Forty years ago today, the United States Men's Olympic hockey team won gold in the 1980 Olympics. It was an exciting time as the USA team was not expected to advance beyond the quarterfinals yet they achieved the gold medal. This event stirred up pride in our nation and brought people together. Let us all remember the power of being united and coming together to do wonderful things in our community, in our county, in our Commonwealth and in our nation. May God Bless the USA!

Here's a few more photos of some of the swearing in ceremonies for elected officials and deputies for some of our constitutional officers. I administered the oath of office to Supervisor Koran Saines (Sterling District) as his son and father witnessed the swearing in. After administering the oath of office to Sheriff Mike Chapman, I administered the oath to the management team of Sheriff's deputies in a special ceremony. The deputies who serve in constitutional offices are vital so I was pleased to give the oath to Chief Deputy Sue Breen as Commissioner of Revenue Bob Wertz witnessed. Thank you all for your service to the citizens of Loudoun County.
