Cascades Blog: Fire company helps Boy Scouts retire flags

Each year, on Sept. 11, Sterling Volunteer Fire Company Station 18 in Cascades hosts Boy Scout troop 950 and its annual flag retirement ceremony. This year, the ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. behind the fire station. During the event, faded, worn and damaged flags will be put to rest with respect and burned under the watchful eye of the fire crew. Members of the community are invited to attend the ceremony and may bring their own flags for retirement.

Classic cars return: Mark your calendar. Cool vehicles of all kinds are cruising back to Cascades on Sept. 17 as Doug Megill, president and CEO of McLean Insurance, presents the sixth annual Carz Cruizin to Cure Cancer event at the lake behind the Bungalow Lakehouse restaurant.

The Potomac Falls-based event, created in memory of McLean Insurance founder Henry C. Megill, Jr., brings an incredible array of vehicles to town, from 100-year-old roadsters to the latest in high-performance sports cars. The family-friendly celebration features opportunities to look over the vehicles—cars, trucks and motorcycles—and talk with their owners. In addition, the day offers a Parade of Cars, the Number 11 Denny Hamlin FedEx Daytona 500 winning show car, a Fun Walk, music with DJ Mike Wilson, games for children and sponsored exhibits. Food will be available from Jersey Mike’s Subs, The Bungalow Lakehouse and The Corner Bakery.

The festivities are a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and include a silent auction, t-shirt sales, raffles with prizes donated by local merchants and restaurants and a 50/50 drawing. Last year, the day earned $40,000 for the charity.

The Parade of Cars stages at 7 a.m. at the Potomac Lakes Sportsplex and begins at 7:15 a.m. The show takes place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot at 46179 Westlake Dr., across the street from the Potomac Falls post office.

Volunteers needed: The Loudoun County Senior Center at Cascades is in need of bingo callers (no experience needed). Training in Bingo games and rules will be provided. The senior center is also looking for teachers/leaders for bridge, Mah Jongg (American version) and ballroom dance. Call 571-258-3280.

Outdoor film fun: Dulles Town Center mall and Lerner Residential Properties present a free outdoor showing of Moana on Sept. 2 at Hadley’s Park, the playground located between Dulles Town Center and route 7. The fun begins at 5 p.m. with a moonbounce and food trucks. The movie starts at sundown.
