The Patrick County Chamber of Commerce unveiled the new 2019 ornament, which celebrates 50 years of “Virginia is for Lovers.”
This impressive ornament adds to an already stunning ornament collection series. It is three and one fourth inch glass, gloss dark red with silver caps, with “Love Patrick County” artwork on one side of the ornament and the Patrick County Chamber and Tourism logos and 2019 commemorative date on the other side, a beautiful addition to your already amazing collection or a beginning of a new collection series.
Going off the theme “Virginia is for Lovers,” the Virginia Tourism Corporation provided funds to assist in the construction of “Love” signs throughout the state, to be emblematic of the community in which they’re built.
Now complete, the iconic Patrick County Love Sign, one of the largest in the State of Virginia, overlooks Dehart Park and can be accessed from the parking lot of the Patrick County Branch of the Blue Ridge Regional Library in Stuart. The sign incorporates the county logo with the sweeping lines of Bull Mountain over top of the word LOVE and Patrick County spelled out on the rock façade.
The Patrick County “LOVE” sign has been officially endorsed by the President of the Virginia Tourism Corporation, the Stuart Town Council and the Patrick County Tourism Advisory Council. As a specific note of interest, this sign became the 50th located across the state, and one of just a few in Southwest Virginia.
Recently, two additional “Love” signs were added to Patrick County. One is located at Stanburn Winery (158 Conner Drive, Stuart) and the other at Nancy’s Candy Company (2684 Jeb Stuart Highway, Meadows of Dan).
Ribbon cutting ceremonies to commemorate the LOVE work will be held by the Patrick County Chamber of Commerce at 11 a.m. in Stuart and 1 p.m. in Meadows of Dan on Monday, Sept. 30. The public is invited to attend the events.
The cost of the 2019 “Love Patrick County” ornament is $13 (sales tax included).
