The first-ever Taste of Annandale, on June 13, was a huge success!

Thank you to everybody who came and to the sponsors, restaurants, other vendors, and entertainers - and a special thank you to title sponsor Lambros Magiafas of Lambros Goldsmiths, who donated two half-carat diamonds, worth $7,000 each, to participants in the Diamond Dash 5K Fun Run. The winners, selected randomly, were Silvia Orellana, 34, of Annandale, and Fernando Sattori, 32, of Springfield.

Dave Marsden, Fernando Sattori, Silvia Orellana, Lambros Magiafas, and Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova.
