Do you need a little less stress and a little more magic in your holiday?
If so, look no further than Busch Gardens Christmas Town in Williamsburg, Virginia. It’s a place full of Christmas magic, so close to home. It’s that special time of year when the kids start getting so excited about Santa making a visit, but where mom and dad tend to get a little stressed. Although it is the most wonderful time of the year, shopping, wrapping, cooking, baking and preparing for family visits can be a bit overwhelming.
The most wonderful, happy, and exciting time of the year will be here before you know it! Embrey Mill will be shining like a Winter Wonderland with beautiful sparkling lights, ribbons and wreaths throughout the community, giving you that warm happy holiday feeling! Want to know a secret? Embrey Mill gets an early visit from Santa every year right before Christmas!
S.E.R.V.E. began the mission of helping Stafford County families in emergency need in 1979, This was when a devoted Social Worker and three local Pastors came together to form Stafford Emergency Relief through Volunteer Efforts affectionately known as S.E.R.V.E.
The Knight family cemetery is located on the farm formerly owned by the Knights and later, by Jackson Musselman, son-in-law to Lewis Knight. The cemetery contains several graves; however, only two are inscribed.
If you’ve been to Dogwood Dog Park in Phase 1, you’ve probably noticed the fenced-in area immediately to the right of the entrance. This area has massive aluminum planter boxes with a variety of gorgeous plants growing in them. This is our community garden, made exclusively for the use of residents living in Embrey Mill.
Commuting to work (especially if you live in the Stafford area but work in D.C., Fairfax, or Woodbridge) can be a huge money and time saver. It can also be a great way to make friends and lessen the impact on the environment.
It is that time of year again; the kids are back to school! We all know the first few weeks of school can be stressful for families with getting back on a schedule, making it to the bus stop on time, packing lunches and helping with homework. What’s a better way to relieve some of that stress for both, mom, dad and the kids by having a fun family day at one of the many Fall Festivals right in here in Stafford County?
Somehow, it’s already November, the leaves are well into “Fall” mode, and the fall school sports season is well under way. As things heat up at the local high schools, it should be noted that two prominent schools – Colonial Forge and North Stafford – have a long-standing sports rivalry that, once again, will be in full swing.
With Embrey Mill being centrally, located near Washington DC and several military bases we understand, maybe a little more than most, what it is like to have so many of our loved ones, neighbors and friends, fighting for our freedom. Lighting our front porch green is a small token to show our gratitude.
You can feel the air changing; the kids are once again riding the giant yellow school bus; and leaves are starting to change color, the signs of Fall are all upon us.
Every year Embrey Mill’s HOA holds a family focused Fall Festival. Imagine Super Hero’s, Jedi, and Power Rangers taking over Embrey Field as they come to play games and compete for the best costume prize.
We are very excited to see this project get under way, as this change will benefit everyone living at Embrey Mill by reducing traffic jams and by providing faster commuting times. This is a great development for Stafford County and we are so pleased that they will be beginning construction soon!
Here at Embrey Mill we are proud to say that we have total “Walkability” in our neighborhood. You can walk to any of our park as well as from one phase of the development to the other. On any given day as you ride through Embrey Mill you will see moms, kids, and dog walkers traveling up and down our sidewalks. Our goal at Embrey Mill was for you to come home, park your car and leave the busy lifestyle behind you as your enjoy all the community has to offer.
When you say it you can feel it :Chill-e Cook-off. That’s right it’s time to chill out and enjoy the 2nd Annual Embrey Mill Chili Cook-Off as an Embrey Mill resident. This is a family fun event where everyone can enjoy the afternoon in Festival Park flying kites, throwing Frisbees, tossing the ball and just Chill-ing.
