Paying It Forward

I wanted to extend a big thank you to all the folks in

Arlington who take the time, effort, and expense to decorate their homes

for Halloween and who pass out candy to eager trick-or-treaters. Our

first two years in Arlington were spent in an apartment in Clarendon,

and after realizing that trying to trick-or-treat in an apartment

building was an exercise in futility, we would take our two children out

on Halloween to explore the nearby neighborhoods of single family homes.

I wished I could thank people individually at the time, but my kids

were just too fast. Now we are homeowners in Arlington and are eager to

pay it forward this Halloween, and for years to come.
