Boutiques to Check Out — Support local business and discover new places to shop. Connection Newspapers has a list of a number of great local boutiques around Arlington.

Planetarium Supporters to Fundraise at Fair — The Friends of the David M. Brown Planetarium have raised more than $15,000 so far, but remain far from their $402,800 goal. To help close the gap, they’re going to set up a booth at the Arlington County Fair. More from the Sun Gazette.
