T.C. Wins First Playoff Game Since 1990 — “T.C. Williams’ varsity football team won its first playoff game in almost 30 years [on Friday, Nov. 15], defeating West Springfield 21-20 and advancing to the district semifinals.

Coalition Concerned by Vaping Epidemic — “Amid growing concern over deaths and lung injury associated with e-cigarettes, use of these products among high school and middle school students is increasing–a concern Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria (SAPCA) Coordinator Emma Beall and other regional advocates discussed during a roundtable hosted by Virginia Senator Tim Kaine’s office.” [City of Alexandria]

Local Music School Has Touring Teachers — “For the last eight years, Rock Of Ages Music at 114 E. Day Ray Ave. has taught hundreds of students that it’s not only possible, it has set the stage for their success… ROAM currently employs 17 music teachers, and many are touring musicians like Anthony Pirog, who plays in the Fugazi rhythm section, and Adam Orlando, the drummer for RDGLDGRN.” [Zebra]

Where to Give Locally in Alexandria — “Many nonprofits in the city need your help to provide a holiday meal for Christmas, to provide children with gifts. There are literally hundreds, probably thousands, of ways to give locally this season.” [Gazette Packet]

DMV residents who turn in their gas-powered lawn tools will receive a FREE Ego Power+ replacement including batteries and chargers, while supplies last.
