I hope you have enjoyed the various events and festivals that we have had thus far. So, much has happened all over the county. We had fly-ins, strawberries, barbeque, music, car cruises, and more! We are having a great time entertaining our locals and the many tourists that have graced us with their presents. Patrick County is fabulous!
Just a quick reminder for the Beach Music Lover, the festival begins this week.
Also, I want to remind you that we are continuing our efforts to grow the VA250 committee, and I have been asked to elaborate. So, what is this? On July 4, 2026, the United States will commemorate and celebrate the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution and the Revolutionary War. VA250 is the State (Virginia) committee, and each locality is encouraged to form a group to commemorate our Independence. We seek individuals to help us create ideas and events to help educate and remember the events. So, come and join us in this multi-year project. Virginia’s History is America’s history.
Well, I must go, and if you have any questions, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you. Remember, tell everyone to Come, get Lost, and Find Yourself Here!
Let’s talk again next week.
