12 FREE Printable Menu Planners


If you’ve been wanting to save money at home, the food budget is a great place to start. Cutting back on convenience foods, take out, and restaurants will make a big dent in how much you spend each month. One reason we spend so much on such items is because we don’t have a lot of time or we don’t want to make the ‘what’s for dinner?’ decisions after a hard day. Planning ahead for meals will help you eliminate the worry of what to make. You’ll know what to shop for before the last minute because your grocery list will be done already. You can even look forward to busy nights by planning crock pots or freezer meals ahead of time.

To get you started, I’ve searched the internet to find you 12 FREE Menu Planning Printables.

 

 

 

The Town of Leesburg encourages residents to observe the designated “National Day of Service and Remembrance” by volunteering, donating time or goods, or simply offering a helping hand during this day of commemoration.

Town of Leesburg to Observe 17th Anniversary of 9/11 with Morning Ceremony at Freedom Park

In commemoration of the tragic events and the lives lost throughout the United States on September 11, 2001, the Leesburg Town Council will hold a brief remembrance ceremony at the Town’s Freedom Memorial, located at Freedom Park (off Tolbert Lane at Evergreen Mill Road) on Tuesday morning, September 11, 2018.

The ceremony will begin at 8:40 a.m. For the safety of attendees, the gates to the park will close at 8:30 a.m. prior to the start of the ceremony. Anyone wishing to attend the ceremony is encouraged to arrive early.  Immediately following the ceremony, the gates will re-open and the park will remain open to the public until 9:00 p.m. for those wishing to visit the memorial on their own.

In addition, the Town Council will observe a moment of silence and reflection during their regular meeting on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, at 7:00 p.m.

“Remembering September 11 is a solemn commitment that reminds our community of the ultimate sacrifice many innocent people made that day,” said Leesburg Mayor Kelly Burk. “The people in the towers and the first responders lost their lives because a group of cruel and malicious men decided the United States was evil and needed to be taught a lesson. Well, a lesson was learned. The lesson is that America is strong and its people responded to hate with love, unity, and compassion. We owe a great deal to the men and women who lost their lives that day and we must never forget.”   

The Town of Leesburg encourages residents to observe the designated “National Day of Service and Remembrance” by volunteering, donating time or goods, or simply offering a helping hand during this day of commemoration. The “Serve America Act” was signed into law by President Obama on April 21, 2009. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a supporter of the legislation, said, “September 11 should not only be a day of mourning. It should be a day to think about our neighbors, our community, and our country.”

America’s 9/11 Foundation annual commemorative motorcycle ride will come through downtown Leesburg on Friday, August 17, 2018.  The ride, which will begin in Somerset, PA, and stop at the Pentagon before ending at the World Trade Center site, honors the memory of the heroes, volunteers and victims who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001.  The parade of motorcycles is expected to enter Leesburg heading south on Business Route 15 around 2:00 p.m. and will travel down King Street through the historic downtown.   The motorcycles will proceed from South King Street to the Route 7/15 Bypass and onto the Dulles Greenway.  

The time the riders will enter Leesburg is approximate, based on traffic, road construction, and weather.  King Street will be closed to traffic as the motorcycles pass through town.  All King Street intersections will be closed to east-west pedestrian and vehicular cross traffic.  The road closures are expected to last 30 to 45 minutes until the motorcycles are clear of town.
