St. John residents are noticing a big improvement along the busiest street in town — new sidewalks that run along eight blocks on First Street and one block north on Monroe, which will be completed by Aug. 19, just in time for school to start.

The Stafford County Economic Development Photo contest went well.  There were many great photos making the choice difficult!  The judges were Carolyn Dunn-Executive Director for EcoDevo, BreAnn Anshutz-summer Intern for EcoDevo, and Diane Johnson-Stafford County resident.
