COVID vaccination update:

As of this morning, the County is scheduling vaccinations for those who qualify in the 1B group, including adults 75 and older. If you qualify, you can call the Health Department’s vaccine hotline at 703-324-7404 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to register for an appointment. With anticipated high call volume, if you call when the line is overwhelmed, please be patient and call back again. My hope is that the availability of an online form for scheduling next week will expedite this process.

Taking your eyes off the road for a split second can have serious consequences. Beginning January 1, 2021, law enforcement officers across Virginia will be stopping anyone seen holding a phone while driving. If convicted, you will be fined $125 for the first offense. If you are caught again or seen on the phone in a construction zone, the fine is $250. Help keep our roads safe and put your phone down.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks for more information and details about the law.

Take down if not allowed. Did you know that Springfied has the first neighborhood Bicycle Pump Track in Northern Virginia located in Brookfield Park. Not only does it serve our local residents but families from neighboring communities visit it as well, then stop to shop and eat at our local businesses. Our Parks continue to attract people into the area, and heres a chance to help one of our local parks and local youth as well. I hope you consider this opportunity and as a bonus, the first $2000.00 of funding will be matched. Thank You.
The railroad tracks must be raised above ground level! Neighborhood streets become concrete! Local rds must be upgraded! Minor rds get a center ln with concrete! Such as 2 ln rds become concrete 4 blvds, with no crossovers, and it's only one way where their isn't a traffic light! Wanting to cross or turn left, must only take a tunnel! Four ln rds become a concrete moderate access rds, which is a wide median rd! Minor rds here split up and tunnel, which means fewer traffic lights! Six ln rds become concrete limited access rds with complete concrete feeder rds with exit ramps after intersections and entrance ramps before intersections! Intersections at this limited access rds depress below grade level, including parallel feeder rds at this intersections! The main lns at the intersections stay at grade level, due to intersections running below grade level! Pedestrian bridges over rds convert into ped tunnels! Must be bike lns along main neighborhood rds, minor rds, blvds, moderate access rds, and limited access rds, for both feeder rds and main lns! While bike lns only get barriers, if it's a limited or moderate access rd, including feeder rds! On the main lns of limited access rds, only bikes that are gas or electric can get on! The bike lns on the main lns of limited access rds tunnel exit and entrance ramps! While, the bike lns on the main lns of limited access rds have their own exit and entrance ramps, that tunnel the feeder rds! All rds get sidewalks, with sidewalk ramps at intersections! Sidewalks must not be near the road, for enough space for a car, between the sidewalk and the road! All rds must automate, which is computer chips embedded below the concrete! By that, good bye to steering wheels on vehicles and hello joysticks and computers on vehicles! By that, you'd see on the road, are less Aspberger Syndrome, Mildly Mentally Challenge below IQ 55, Cerebral Palsy and Downs Syndrome, Older Seniors, including of Nursing Homes, and as young as 12! Due to bikes running on gas or electricity, you'd see this bicyclists on the rds that are more of the Autistic, Moderately Mentally Challenge, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome who're below IQ 55, Centenarians, and Children!
We went to your 4th of July "Firework show" and nothing really happened after 9pm. Was there supposed to be more or was the white sheet with digital fireworks all it was supposed to be? If so, your advertisement was unclear and misleading.
I checked your directory but could not find a listing of Black-owned businesses. I would like to amplify their existence and encourage neighbors to shop local.
I know you the chamber members are working diligently during the pandemic. The bottom line is Mammoth Global Partners, Inc. is a verified SDVOSB manufacturing and selling cloth protective masks. Yes, we are current. Our niche is three fold: 1) We ship in 7 to 10 Calendar Days. 2) We don't cancel or postpone shipments. 3) We can customize the mask to a unit logo or just go black or any color you require. This week, we have shipped over 20,000 black masks for the Def. Logistics Agency. Our masks are for adults and children (not infants); one size fits all. They are washable and reusable and made in the USA. Please see the one pager, attached, for more info. My SDVOSB can handle your orders. Again, we ship before all of the larger contractors and most importantly, Mammoth wants your business. Stay healthy.
The Links to Freedom board and staff decided to work through adversity and rely on American resilience toward overcoming the Corona-Virus. L2F continues planning efforts toward hosting their Links to Freedom Cup in October 2020 at Springfield Golf Country Club (SGCC), one of the finest courses in N. Virginia. The press release is attached with information about the pairing party with PGA/LPGA golf legends, the participant give-aways and opportunities for you/your company to support our Wounded Warriors and American heroes. Please see the attached press release and register at l2fcup2020.perfectgolfevent.com. “Golf is my passion and has given me a wonderful life. Working at Ft. Belvoir helped me develop an equal passion, our Service Members. Too many went away for a year and came back different. I wanted to help every one of them. Today, Links to Freedom is that program," said Steve Greiner, PGA Professional and L2F Exec. Dir. “I am very proud of our program, our staff and the people who support us.” Visit Links to Freedom today for more information about their incredible golf-therapy program for Wounded Warriors and their families at linkstofreedom.org.

The Clyde Luther Heroes Classic will benefit Links to Freedom (linkstofreedom.org) and the Wounded Warriors who participate in that program. Foursomes are needed, hole sponsors are needed. The tournament features Washington Capital "Great," Peter Bondra and NHL Hall of Famer, Rod Langway on Monday, 7 October 2019! Sign up today!
Dear Greater Springfield Chamber - I want to introduce you to our great organization – Links to Freedom (linkstofreedom.org). Steve Greiner, our Executive Director transitioned from the Golf Professional at Fort Belvoir and started L2F. Steve saw a need to support our Wounded Warriors and realized the game of golf could help them. L2F is an 8-week curriculum program that is used as a rehabilitative tool for Wounded Warriors, caregivers and Gold-Star family members. L2F has been fortunate to raise enough money (approximately $1000/participant) to send 3000 students through the L2F program; those participants are alumni for life. This fall, the Clyde Luther Heroes Classic will benefit L2F. It will be a great event at Springfield Golf Country Club on Monday, 7 October. Our honorary starter is Supervisor Pat Herrity and special guests Peter Bondra from the Washington Capitals will play with NHL “Hall of Famer,” Rod Langway. On behalf of the Wounded Warriors, Gold Star Family members, caregivers and all the golfers participating, we are looking for your company to golf. Visit our 501C3 and sign up today at https://secure.perfectgolfevent.com/eventweb/8194/. Thank you for supporting our Warriors. Healing Veterans One Stroke at a time!
