Exciting news took place Monday, October 13th, when San Diego based Green Flash Brewing Co. officially broke ground for the construction of their 20 million dollar facility at the northwest corner of General Booth Boulevard and Corporate Landing Parkway.  The site is only a couple of miles south of Oceana Naval Air Station, home to a fleet of roaring F/A-18s and on 9 acres in the Corporate Landing Business Park.  Green Flash bought the land from the Virginia Beach Development Authority for $1.35 million.

This month is National Moving Month. Every May marks the official beginning of the moving season, a four-month period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when millions of families relocate. Due to more than three in five Americans (62%) having a pet and the fact that most families consider their pets to be members of the family, it’s important to take the proper steps that ensure the safety and comfort of your non-human family members during any relocation (big or small).
