Join Angela (Impact Business Solutions LLC) as she interviews your fellow Chamber members in the last Business Focus of the year! 😱

First, we have our First Responders Council co-chairs Dave Adams (Dave and JoAnne Adams Group) and Larry Everett (Chick-fil-A North Point Village) as they share what the council is doing to help feed our busy First Responders!

Next up, you'll hear from Carolyn Pennington (Shepherd's Center of Northern Virginia) on the programs they provide to the older generations in our community.

And last, Micki Moravitz (Micki Moravitz - Realtor Century 21 New Millennium) shares her experience as a realtor over the years, and how different things are nowadays.

Our friend, Marilyn B. had never heard the joy of Holiday Carolers before her recent visit from Cub Scout Pack 1139. Along with their festive caroling, they also made over 60 holiday cards for our isolated seniors. Our deepest gratitude to the cub scouts, @elizabeth.korondy and @and_erin for creating holiday spirit for Marilyn B and all of us at SCNOVA.🎶
