Team SFMC spends Sunday on an airport runway!

By: Team SFMC, Jillian Ellis — It was a beautiful morning last Sunday, perfect for the Manassas Runway 10k/5k and one mile fun run! This event is a favorite in the Northern Virginia area, and benefits go to the Bull Run Rotary club. The race takes place on the runway of Manassas Regional Airport. This flat course is a runner’s dream!

Runner of all ages came to the race to set personal records and see the cool vintage planes!

SFMC Inc was one of the top sponsors for the race. Supporting community events and a healthy lifestyle is very important to us!

SFMC Inc team members and frequent runners, Dana Mirch and George Ellis both ran the 10k in under an hour! Awesome job!

Jillian Ellis, Theresa Coates Ellis and Taylor Vasicek of Team SFMC signed up to volunteer for the race. Jillian suited up as the Easter Bunny and was walked around by Taylor. The Bunny was a dancing machine! After changing into her regular clothes, Jillian could not part with her bunny feet.

Dana finished the race in an amazing time of 50 minutes, drank some water, and immediately made her way over to the volunteer table to help Theresa and Taylor hand out race medals. What a rockstar! We are proud to have her on our team.


After greeting Dana and George at the finish line, Team SFMC enjoyed char burgers from Foster’s Grille. Delicious! The char burger and friendly service are what this Manassas, VA restaurant is known for.

After a fun filled day of running personal records, great food and team bonding, team SFMC is looking forward to many more summer time community events! What events are you looking forward to this summer?

The Community Association Institute (CAI) Washington Metro Chapter held the 2016 Conference & Expo on March 12th for homeowners, managers, and business partners. There were learning seminars and fun games including money booth mania. This year’s expo was held in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center with more than 190 industry-leading companies exhibited.

The learning seminars were “outstanding,” according to a visiting board member and highly recommended. The information in the seminars gave valuable lessons to homeowners and board members. Each booth displayed different themes. There was a “Minions” themed booth, “Star Wars” booth, and a basketball game!

Team SFMC had a chance to learn and interact with managers and homeowners in the DC Metro Area. This was definitely a learning experience for all who attended!
