Hello, everybody! Well, we made it to September. Turn around twice and we’ll be seeing falling leaves in a kaleidoscope of colors, cooler breezes and harvested crops. Such a lovely time of year in the ‘ville!

That orange glow in the sky isn’t from some pre-autumnal sunset, but from a myriad of birthday candles being lit this week. Happy hometown wishes go out to Sarah Smith, enjoying cake on Sept. 8, Lauren Pugh Smith, opening presents on Sept. 9, and to Megan Coz, hearing that famous song on Sept. 10.

From our Atta-Girl department: hearty congratulations go out to Tammy Case of Rockville, recently tapped as the new Systems Support Analyst for Pamunkey Regional Library. Tammy brings her vast array of information technology knowledge to the table and will no doubt use her skills to keep the electronic aspects of the four-county library system, from downloads to email to network connectivity, up and running smoothly for staff and patrons alike. Businesses know that the best and brightest talent comes from Rockville. Way to go, Tammy!

Bring the kids over to the Cochrane Rockville Library this Friday at 4:30 p.m. for First Friday Films. Catch a full-length feature on the branch’s big screen, plus enjoy free snacks, popcorn and drinks courtesy of the Friends of the Rockville Library. Call (804) 749-3146 for the film’s title.

All library branches will be closed both Saturday, Sept. 5, and Monday, Sept. 7 in observance of Labor Day. Libraries observe normal operating hours Friday and Tuesday.

Don’t miss a fabulous day (or two, or three!) in the country with Rockville’s favorite outdoor festival, Field Day of the Past. This year’s Field Day runs Friday, Sept. 18 through Sunday, Sept. 20 at the event grounds, corner of Rockville and Ashland Roads. Don’t miss the fun including tractor pulls, steam equipment demos, petting zoo, arts and crafts, food, live music, and much more. Tickets are available by calling (804) 741-8468.
