The Great Recession has not relinquished its icy grip on the world and small towns far and wide continue to struggle, including Occoquan.
Old man winter dumped between 18 and 22 inches on Occoquan. Took a drive through town this morning, amazing how many people don't own a snow shovel. I saw somebody shoveling with a dust pan.
The season of giving is upon us and once again the Town of Occoquan is counting on local generosity to help the homeless.
