Celebrate the Solstice: Potluck Social returns June 19

We had such a great time last year at Fort Scott Park at our 2013 Solstice Potluck Social, we decided to do it again!

Come on out starting at 5:30 p.m. and bring a healthy, labeled dish to share. Children should be dressed ready to play on the playground and in the sandbox. The park has restrooms and we've rented the pavilion. The picnic will go forward rain or shine except in cases of extreme weather such a lightning, high winds, or tornado watch. We'll wrap up by 8:30.

Chalk, bubbles and simple crafts welcome as well!

Fort Scott Park is located near Ridge Road and 23rd St between Crystal City and 395 at 2800 Fort Scott Dr., Arlington, VA

What's in your supplements?

Are you confused about nutritional supplements? Not sure which ones to buy or what ingredients to avoid? What’s necessary and what might be a waste of money?

We all learned so much about this topic on May 15 from Dr. Keri Marshall, MS, ND of Makai Naturopathic Center in Bethesda, MD and Molly Carr, Nurse Practitioner and Herbalist affiliated with Village Green Apothecary, a compounding pharmacy and supplier of a wide variety of supplement lines. 

Thank you to Molly and to Dr. Marshall for the wonderful information they shared with us. Notes will be sent to members. Email jessicahmnarlalex (at) gmail (dot) com to request notes.
