Federal Government Update
Federal Government Update

The 10th Congressional District embodies what is great about the Commonwealth of Virginia.  From a suburban core in the East to expansive farmland in the West, the 10th District showcases the best of what Virginia has to offer to the nation.  The 10th District has attracted many of the leading internet, high-tech, health, and defense companies in the world to Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley and is home to thousands of federal employees and other highly skilled professionals and entrepreneurs.  Loudoun and Fairfax Counties are ranked as the #1 and #3 places to live in the country respectively because of the quality of life they offer residents.

Agriculture also plays a key role in the 10th Congressional District.  In the western counties, there are rows upon rows of apple and peach orchards, and the wine industry and craft breweries are growing rapidly.  Kraft Foods and Hood Milk operate large manufacturing facilities in the City of Winchester, also located in the western part of the District.

Tourism is another draw to the District, whether you are hiking on the Appalachian Trail, fishing on the Shenandoah River, leaf peeping on Skyline Drive, or taking the Metro to downtown Washington there will always be something new to explore. The 10th District is home to Manassas National Battlefield Park as well as many Civil War battlefields. These parks and battlefields are a reminder of the great and consequential history of the Commonwealth.

As you can see, Virginia’s 10th Congressional District is a place where you can live, work, learn, explore, and thrive.

Ashburn Rotary Blood Drive
Clean Water Project
The Rotary Club of Ashburn is raising funds to bring clean water to Ghana in West Africa. 
 
 
The boreholes in Zuarungu Torson and Wakii in the Bolgatanga Municipal district is estimated to serve a combined 850 people. Rotary global grant 17-57675 will provide communities with clean water and sanitation with improved hygiene in the Bolgatanga area of the Upper East Region in Ghana. 

Our goal is to provide communities with twenty-three boreholes (deep wells), three small town water systems and two hundred and seventy-five new Microflush toilets with hand washing sinks. The new Microflush toilets will be provided to schools and homes to increase awareness and use of the new sanitation technology. We also want to develop training videos and materials to teach new Microflush toilet makers. The project budget is $200,000. The result of not having access to clean drinking water can caused widespread disease resulting in the inability for those affected to work or support themselves. The project is anticipated to begin in summer 2018 through finish in 2019.

The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
