Women Can Fly is a newly created volunteer organization whose mission is to promote women of all ages to fly. We are pilots and aviation enthusiasts who know the exhilaration of flight, the joy of discovering new horizons and the friendships born of shared visions, with the hope that more women will fulfill their dreams by joining us.
This inaugural flying event will be co-sponsored by the Ninety-Nines, Inc. (International Organization of Women Pilots), the Commonwealth’s Department of Aviation, Liberty University, and Warrenton-Fauquier Airport.
According to the Small Business Administration, more than 50 percent of all Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. In Loudoun County, about 86 percent of businesses have fewer than 20 employees. Loudoun will celebrate Small Business Week with a number of events to help small companies grow.

One Busch Gardens Boulevard
Williamsburg, Virginia 23187
Named by NAPHA as the world’s “Most Beautiful Park” for its 22nd consecutive year, Busch Gardens condenses all the joys of international travel into one exciting park, which contains more than 100 acres of land. The park places its thrilling rides amongst the simplicities of multiple cultures abroad. For example, the park’s newest roller coaster, Verbolten (Spring 2012), puts a heart-stopping twist on a classic autobahn tour of the German countryside.

Perfect for elementary school-aged children (but also for anyone else with a “splash” of youth in them!), the Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole replicates the fun of the “Old West” with its array of themed water slides, play areas, flumes, and floating toys. The Water Mine is conveniently located in Reston, within the Lake Fairfax Park, so it yields easy accessibility to the Lake Fairfax Park playground, carousel, fields, and trails.
