginia 10th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
