More than 200 people registered for the 11th annual Forum for Rural Innovation, breaking previous attendance records. The Forum is a cooperative educational effort by the Offices of Agricultural Economic Development and Cooperative Extension in Clarke, Fauquier and Loudoun Counties, Virginia; Berkeley and Jefferson Counties, West Virginia; and the Town of Berryville, Virginia. Current and prospective farmers from across the region travel to Winchester, Virginia to network and find out what is succeeding now, as well as what the agriculture community is doing to ensure that farming continues to be successful in the future.

This year's forum featured an exhibition room where attendees could sample or purchase products from Mock's Greenhouse, Copper Fox Distillery and Stonehouse Meadery, among others. The program featured eight speakers and panels with subjects ranging from specific farming methods to liability insurance. Farmers shared success stories and offered tips to their colleagues.

After being held in cities such as Belfast, Melbourne and New York, the World Police and Fire Games are coming to Northern Virginia in 2015. Running from June 26 to July 5, the games will bring 12,000 athletes and 30,000 spectators to the area. The estimated impact to the local economy is between $60 and $80 million. What does this mean to you? If you're a Loudoun business owner, it's time to capitalize on this extraordinary event.

As DED Assistant Director Miguel Salinas said to the assembled crowd at a recent Chamber of Commerce information session, the World Police and Fire Games is a "tremendous opportunity to showcase Loudoun." In fact, eight events will actually take place in the county, including bowling, badminton and ice hockey. Leesburg's own Morven Park will be home to one of the most highly anticipated events, outdoor soccer. Athletes and spectators will be flying into Dulles International Airport, and the Holiday Inn - Dulles will be the transportation hub. While events are spread throughout the region, Loudoun County will be the athletes' first and final destinations.
