The 27th Annual Falls Church News-Press Holiday Party was held on Thursday, Dec. 15 at the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment. Students from George Mason High School’s band program played tradition seasonal hits while the extended News-Press family, public servants, residents and members of the business community chowed down on salad, pasta and pizza from Ledo’s. Tom Clinton had a little help from Debra Z. Roth behind the bar this year. There was a noticeable uptick in the amount of children and teenagers present at the party, with recent News-Press interns, current freelancers and the children of the extended News-Press family in attendance.
