The Dale City Civic Association and members of the community gathered at their annual banquet to recognize community leaders, volunteers, and first responders in Prince William.
The banquet was held at VFW Post 1503 in Dale City last weekend.
“Thank you Dale City for another outstanding program. I believe this program sends a loud and compelling message that the Dale City Civic Association appreciates the service provided to the citizens of Dale City. Thank you for recognizing our Deputy Sheriff,” said Prince William County Sheriff Glen Hill.
“My parents, before they started the McDonald’s, were educated here – so 34 years ago. They both have their degrees in education, and it’s so important to us,” said Ashley Welburn of the Welburn Management Family, which sponsored the Teacher of the Year Awards.
