June 20, 2014:
ADAMS was very pleased to receive a visit by the Honorable Mark Warner, member of the U.S. Senate for the state of VA. Senator Warner came to speak to the congregation after the 1st and 2nd Jum’a prayers that day, and to bring Ramadan greetings and his personal best wishes for the Adams Community during this holy month. Between the 2 Juma presentations, the Senator had a private meeting with members of Adams Board of Trustees, and with other Community Leaders, to listen to our concerns and the issues of importance to our community, and to outline his aspirations and hopes for the US Senate and Congress for 2014 and beyond. The Senator was extremely impressed with the number of people at the Jum’a prayers and the obvious keen interest that so many in our community shared when meeting him thereafter. He also promised to return frequently to ADAMS in the future, and asked us to convey to all ADAMS community members his wish to have his office be fully responsive to any individual issues and concerns.
