Beach Music Festival, Car Show July 26

  • Written by submitted

Shagging and cruising in the mountains of Virginia will continue for the 16th year on Saturday, July 26, at the Union Beach Music Festival and Classic Car Show in Glen Maury Park.

Over 200 classic cars are expected to be in the classic car show, which is free for spectators. The registration fee is $15 per vehicle but each registration will receive one free concert ticket. Registration begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning with trophies awarded at noon. A classic car cruise-in will be held on Friday evening at the park from 6 to 9 and will feature the Konnection Band on stage.

The beach music concerts begin under the pavilion (rain or shine) at 1 p.m. with the Embers featuring Craig Woolard, the Castaway Band and the Band of Oz. Vendors will be on hand so no outside food or drink is allowed in the concert area. Last year over 1500 people were in attendance and there was still plenty of dancing room under the pavilion. Concert tickets are $25 per person or $40 per couple for all three bands.

Glen Maury Park is also offering special camping rates of only $15 per camper per night for the festival. No pets are allowed.

Items Needed For Benefit Auction

  • Written by submitted

Doris Sibold is organizing an auction and cakewalk at the Kerrs Creek Fire Department on July 26 for Michael Rhodenizer who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 malignant melanoma. The auction begins at 10 a.m. and the cakewalk starts at 7.

Michael Rhodenizer is the son of Kenny and Doris Rhodenizer of Kerrs Creek. He graduated from Rockbridge County High School in 2000, and is the owner of Devil’s Kitchen BBQ. He is an avid hunter and helps with classes at High Country Outfitters.

The type of cancer Rhodenizer has does not respond to chemotherapy; instead he had two cycles of immunotherapy at the University of Virginia Hospital. Each immunotherapy cycle lasted about four to five days. He was given intravenous medication to support his body’s immune system in fighting off the cancer. He is responding to the treatments, a spokeswoman said.

Donations are needed for the auction. Call Sibold at 463-1914 or 570-1915 for more information.
