certa_300

On Saturday, Dec. 10, Western Loudoun Volleyball Club held its annual all day Certification Day for the upcoming season at Patrick Henry College. There were 6 teams, 70 players, 12 coaches and 8 hours of volleyball to ensure players had the necessary certifications needed for the upcoming club season.

WLVBC’s motto is “When We Serve Well, Good Things Happen”. This motto is emphasized by coaches and Board members both on and off the courts. The kids on these teams donated over 280 pounds of human food to Loudoun Hunger Relief and 100 pounds of pet food to Loudoun County Animal Shelter. WLVBC Director Matt Croson pulled everyone together and the focus was not on volleyball. Instead, his emphasis was that “each one of you have the power to go out and make someone smile….each one of you can go out and make a difference in the world”. Collecting and donating food was just one way to give back to the community.

Plastic Pet Food Bins

February 3, 2016 Feature Comments Off on Plastic Pet Food Bins
shutterstock_169196159

By Kimberly Correnti

We love to use plastic bins to store kibble. It’s quick, keeps food fresh and stores easily. However there are some things to consider before you dump your pets food into this potential health risk haven. Residual oils and fats that transfer to the bin can become rancid after time and contaminate new fresh food. Plastic bins may get micro cuts not visible to the eye. These areas can also harbor all kinds of nasty little buggers that can spoil your pet’s food. Mold spores or bacteria can contamination the kibble which can lead to diarrhea and vomiting.

I recommend you open the bag and place (the bag containing the kibble) it inside of the bin. This reduces the risk of transferring anything onto the plastic. If you wash out the bin, use hot water, light soap and rinse well.

Make Your Holiday a Safe One: Follow Safety Guidelines for Cooking & Decorating

December 23, 2015 Feature Comments Off on Make Your Holiday a Safe One: Follow Safety Guidelines for Cooking & Decorating
Winter Holiday Safety

Christmas trees, decorations, candles, holiday cooking: all contribute to holiday fires. The National Fire Protection Association says the top three days for home candle fires are Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year’s Day, while the three leading dates for home structure fires caused by cooking are Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season:

Christmas Trees
• Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
• Get rid of the tree when it begins dropping needles. Dried-out trees are a fire hazard and shouldn’t be left in the home, garage or placed outside against the home. Loudoun County has a Christmas Tree Recycling Program that turns the trees into to mulch available for free to county residents.

Holiday Decorating
• Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
• Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.
• Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
• Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of light strands to connect.

Holiday Cooking
• Keep an eye on what you fry
• Be alert when cooking
• Keep things that can catch fire away from cooking area

More tips on how to have a fire-safe holiday are available online from the National Fire Protection Association.
