It’s New Year’s Eve and we’re ready to bring you more news about Tysons, Merrifield, Falls Church, Vienna and McLean — say that list fast five times — in 2020!
But first, our mighty team of three — Editor Catherine Douglas Moran, Reporter Ashley Hopko and Photographer Jay Westcott — will be taking a break on New Year’s Day.
Next week, Morning Notes will be a little different. Readers can expect it twice a week, and we’ll be giving previews of upcoming coverage, along with more opportunities for reader engagement.
Later in January, a new byline will be joining our site from our incoming intern Shreeya Aranake.
We wish you and yours a happy and safe New Year’s Eve. Feel free to tell us in the comments section what you’re excited about in the new year.
See you in 2020!
