About the Cover: 

Jackie Bogle Meuse, Alexandria native and Little Washington Spa owner, sent us this fabulous photo by Molly Peterson of her two canine kids – Belle the English Bulldog and Roo the Blue Merle Australian Shepard. Roo had an unfortunate accident early in July and is no longer with us. This is our tribute to Roo. If you mention the Old Town Crier when you stop in the Spa, 20% of what you spend will be donated to an animal charity of your choice.

The Old Town Crier is distributed monthly to over 450 outlets, including residential homes, restaurants, retail establishments, hotels, and visitor centers all over the greater DC metro area. Currently our in-print readership is well over 75,000 and growing!
